In cooking, there are a number of ingredients that never cease to amaze with their versatility. They can be used not only to prepare a variety of delicious dishes, but also to find uses for them that have nothing to do with food.

In this case, according to NDTV Food, we are talking about the staple food of millions of people - rice. Everyone knows that it can be used to cook many things, but it turns out that raw rice is also healthy.

Here are 5 surprising ways to use its grains in everyday life:

Rice protects tools from rust

Have you ever wondered how rice "saves" phones that have fallen into water? The fact is that it absorbs moisture well. And for the same reason, you can store any metal objects (tools) in it to protect them from corrosion or tarnishing.

To do this, you need to place the items in a container with rice or simply add it to the toolbox,

This method, by the way, is great for storing knives. If you do not have a special stand or rack, place them in a jar of rice until the blades are completely covered.

Rice prevents sugar or salt from forming lumps

If the weather is quite humid or the sugar is not stored in an airtight jar, it is likely to develop lumps. This is another case where you can take advantage of the moisture-absorbing properties of rice.

Put a small muslin or cotton bag stuffed with rice in a container of sugar, and it will keep the sugar flowing (you can add a few grains of rice to the salt shaker in the same way).

Rice helps fruit ripen

This is not a miracle. Fruit naturally produces ethylene gas, which is responsible for ripening the fruit after it is picked. If you keep the fruit submerged in a box filled with rice, it will "trap" this gas, which will lead to its rapid ripening.

Rice can be used to sharpen blades

Are your blender blades dull? No problem! Take a good handful of raw rice and blend until it turns into a very fine powder. This technique can also be used to sharpen the blades of a mixer or coffee grinder.

How to clean a vase or kettle with rice

There are dishes or household items that have a narrow opening (spout) at the top, and therefore it is quite difficult to clean them, to get into secluded places to wash them well and remove all the dirt.

In this case, rice is irreplaceable. Unmilled rice grains, warm water, and liquid soap are a powerful combination to clean these cookware.

Make sure you stir the mixture well in the vase (kettle/pot) until you see that they are clean.
