I had such a great response to my homemaking tips last week – Helpful Tips for Everyday Success and Household Tips for Organizing and Living – that I decide to put together another collection of everyday homemaking tips for busy moms and homemakers. (Also be sure to check out my January 2013 post for the New Year – Frugal Tips for Saving Money!)

12 Everyday Homemaking Tips for Busy Moms and Homemakers! #tips #lifetips #lifehack #lifehacks #diy #diytips #lifestyle #homemaking

Everyday Homemaking Tips

1.) Use Coffee Filters for More Than Just Coffee. Coffee filters are multi-purpose. Grab them when in need of a substitute for something you don’t have. They’re great for cleaning glass and computer monitors. Detox your stinky shoes by filling a filter with baking soda, tying off with a rubber band and placing in your sneakers. Or you can even use it as a dryer sheet by placing a few drops of fabric softener on the filter, rubbing together, than folding in half.

2.) Sheet Storage. Store your sheet sets together in a pillow case. Not only does this keep the entire set together, but it makes for neater and more compact storage.

3.) DIY Watering Can. Take an old laundry detergent container and drill holes in the lid for an instant watering can that not only allows you to recycle a disposable container, but is sturdy enough to hold up to continued use. Plus there are no worries about water sloshing out!

4.) Keep Brown Sugar Soft. Use a marshmallow in your brown sugar to keep it soft.

5.) Ketchup Bottle as Pancake Batter Dispenser. Repurpose an empty ketchup bottle into a pancake batter dispenser and pour the right amount every time! It’s also less messy and it makes it easier for making smiley face pancakes for the kids!

6.) Organize Upright. Create more room for your flatware by storing it upright rather than laying it down. I am constantly running out of room for my knives, forks and spoons and they often spill over into the next one’s cubby. This solves that problem and allows you add more silverware to your collection for those holiday get togethers.

Create a DIY Kitchen Command Center. Keep all of your scheduling and menu planning in one place with a well organized kitchen command center. Your command center should feature a menu planning board, dry erase note board, magnet boards, and chore charts.

7.) Create a Kitchen Command Center. Keep all of your scheduling and menu planning in one place with a well organized kitchen command center. Your command center should feature a menu planning board, dry erase note board, magnet boards, and chore charts.

8.) Doggy Drawer. The dog doesn’t live in the garage, so why store his food there? Instead use a deep drawer for keeping your pup’s kibble along with a handy scoop for when it’s time to dish out dinner.

Nix Stains with Pantry Staples. Treat a variety of common clothing stains with products you have in your pantry. Egg yolk and luke warm water will remove a coffee stain. Just allow to set for a minute or two, then rinse. Get rid of blood stains, but immersing the fabric in very cold water, then sprinkling heavily with salt. Scrub with soap and rinse.

10.) Lemon as Cutting Board Cleaner. Use a fresh cut lemon to clean your wood and plastic cutting boards. Squeeze the lemon juice on your board and allow to sit for 20 minutes before rinsing. Voila!

11.) Use Baking Soda for Everything. Baking soda is the perfect household staple as it’s great for everything from cleaning to deodorizing to hygiene. Use it in the fridge to keep odors away, as a mouthwash rinse, to clean grills, and even as part of your laundry routine.

12.) Revive Old Paint Brushes. You can revive old paint brushes by soaking them in hot vinegar then washing with regular old soap and water. This removes old paint and softens the bristles.

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.

Household tips and lifehacks for organizing and living. Don't just work hard, work efficiently and effectively! Here's a collection of 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.
