Laundry detergent usually says "Fill cap to line 1," but it's impossible to see line 1, so we just fill up the cap, right? This uses 4x as much soap as you need! Take a permanent marker and mark line 1 inside the cap (you'll need a bright light to find it). Only fill to that line -- even for extra-large loads. Your clothes will get just as clean, and you'll save tons of money!
Want to eat old-fashioned oatmeal, but don't have time for the stove, and it explodes in the microwave? Just set it in the microwave for 5 minutes on 50% power. Perfectly cooked, high-fiber, low-sugar breakfast! Better than instant oatmeal any day.
