So never throw away your rice water again! Nine out of ten people throw the water out of their rice after cooking it. Too bad as it turns out. the water you used to cook the rice for so many different things!
The next time you cook rice, pour the water into a glass or bowl instead of pouring it down the drain. Not regret! Instead of wasting rice water, you can use it for something else. Cosmetic product In Asia we have known for generations, but also in Europe we are beginning to recognize it: throwing away rice water is a waste.
This is because it is very easy to use as a cosmetic. The water you cook rice in is high in antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins B and E. It also contains something called pitera. It is a substance believed to prevent skin aging. You can also use rice water as a shampoo; is said to help reduce gray hair.
Time will tell if it actually works, but there’s no harm in trying, right? Rice water for the skin is also very suitable as a skin cleanser. Put some water on a cotton ball, rub it and moisten your skin. The vitamin B in the water stimulates the growth of new skin cells and reduces pores.
Fine lines on your face will disappear and you will have beautiful smooth skin. If that’s not a good reason not to throw away the water you cooked your rice in, we don’t know what is!
1:Rinse your dishes in a 100% natural way (1st or 2nd rinse)
with rice water My mother-in-law always washes the dishes with rice water. Since most Korean foods aren’t very greasy, this (mostly) works well. For heavy grease, I think you’ll need to use regular dish soap, but you’ll be surprised at how it handles most of your dishwashing needs.Good on your health, precise for the surroundings and precise on your fingers too. In Korea, many commercially available dish soaps contain rice water in their products, so be careful with them.

Koreans use rice water to stew (jorim) fish or wash it to remove the fishy odor.If you are making Salted Mackerel (Godeungo Jaban 고등어자반) and want it to be less salty, soak the mackerel for 30 minutes and the fish will be less salty, less fishy, and also more tender.
5. Deodorize your kimchi or different plastic containers (1st, 2d rinse)
