I was reading Heloise just the other day ( as I always do ) and there are always really silly articles about housekeeping in there that I never think I'll use. But! It just so happens they were arguing about salt and pepper and which one goes into which..The salt goes into the container with more holes and the pepper into the container with less holes. Well my boyfriend just asked me which one salt and which one pepper goes into. and I knew. Thanks Heloise!
