If you’ve ever actually heated vinegar in the microwave you know that the smell will keep you out of the kitchen for quite some time. GAG
Agreed!!! Yikes…just tried the vinegar in the microwave the other day and I will NEVER do that again. Yes, it works to clean your microwave, but like Kay said, it smells nasty for a while…and even the food you heat up tastes like it has a little vinegar in it…gag!!!
BTW…Great blog…I visit often and enjoy the tidbits found here! Thanks! =)
These videos basically wrap up 1/3 of the things on Pinterest in a couple minutes.
Excellent suggestions. One caveat: hot water does not freeze faster than cold — another urban legend.. Think of it this way. If the cold water is 60 degrees and the hot water is 80. The hot water will cool to 60 and from there it will take as long as the cold water.
Nope, too simplistic.
While the mpemba effect is not a universal rule (it obviously only occurs under the right conditions, for instance water at 99 degrees will not freeze faster than water at 1 degree), it has been observed and documented in various experiments under various circumstances from the 1960′s (when it first kinda came back on the scene) all the way up to today.
It’s not that it freezes //faster// it’s that hot water freezes at a //faster rate//.
This means that water at 100F will drop 40F (to 60f) faster than water at 40F will reach 0F. The freezing rate is faster, but the total time to freeze is longer.
Why anyone thought physics stopped working in the freezer is beyond me.
If you don’t like the smell of vinegar, lemon juice works just as well and smells nice.
Does the lemon juice get diluted ?
