Instant Trash Liners

trash-bag-liners

Replacing trash liner bags can be a real drag, so we’ve got a hack to minimize the hassle. Rather than replace liners one by one, load up a half dozen or so liners in one shot. When it’s time to take out the trash, you’ll have more liners ready to rock. As an added bonus, the additional liners can also catch any trash goop if you happen to use a bag with a rip or tear!

Cleaning with Baby Wipes

cleaning with baby wipes

Baby wipes aren’t just for babies. Cleaning with baby wipes is really a snap. Keep a box handy all the time for quick cleanups around the house. Baby wipes make baseboard cleaning almost fun. Wet footprints are wiped out in no time with the swipe of a wipe. And for minor makeup messes in the bathroom, wipes work like a wonder. They’re not to replace regular, disinfecting cleaning. But to tidy up, baby wipes are a low-chemical, economical solution. Some are even biodegradable.

Magnetic Bobby Pin Holder

I get a little aggravated and impatient when I can’t find a bobby pin at that critical moment when you just need one. And more often than not, that seemed to be the case. I discovered that bobby pins and magnets go together like two peas in a pod. Once I made this accidental discovery, I decided to make something of it. I adhered a few inches of magnetic strip to the inside of a bathroom drawer. When I pull the pins out of my hair, they go straight to the magnet where they stay until I need them again. No more scrounging around for bobby pins with this simple bobby pin holder!

Catch Drywall Dust When Drilling Overhead

Trying to drill a hole in a ceiling can be a messy business! Next time, grab a small diameter disposable cocktail paper plate and drill right through it. The plate will then catch most of the dust and debris as it drops from the ceiling. Make sure to use a small diameter or clear plate, otherwise you’ll find it very hard to align your bit.

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.
