Yummy Answers is about answering all the questions you might have about kitchen hacks, tiktok recipes, old wives’ tales (for the kitchen) and more.

Let’s be honest here, doing our parts for the environment does not come without some sacrifices. For me, it’s having to struggle with washing of the greased-stain takeaway containers that really gets to me. Whether it’s a healthier meal like fish soup or a heavier option such as a briyani, the grease stains on the containers usually take around three to five scrub-and-rinse to get it squeaky clean again. It feels like I end up wasting more water in the name of saving the environment.

Let’s find out.
