• “To clean the glass inside your oven door, use stove-top cleaner made for your glass stovetop.” — V.P. in Florida

• “Use cold, salted water to defrost a chicken for roasting. You will have very flavorful and moist meat.” — E.D. in Kansas

• “Before removing a splinter, apply ice to the area. This is especially important with children, as it’s not so much the pain of removing the splinter but the poking that seems to last forever.” — M.M. in Minnesota

• “Disposable razors can be used to remove burrs from sweaters or wool slacks. Just be sure to keep them out of the reach of children.” — O.D. in Tennessee
