10 Household Hacks

Don’t you love it when you come across something that makes you happy? This is me when I find a great hack, there are millions of them out there, some work and some don’t, here are 10 that are tried and true

1.  Tomato Paste – Why is it so difficult to get the tomato paste out of the can!?! Here is an easy fix, open the can at one end, then flip the can and open at the other end and then push the paste through!!! Easy and no mess.

2.  Strawberries – Let’s face it, getting the stem out of a strawberry can be hard. Here is a fool proof way to remove the stem, simply stick a straw through the bottom of the strawberry through to the top!

3.  How to remove permanent market from everything!

Clothes – Hand Sanitizer

Walls – Toothpaste or Hairspray

Wood – Rubbing Alcohol

Carpet – White Vinegar

Furniture – Milk

White Board – Pencil Eraser

Ceramic or Glass – One part Baking Soda, One Part Toothpaste

4. Tangled Headphones! The struggle is real. Clip them!

5.  Unruly wrapping paper – roll the paper up and cut a toilet paper roll and clip around the paper.

6.  Bees Wax – While so good for so many things, try water proofing your canvas shoes!

Apply Wax to canvas shoes, use a blow dryer to melt the wax, let dry.

7.  Lost an earing back on the floor? Put a stocking over the end of the vacuum with an elastic and voila!
