SBI Linen Couche - wash before first use?

June 19, 2012 - 7:48am -- MNBäcker

I just bought a few yards of linen couche from SFBI - should I wash it before the first use? I have read conflicting opinions on the topic after a search.

Als, I bought 5 yards - should I cut the pieces down to the sizes (1 yard each) before or after washing (if I need to wash)?

I do know never to wash once I start using the material.

Thanks in advance,

Egg Wash (How to Store Unused Eggs)

August 30, 2007 - 10:44am -- aladenzo

I know eggs are not that expensive and I just love using egg wash on my baked breads for its color, shine, crust, etc. But sometimes, I just happen to use very little and end up cooking scrambled eggs. I recently read in another website that you could freeze unused eggs after using it for egg wash. Someone also suggested putting these unused eggs on an ice cube tray. Would this be safe? What's the best container for storing frozen eggs? How do you properly thaw frozen eggs? And do you have to use them at once if thawed?
