DIY Dustpan

up cycled plastic gallon dust pan

This is a great DIY dustpan cleaning hack you can make in a pinch! Simply find a large, empty plastic container to up-cycle. It can be a plastic gallon milk container or any large plastic container that has a handle and flat side. All you need is the container, scissors or knife (I used both) and a marker to outline around the handle and flat side. You want create a useful flat shovel-like tool that you can easily sweep your pile of dirt into.

DIY Goo Gone

Just use baking soda, coconut oil and sweet orange essential oil

DIY Goo Gone really works! It’s great for removing adhesives, such as glue and stickers, from the surface of glass jars. It also works as a great exfoliant! All you need is equal parts baking soda and coconut oil, and a couple drops of sweet orange oil. Remove as much of the sticker as you can before hand, then rub in the diy goo gone with a cloth or your fingers. The baking soda acts as an abrasive whilst the oil softens and unseals the adhesives hold on the surfaces. Once you remove the adhesive completely, just wash with soapy water and voila, you’re done! If you have any left over, use as exfoliant or store away in tightly sealed container for next time.

Silver Cleaning Hack

Forget all that elbow grease! All you need for this MacGyver-style silver cleaning hack is baking soda, aluminum foil and boiling water…oh, and tarnished silver. Prepare a solution of 1/4 cup baking soda to a gallon of water in a pot. Bring to a boil. Line another pan or glass dish with aluminum foil, be sure it’s deep enough to fully immerse the silver piece you are cleaning. Place tarnished silver in foil lined container, then pour boiled solution over it. Allow to cool. Remove silver pieces and rinse with cool water, then dry with a soft cloth. It’s that easy! For extra tarnished pieces you may have to repeat a couple of times.
