Take a baker's rack and set your laptop on it. This lets air flow thru underneath it and thereby keeps your computer cool. This way you do not have to keep buying fans to sit under it to cool it. It works great either sitting it on your lap or on a desk.

Why go out and pay a big price for a laptop cooler? Try this tip and have one for next to nothing.

I use a cake cooling rack as my laptop cooler. It works great! I bought this rack at a dollar store for $1, so I have saved a lot of money using it.

Ripen tomatoes and other vegetables in your window.

Total Time: several days

Yield: as many as you want ripe tomatoes

Supplies:

Baking Rack to Ripen Tomatoes

  • 1 each cooling rack ($1.99)
  • 1 each tomato from garden

Steps:

  1. Put a cooling rack near a window and make sure it is elevated off the table or stand high enough to catch the sunlight. If not high enough, place 2 equal size coffee cups under the rack to lift it higher.
  2. Place the tomato or other veggies on the rack a few inches apart. The rack protects the window and table from any residue from the veggie.
  3. Each day, turn the tomato or other vegetable to a side that has to ripen. In several days the whole vegetable will ripen and then remove it from the rack.

  5. You can then eat it or store for later use.

The other day I was baking brownies and I realized that I couldn't find my wire racks for cooling. With only a few minutes until the brownies were done, I scrambled around looking.
