How to of the Day
How to Use a Sharpening Steel
If you bought a set of knives, it probably came with a sharpening, or honing, steel. Honing will keep your blades sharper for longer, especially since honing will not remove part of the metal blade like sharpening does. When you use the honing steel properly, you can actually push the blade of a knife back into the correct position. Hold the honing steel vertically and move the knife blade down at an angle. Maintain your sharp knives to prevent damage to the blades.
How to Crochet the Waffle Stitch
The waffle stitch is a distinct, textured crochet stitch that resembles a waffle. The pattern is achieved by using a combination of double crochet stitches and front post double crochet stitches. It is an easy stitch to learn as long as you have mastered the basics of crochet, such as how to chain and double crochet. Try making a washcloth, scarf, or hat with this fun textured crochet stitch!
How to Construct the Tangent Line to a Circle
A line tangent to a circle touches the circle at exactly one point. The tangent line is perpendicular to the radius of the circle.

How to Fix a Hole in a Shirt
Discovering a hole in your shirt can be frustrating. Fortunately, you don’t have to get rid of your shirt because of a minor hole. You can fix the hole in your shirt at home using a patch or a needle and thread. By using thread or fabric that matches the colour of your shirt, no one will be able to tell that your shirt had a hole in it.
How to Remove Stubborn Wallpaper
Removing stubborn wallpaper can be an exhausting home improvement project. Depending upon the paste that the installer used, it can be resistant to scraping and traditional water-based removal methods. By identifying what kind of wallpaper you are removing, and what method was used to apply it, you will be able to soak or steam the paper and remove it with a putty knife. Taking the time to properly remove stubborn wallpaper will ensure that you do so safely and leave your walls wallpaper and damage free!

4.76 / 5 Stars | 21 Reviews

by Phoena

"Pickled ginger is called gari or amazu shoga in Japanese. It's served with sushi or sashimi and eaten between different kinds of sushi. It helps to clean your taste buds and enhance the flavors. It's also great with Century Eggs - a Chinese delicacy. You can find prepared pickled ginger in pink or white at most Asian markets but I preferred to make my own and share with family and friends."
