How To Look After Your Salt And Pepper Shakers
You might as well make yourself as useful as your gift. Here’s some great advice to accompany your awesome present:
> Keep the salt and peppers in their separate shaker or grinder. Salt is corrosive and salt shakers and grinders have stainless steel inserts to make them long lasting.
> If you’re not a frequent pepper user, store only a small amount of pepper in your pepper grinder. Pepper can go bad and lose its aroma.
> Salt and Pepper Grinders have different settings for a coarse or finer grind. By adjusting the mills’ screw you can adjust the grind.
> Clean the inside mechanism with a brush, not water.
> When using pink or green peppercorns, combine with white or black peppercorns. This prevents clogging.
> Store fresh peppercorns away from direct sunlight.

> Salt is placed at the front door and corners of a new home or business to bring good fortune and ward off evil spirits
