Make your life easier with these simple yet useful tricks!
I am always on the search to find ways to make my life easier by doing the same thing faster or in a more efficient way. If there is a way, I'll try to find it!
It does not have to be the invention of the wheel, but simple little things here and there, add up to a lot of time saved on things you do around the house.
These are some of my own favorite hacks at home . . . and I know you'll love them as much as I do!
Eggs Storage — Don't waste your time transferring the eggs to that fancy plastic egg tray. Use the carton they come in. Cut the lid for easy access, and simply place it straight in your refrigerator!
Remove Prints — Use nail polish remover to remove prints from product containers your want to reuse. Nail polish remover can even remove accidental permanent marker marks from most non-porous surfaces if you remove it right away. (For permanent marker marks, always test on a non-conspicuous area).
Hot Dog Buns — Do you struggle not to brake the hot dog bun when getting one or just a few out of the bag? The reason? Simple! They are bagged the wrong way. Pull the whole pack or buns out, and replace them in the bag sideways . . . done! Now they can be pull one by one easily.
Pet Hair — If you have pets, you know that it is almost impossible to keep them out of your furniture. Use a small damp terry cloth towel to easily and quickly remove all that hair away. The terry cloth works as bristles dragging all the hair, that easily attaches to the damp cloth.
Extra Space In Your Closet — Who doesn't need extra space in their closet? Get extra space by stacking hangers together with the plastic ring from juice cartons. I actually prefer this over the soda tab, just because the plastic ring it is wide enough to fit even wide hangers. In addition, we rarely buy soda in our house.
You can also use this trick to pair clothing items that are part of a suit, and go together.
Fix A Loose Thread — Did your favorite shirt or sweater get a loose thread and looks ruined? Do not cut the thread! Use a scribe, a toothpick, or any thin-pointed tool to push the loose thread until it's completely on the wrong side of the sweater. Once on the other side, gently pull the thread, until it looks flat on the front. (Try to find the spot the thread belongs to, and push it exactly through that point).
Scrub Cleaner — I love to use the old fashion powder scrub to clean certain things that need a little extra scrubbing. But when I run out of scrub, I just spread some salt on top of my regular all-purpose cleaner, and it'll do until I buy my scrub.
Open Your Bedroom Door — If your bedroom door lock is the style above, and you lost your little metal key, keep a soda can tab or a coin on top of your door frame. You could also use a table knife . . . your door will open like magic!
Improve Your Pump Sprayer — Use every drop of you pump spray product by gently curving the plastic tube forward on the same direction of the nozzle. Gently curve it several times forming a J, and holding the tube in the J position for few seconds each time. (If the plastic tube is not long enough to reach the bottom, this trick won't work anyway . . . sorry ☺).
Rethread Any Loose Drawstring — If the drawstring came off of a hoodie, pants, or any other item, you can easily rethread it using any of the methods shown above:
Avoid Trashcan Bags Static — I don't know about you, but I used to hate the static cling of the trash bags when I placed them in the can. Not Anymore! To AVOID it, open the bag in the opposite direction of its folding and give it a good shake or two while holding it open, AND place the bag in the trash can while also keeping the bag opened in the opposite direction of its folding! (The drawstrings will most likely be now on the sides, rather than the middle).
