Humans are constantly in search of something that makes life
a little easier. Take your phone for instance, it does not only help you
connect with people around the world, it helps you save memories for years like
a regular camera would, find your way in the dark like a torch would or keep up
with schedules like a calendar would. As complex as this is, life doesn’t have
to be the same. Easy does it. There are
a few hacks which can help you get the best out of the various situations. Here are
Cleaning of rusty cutlery: The thought of throwing away
rusty cutlery can be thrown out the window with this simple hack. Put water in
a bowl, then put foil paper. Add a table spoon of salt and baking soda then put
in your rusty cutlery. Wait for 5 – 10 minutes, shake the rust off the cutlery,
then wipe with a paper towel. This technique will help remove medium rust from
your utensils and save your favorite spoon.
Getting odors out of the microwave: Your microwave is bound
to pick up some aroma when food is heated but this sweet aroma goes stale after
some time, making the microwave smell less than fresh. Using harsh chemicals to
clean the smell out isn’t safe for your microwave, there's a simple way to get
it clean and odor-free. Open the microwave, put a bowl of vinegar in the
microwave and leave the microwave closed for about five minutes. Take out the bowl
and wipe the microwave gently.
DIY sprinklers for your garden: Fancy gardening gadgets like
sprinklers, can cost a lot of money. To save you a few bucks, you can adopt the
use of empty plastic bottles which can easily be transformed into fully
functional sprinklers. It’s quite simple. All you have to do is punch some
holes into the bottle, get a tape that can withstand water and wrap the bottle
tightly to your hose, turn on the tap and watch the water go. Now you’ve got a
fabulous DIY sprinkler.
Clean your blender with liquid soap: Ever tried cleaning a
blender with your hands? You’d agree that it can be perilous to do so. It is
almost like putting your hand in a slender bowl with little blades and hoping
you don’t get cut. Thankfully, there’s an easier and safer way. After you, pour
in a little liquid soap into the blender, put some water and then blend for
some minutes. Pour out the mix and rinse to reveal a clean and fresh machine ready for
the next use.
Hairdryer to the rescue: Children can get really artistic some times
and choose to showcase their skills on your white walls with their crayon. You
would want to freak out but all hope is not lost. Just get a hairdryer, heat
the marked area to soften the crayon's wax and then wipe with a soft cloth.
Your wall is saved.
Fix a scratch with nail polish: Running your fingers through
your glass window should be all smooth but sometimes, there are those scratches,
little holes or tears that could get a whole lot worse, rendering the entire
thing practically useless. Fortunately, there's a simple solution: clear nail
polish. Just apply a smudge of clear nail polish to the affected area and
it'll be as good as new in a matter of minutes.
