Rice grains are the inner part of paddy rice after being milled to remove the husk. From rice, we can create dishes such as bread, rice cakes, etc. Rice flavor is no longer unfamiliar, it is a distinctive taste derived from roasted rice, sweet and rich, giving us a sense of peace and gentleness.

According to research, rice contains important nutrients such as carbohydrates, proteins, lipids, fiber, various minerals (mainly calcium and phosphorus), as well as vitamins B1, B2, B6, and PP. Therefore, rice has excellent benefits for health and beauty, particularly in cleaning household items. Here are some uses of rice.

The dirt and dust adhering to the inner surfaces of the bottle or jar will be removed.

The rice will absorb moisture from the phone. You can also apply this method to watches.
