Here are some tips to make life easier!
Retrieve small items easily: Have you ever dropped something tiny on the carpet, like a screw or the butterfly off the back of your earring, and you can’t find it? Secure a nylon stocking (or any other thin fabric) over the end of your vacuum cleaner hose and wave it across the floor. The suction will hold small items against the stocking until you pluck them off.
Easy-peel hard-boiled eggs: Just put a teaspoon of baking soda in your egg-boiling water to raise the PH of the eggs, which helps the shells slide right off.
Never lose the end of the sticky tape roll again: Stick a plastic bread bag tag to the end of the tape to make it easy to locate and pull away from the roll. Plus, that’s one less bit of plastic going into landfill!
DIY cooler pack: If you need something to keep a picnic cold that won’t drip everywhere, wet a kitchen sponge and put it in a zip-lock bag, then freeze.
If your iPhone is almost out of battery: Charge it extra-quick by putting it into aeroplane mode (it’s usually the first option under your name in Settings). You should be able to charge it up to 50% in as little as 45 minutes.
Get rid of stinky shoe odours: Pop two or three dry tea bags in each shoe for 24 hours. The tea bags will absorb odour and dampness.
Clean up the last little bits of a broken glass: Moisten a piece of bread and use it to wipe up the pieces, then wrap it in a paper towel and throw it away. The texture and stickiness of the damp bread help it to pick up the little particles easily.
Stop your bathroom mirror from fogging up: Clean it with shaving foam. Just wipe a little on the mirror, clean it off with a soft cloth, and enjoy fog-free mirrors for a couple of weeks.
