Home hacks are tips that help us do things more easily in our homes and lives. When someone devises an efficient way to do or clean something, these things often get shared as “home hacks”.
Remove Any Carpet Stain:
Add 1/2 cup hydrogen peroxide and 1/2 cup water to a small spray bottle. Then pour in 1/2 teaspoon dawn dish detergent.
Close bottle and shake before each use. Spray over the stained area of the carpet and allow to sit for about 2-5 minutes.
Polish Copper With Ketchup:
If your copper looks tarnished, squirt ketchup on a cloth rag. Rub the mixture on the copper until it is completely covered.
Then rinse with warm water and dry normally.
Best Way To Get Egg Shells Off Hard-Boiled Eggs:
If you add 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda to your pan of water when boiling eggs, the shells should slide right off the eggs when done.
Ice Cream Trick:
If you store your ice cream in a ziplock freezer bag, it will be softer when you get ready to scoop it out.
Clean Clogged Toilet Without A Plunger:
This idea does not work for a toilet that is overflowing.
- Step 1. Squirt a good amount of dish soap or shampoo into the toilet.
- Step 2. Add a gallon of very hot (but never boiling) water into the toilet bowl
- Step 3. Wait a few minutes. The water should break up the toilet paper and the soap should help it go down the pipe. You may need to repeat steps 1 and 2.
Cleaning Bathroom Tile:
Clean the grout in your tile floors with bathroom cleaner. Just fill the grout lines with the cleaner and let it sit for 10-15 minutes.
Use an old toothbrush to scrub the grout, then let it sit some more. Use a mop with water to clean the floor.
Smooth To Apply Nail Polish:
Put your nail polish in the refrigerator for 15 minutes before you apply it. It will then go on smoother.
Never Buy Paint For Kids/Grandkids Again:
To Make Paint:
- 1 cup salt
- 1 cup flour
- 1 cup water
- Food coloring
Baking Soda Instead Of Bleach:
Pour a cup of baking soda in the washing machine and your clothes will come out brighter and cleaner.
Clean Toilet With Piece Of Magic Eraser:
Snip off a piece of a Magic Eraser and drop it in the toilet. Letting it sit overnight would be best.
I hope you can use some of these home hacks to make your life easier.
