Don’t just work hard, work more efficiently and effectively! Here’s a fantastic collection of ten household tips for making doing what you need to do even easier.
10 Fantastic Household Tips + Life Hacks
1.) Use Tins for Storing Spice Packets. Use metal storage tins for storing spice packets in the pantry. It keeps them contained in one place and makes them easy to remove and flip through to find what you need.
2.) Store Craft Supplies in the Closet. Use multi-tiered pants hangers to store craft ribbon and spools. Not only does it save on space, but it keeps them out of site reducing the look of clutter in your work space.
3.) Use Lemons to Whiten. Use freshly sliced lemons and boiling water to whiten linens and socks that have gotten dingy over time.
4.) Schedule with Clothespins. If you lack calendar space – either to hang or write in – schedule your week using clothespins. Simply label seven clothespins with the days of week, then attach magnets or hang clothespins on a wire. Put your daily to do’s and appointments for the week on index cards and attach to the clothespins with the appropriate day of the week.
5.) Organize Your Fridge with Baskets. Use plastic baskets or bins inside your refrigerator to store like food items. It helps to keep your refrigerator shelves clean and allows you to store more with easier access.
6.) Re-Use Dryer Sheets for Dusting. Re-use dryer sheets for dusting after you’ve dried your clothing. It’s an easy reminder to do a quick dusting once laundry is done allowing you to re-use a product and keep on schedule with housework.
7.) Hang Your Flip Flops. Use coat hangers to create a hanging system for your flip flops to keep them paired and off the floor. Then mount a low to floor curtain rod in your closet for your new shoe control method to keep the space up top for clothes.
8.) Use Chalkboard Labels. Spray paint sticker labels with chalkboard paint for labeling multi-purpose canisters in your kitchen, bath or office that you can’t see inside of. Simply erase and relabel when you use your canister for a new purpose.
9.) Spring Clean your Mattress. Many of us probably never get around to cleaning our mattress often unless there’s a mishap. Clean and deodorize your mattress while your linens are in the wash with a bit of baking soda and lavender essential oil.
10.) Naturally Scent Your Home. Save on home fragrance oils and naturally scent your home by simmering a saucepan of aromatic essential oils, food peels and spices.
