“Why do you need duct tape in there?” — a question that one of our readers constantly heard from the guests. The fact is that she always had a couple of rolls of duct tape in her dish cabinet. This is what puzzled everyone who came to the house. However, the woman knew that the presence of this item in her kitchen was justified for several reasons.

First of all, having duct tape at hand is convenient. If you suddenly need to attach something, you can quickly get the tape out of the cabinet. And there is no need to search for it. But, of course, this is not the only reason. Our reader uses duct tape so that the door of the cabinet does not close too tightly.

When the door is always half-open, the dishes are well ventilated. So this prevents a musty smell from wet dishes. Besides, duct tape on the shelf doesn’t get in the way at all, even if it falls, nothing bad will happen, because it’s lightweight and won’t break.

This is an easy way to prevent unpleasant odors in your kitchen.

Like many people nowadays, I love to explore new places. My favorite type is slow travelling, when you can really blend in with locals and learn about new cultures and languages. But I think there are also perfect times for enjoying freshly baked pastry, a cup of fragrant coffee, and a good movie in the comfort of your own home. I guess I'm kind of a cultural omnivore, and I watch different types of movies, but the ones about art and food inspire me the most!
