10. Make a Heating Pad. Sew a little pouch with a natural fabric like cotton or wool. Fill the pouch up with some rice, sew it shut, and you’ve got yourself a heating pad. If you’re not feeling that ambitious, you can just fill an old sock with rice and tie the end close. When you’re ready to use the heating pad, heat it up in the microwave. It’ll stay warm for up to an hour.
11. Get Glowing Skin. If you’re like me, you just never get the amount of water right when you’re cooking rice. It always seems like there’s not enough water, and then you overcompensate and the rice is drowning. Don’t stress — save that leftover rice water and put it to use! Let it cool, refrigerate, and use to it wash your skin. For best results use brown rice water and use within 3 days. Apply it with a washcloth and rinse. Brown rice is high in vitamin E, and will give your skin that radiant glow it deserves.
