Random Household Tips and Tricks

Here are some random household tips and tricks found on the Internet.

  • Did you know that you can take a USED Bounce (or any brand) dryer sheet and wipe the scum or water stains off your taps in the bathroom as well as the circular part where you pull out the tap in your bathtub. You do not have to add water, simply rub with a bit of pressure, and your taps will sparkle
  • Did you know that tax is charged on juice boxes that contain less than 25% juice? If it contains more = no tax
  • If u get food grease on cloths use dish soap right on the spot and wash normally….spot gone
  • You can also reuse your used Bounce dryers sheets to dust. It picks up the dust the same way a Swifter does.
  • Buy no name vinegar (about $3) and it will last me about a month.
    Use it instead of fabric softener, and I also reuse my cleaning spray bottles and fill half with water half with vinegar. They make great all purpose cleaners, are cheap and are one less thing you don’t have to keep track of in the flyers. I think it’s also pretty green as it’s non-toxic
  • Bathroom tip- spray a LITTLE bit of shaving foam on the bathroom mirror and wipe in circles with a dry cloth until gone, do not add water. This will prevent the mirror from fogging up
  • As for tomato stains. Apply lemon juice on it and put your clothing into direct sunlinght. Like magic it vanishess.
  • Greasy hair? Take a brush and a pinch of baking soda – comb your hair with it
  • When the rubber wears out on your wiper blades, replace only the rubber portion. All you do is slide the rubber from the track and buy the rubber replacement kit at Canadian Tire. The cost is only $3.00 per blade instead of $15 to $20 each. It only took me 10 minutes to slide the two new rubber s on the wipers. Plus I saved throwing the whole blade in the landfill.
  • Put my clothes in my closet with the hangers reversed once a year. As I pull clothes out, I reverse the hanger. Every year I give away any clothes that I never took out.
  • If you need to remember to bring something with you, put your keys on it or put it in/on your shoes the night before.
  • Poop at work, saves tp at home.
  • Keep a backpack in the trunk of your car with spare pants, shirt, socks and a bunch of toiletries (Perhaps some sample sized freebies?   It’s good to have a first aid kit as well.
  • If there’s something I need to do but am procrastinating, I find something else I also need to do that’s even more of a chore. I can then put off doing the second thing by doing the first.
  • Sinus congestion? Masturbate. Don’t ask me why, just do it.
  • Never fart with headphones on while in public, you never know how loud it is.
  • If you forget any of your toiletries at home, don’t go out and buy more….stop by the front desk as they usually keep travel size deoderant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, etc. which can be had for free.
  • To save $$ on Fabric Softener sheets, cut them in half as 1/2 is plenty for drying and softening a regular sized load.
