You’ve Been Making Grilled Cheese Wrong All These Years — Here’s How It’s Done

Growing up, my family always referred to grilled cheese sandwiches by a different name.

I’m not really sure why or how it got started, but in my household, they were called toasted cheese sandwiches. It wasn’t until college that I was informed I’d been labeling this all-American favorite incorrectly for more than half my life. As if that weren’t traumatic enough, I just learned that I’ve been making them improperly for my entire life, too!

So to save you readers from that cheese-filled heartache, I’m going to share this chef’s secret with you. As it turns out, cheese doesn’t just belong inside of these sandwiches.

Feel free to share the trick with all of your friends! (Or just keep this mastery to yourself.)

Sprinkle it on the outside, too!

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display(‘VN_PG_DCBM_BTF’); });

YUM.

Now that the secret’s out, make sure you never settle for a traditional grilled cheese sandwich again.

An Old Cabinet From The Thrift Store Was Transformed Into The Coolest Pet Accessory

Are you ready for a purrfect Saturday project?

Litter boxes are naturally unfortunate. Let’s face it, who wants to have a cat’s waste just sitting around out in the open?

But putting a litter box in a tight space can be a real drag, too. A small room with the litter box is basically useless, plus the smell will permeate that small space. However, one clever DIY master decided to build their feline friend a litter box condo that both contained the smell, provided privacy, and looked adorable.

They were lucky enough to find this cabinet at a thrift store.

But if you want to copy this project, you can use any kind of cabinet (new or old). The cheaper, the better, though!

It was going to be the home for their kitty’s litter box, so naturally, some things had to change.

They removed part of the cabinet they wouldn’t need.

They also gave the old thing a new paint job.

And made the cuts necessary with a saw to create a cat-sized door.

Then they bought some new handles…

And set it out to dry.

Then they put the litter box, food, and shovel inside.

Look at that organization!

It looked great, even though a litter box was hidden inside.

Somehow, they made a litter box adorable.

If you’d like to try this yourself, check out their full tutorial on making a “Poop Palace.” If you have a cat (and not a lot of space to work with), you might want to try this out.

Journalists, butt of Trump’s joke about Russia finding Hillary’s emails, dead certain he wasn’t joking

As Twitchy has noted a number of times, the strain between the news media and Donald Trump started long before his election and looks certain to continue throughout his term, especially as a new front has opened in the ongoing war between the two, with the White House hosting selected briefings off-camera.

It wasn’t only the absence of TV cameras from today’s briefings that stirred up the press; add to that White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer’s insistence Trump was joking on the campaign trail last summer when he said he hoped Russia could find Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 deleted emails.

When Even Moose Are Finding Creative Ways To Warm Up, You Know It’s Super Cold

If there’s one thing I hate, it’s being freezing cold.

That’s why now I live in a location that stays relatively warm most of the year. Growing up it was different, though, and I spent many nights curled up by a fireplace trying to get my toes warm again.

Our animal friends are used to living out in the cold. That’s why they have fur to keep them warm. Sometimes, however, it’s so cold that they get jealous of our warm houses and cars.

Watch as one moose in Russia decides to rub her face in a car’s exhaust pipe just to get that hot air. Poor baby must be freezing!

You Can Make These Toilet-Cleaning ‘Bombs’ And Never Use Nasty Chemicals Again

Looking for a way to clean your toilet without the hassle?

Then you’ve come to the right place! With just a handful of simple ingredients, you can create something that’ll do 98% of the dirty job for you. What are we talking about?

Toilet bombs!

These nifty cleaning orbs can be made at home with minimal effort…plus, you’ll know exactly what goes into them and won’t have to worry about breathing in toxic fumes while you scrub!

To make yours, all you’ll need are the following:

Use a wooden or non-reactive spoon and combine the baking soda, citric acid, and Borax in a bowl. Stir them and add 20 drops of lemon essential oil. Repeat with each essential oil you want and mix well.

Next, spray the mix with about five spritzes of hydrosol and stir well. You don’t want any fizzing to happen, so continue adding hydrosol until it is just damp enough to pack into a mold. Let them sit overnight.

This video offers a slightly different recipe. Watch how they’re made — it’s so easy!

Cleaning a toilet has never been this easy!

15 Surprisingly Useful Body Hacks You Can Use Right Now

The human body is a strange, wondrous thing, but do we really use our bodies to their fullest potential?

I mean, think about it. Plenty of us run ourselves ragged, survive on coffee, and regularly become totally consumed by stress. This can really take a toll when it comes to sleeping, eating right, and maintaining focus.

If this sounds like you, here are a few body hacks that you definitely need to add to your arsenal!

1. Falling asleep right after you study will help you retain more information.

2. Putting your tongue on the roof of your mouth will get rid of brain freeze.

3. Sleep on your left side to reduce the not-so-nice sensation of heartburn at bedtime.

4. Scratching your ear can relieve an itchy throat, since stimulating the nerves in your ears can cause your throat to twitch a bit.

5. Wearing socks while you sleep has been shown to improve sleep quality.

6. If you really want someone to take in what you’re saying, speak into their right ear. That goes directly to the processing center in the brain.

7. Strike a power pose when you want a quick confidence boost. This is great to use before job interviews!

8. Saying a few four-letter words when you stub your toe has been shown to reduce pain.

9. If you’re making a long-haul flight, change your eating schedule to that of your destination a few days before takeoff to get your body adjusted.

10. Coughing while getting an injection can make it hurt less.

11. Feeling nauseous? Press between the two tendons in your wrist for 30 seconds.

12. If you need to hold your breath longer, hyperventilate a bit before inhaling one more time and diving in!

13. If you feel pain in your side when you run, train yourself to exhale when your left foot strikes the ground. This will take pressure off your liver.

14. Stretch to improve your long-distance vision. If you work on a computer all day, periodically close your eyes and stretch major muscles. This will encourage muscles around your eyes to relax as well. Constant strain is linked to near-sightedness.

15. Wake up a sleeping arm by tilting your head from side to side. This loosens up neck muscles, which will help that pins-and-needles feeling go away faster.
