With a title like "Best home care tip of 2013" you are probably expecting something spectacular! This tip is not expensive, hard to do or even complicated. Why I just learned about it at Thanksgiving boggles my mind but it is too good not to share.
I discovered this miracle at my sister's house. She was boiling potatoes. The pot was full to the brim with potatoes and water- but it wasn't boiling over causing the normal holiday mess. No, it was just happily and rapidly boiling away. What was her trick? This is crazy but apparently it works like a charm.... drum roll please.. a wooden spoon placed over the top of the kettle!!!! Seriously!!???!!! Yup!!!
