Rubbing salt and pepper shakers end to end to facilitate pouring.I saw this tip on the internet and would have never guessed it.

The bottoms of the salt and pepper shakers have a rough edge which can be used to get the salt and pepper out with little effort. For pepper, just gently rub the bottom of the salt shaker against the bottom of the pepper shaker and watch what happens.


I made a pot of soup and used this method to put pepper in the soup. In just a second or two, I had the amount needed. Sure beats that shake, shake, shake method.
