Here at BrightNest, we like to keep it fresh. Fresh spices in our potpourri, fresh-ground vanilla in our pancakes and fresh ninja-chopped bread crumbs in our casseroles. How do we keep it all so fresh? One tool: a coffee grinder: http://amzn.to/1x7rkvE

Important: Clean your coffee grinder before you try any alternative uses. If you don’t, the oil from the leftover coffee beans will infiltrate your spices or other ingredients and make them coffee flavored. Realizing you need to clean your grinder? Here’s how: http://bit.ly/ULehBM

Flying sparks are obvious, but lots of other electrical danger signs are more subtle. Keeping an eye out for these five warning signs can mean the difference between fire prevention and a fiery disaster. http://bit.ly/1rnxSXw #firesafety   #home
