Although they look snazzy in the kitchen, they easily pick up fingerprints and streaks, making them a bit of a nuisance to keep clean.

But, thanks to a grandmother's handy trick, you can easily clean those pesky marks right off.

An expert named Marlen Komar, who comes from a family of housekeepers, shared with Apartment Therapy her grandmother's technique for cleaning stainless steel.

It works so well that Komar said she's never using any other cleaner.

According to a sleep expert, olive oil has another use – it can prevent snoring.

If you or your partner can’t stay quiet at night, you may want to try out this hack.

James Wilson, a sleep practitioner and the founder of BeingWell, told The Sun: “If people [are] snoring, particularly if they've had spicy food or alcohol, you can take a spoonful of olive oil.

"It's anti-inflammatory and that reduces the snoring."

If you want to have olive oil on hand for these hacks, you may want to make sure that it's being stored correctly.

A food and health expert named Cory Rodriguez said most of us are making a big mistake when we purchase our olive oil.

According to the expert, “olive oil is sensitive to light, heat, and oxygen, so the chance of your olive oil going rancid is much higher.”

We obviously want to preserve that robust, fruity flavor for as long as possible.

To do that, Rodriquez said to look for olive oil that is stored in a dark, glass bottle.
