10 Life Hacks To Use Around Your Home – If you own a home, you already know that there is a new or trendy idea for everything. When it comes to unique or DIY ideas, the possibilities are really endless. Add a personalized touch with a few hacks that can work for any sized home, and will also keep you organized along the way. Here are ten life hacks that are not only easy to do, but incredibly savvy…
A Hinged Painting
Put hinges (instead of hooks) on a painting to cover up a thermostat. Not only will you not have to worry about an unpleasant eye-sore in the middle of your wall, but you will be able to brighten up the room with a beautiful work of art.
Differentiate Your Keys
Use different color nail polish to differentiate the sets of keys on your keychains.
Glue a magnet to the bottom of your hammer. That way, you won’t have to fumble with nails in your mouth while you’re hammering things.
Command hooks are great for everything, but there is definitely one way you’ll find them more helpful. Place them on the back of your child’s highchair to hold bibs, that way you won’t have to search for one during meal times.
Stripped screws are not fun for anyone. Use a rubber band on top of the screw to help remove it from its place.
If you’ve recently rearranged your furniture, place ice cubes along the indentation in the carpet. It will quickly and easily remove the indentation, making the carpet look like new.
Squeegee the Carpet
Use a squeegee in a high-traffic area to get rid of the pet fur that has woven its way into the carpet. It’s more time consuming, but does a thorough job.
Repurpose Old Laundry Baskets
Use an old laundry basket as a stencil for painting polka dots on any wall. It’s an incredibly easy way to add some life to the walls of your child’s room.
Cut foam pool noodles in half in fix them to the walls in your garage. If it’s a tight squeeze, the noodle will cushion your car door so it doesn’t hit the wall.
Shoe Organizer in the Pantry
Use an over-the-door shoe organizer in your pantry to keep it organized. Bonus tip: put the healthy snacks closer to the bottom so your kids can reach them easier.
