HANDY HOME HACKS

These simple yet genius tricks will make your life so much easier!

Hacks are uncommon yet creative solutions for everyday problems. Here are five simple hacks for the home that will help make your life a whole lot easier:

  1. Towel Tip – Adding a dry towel to a load of wet laundry significantly reduces drying time which also cuts down on energy use.
  2. Sharpie Stain – If your child has decorated your hardwood floors with a magic marker, apply a bit of toothpaste with a damp cloth and watch it disappear!
  3. Blend Away – To remove stubborn stains from your blender, mix lemon juice and warm water with a tiny bit of dishwashing liquid and then blend for a minute.
  4. Watch Your Step – We all know that sinking feeling when a glass shatters leaving tiny shards everywhere. To make sure you get every last sliver, press a slice of bread over the entire area.
  5. Silence Squeaks – If your creaky wooden floors make you feel like you’re living in a haunted house, just sprinkle some baby powder between any open seams to lubricate the wood and stop the squeaking.

We all want an easier life and home hacks are a great way to accomplish that as they allow you to bypass and overcome some of life’s little problems.
