Avocados are often sold rock hard and require a few days of waiting before they are soft enough to eat. To quicken the process, place the avocado in a paper bag filled with flour. Once the avocado is in place, fill the bag with more flour until the avocado is covered completely. Roll down the edges of the bag so that it is sealed and keep it in a cool, dry place overnight.

11. Remove facial hair remover

Do you have some hairs on your face that seem to have popped up over night? Mix one egg white with 1 tablespoon of sugar and 2 teaspoons of flour until it forms a paste. Spread on area of the face you’d like to remove hair, wait until it dries, and then peel it off.

12. Stop a grease fire

House fires can often start due to a grease fire on the stove. To prevent a grease fire from spreading and becoming more serious, turn off the stove and pour flour on the fire if you don’t have a fire blanket handy.
