Making changes to one’s house is a never-ending process. That’s why people are always looking for methods to make their kitchens more efficient, whether it’s through a simpler dishwashing method or by making better use of the space they already have. Those are the most important things we discovered this year and will remember for the rest of our lives.
These ingenious methods and suggestions are here to simplify your life. They’ll make it easier for you to go about your regular routine.
The following tricks and suggestions will aid in making your home more organized, providing you with additional storage space, and ending the turmoil that has been plaguing your home.
1. Garbage Disposal Deodorizer: Citrus Peels and Ice Cubes
Drop in some orange or lemon peels when the water is running at around half speed. Let the garbage disposal run for five seconds. The citric acid in the peels can break down hard waste and kill off odorous microorganisms. It will take the acid around 15 minutes to perform its job.
Start the water and the garbage disposal, and put some ice cubes in the sink. Within the disposer, the ice shards act like a sandblaster. Pour water into the dish until it is about halfway full. Then, remove the plug and run the garbage disposal.
2. Recycling Item
Choose reusable alternatives like reusable grocery bags, coffee mugs, and water bottles. Construct a compost tumbler to turn your compostable waste into garden fertilizer.
3. Crayon Smudges Can Be Removed from The Wall With A Hairdryer.
Nothing is lost if your white walls become your children’s personal crayon canvas. To remove crayon stains off a wall, just heat the area with a hairdryer for a few seconds to melt the wax, and then wipe it clean with a damp cloth.
4. Cord Organizer for The Toilet Paper Roll
The simple toilet paper roll may be used as a cord organizer, so you can finally put an end to those knotted messes. To make a label for your cord storage, you’ll need a toilet paper roll, some decorative tape, and a marker or pen. To keep your wires neat and tidy, just roll them up and fit them into the beautiful toilet paper roll storage solution. Don’t put up with the hassle of tangled wires any longer!
5. Use little furniture sliders to protect your floors from scratched flowerpots.
Brightening up your space with plants is easy to do, but hefty flower pots can be a nuisance due to their tendency to scratch tables and other surfaces.
Putting furniture sliders under each pot is an easy way to protect your floors and window sills from potential damage. The absence of scuff marks on your flower-adorned walls will provide you with much satisfaction.
6. Convection Microwave Oven Cleaner
Spills and baked-on food are no match for the microwave’s quick cleaning system. How? Read on! Half-fill a measuring or coffee cup with water and drop in a lemon slice. Wait a minute as the steam from the boiling water loosens the muck within the closed oven. Close the door for 10 minutes, then open it and clean it well.
7. Fix a broken window with nail polish.
Use clear nail polish to fix it. Put on a layer and let it dry. And so on, until the coats of transparent nail paint are even with the glass. Broken window screens can also be repaired with clear nail paint. Multiple thin coats are required to form a strong defense.
8. Invest in Good Nutrition
Growing at least some of your own food is a good idea if you aren’t already. Construct a planter or garden box. Another way to save money is to plan your meals for the week before you go grocery shopping. Encourage everyone in the household to participate in lagom and meal planning and preparation whenever possible.
9. Garage with Above-Cabinet Storage
Build a basic rack for storing heavy objects by gluing together 2″ PVC pipes and fittings. Heavy loads can be supported by bolting the straight pipe to the ceiling joists, and the rack can be stabilized by screwing the angled sections of the “wye” connectors into the cross bracing. Easy loading and unloading are achieved by the PVC’s flat surface.
10. Bobby Pin Organization Using Magnetic Strips
You’ll never have to rummage through the drawers in the bathroom looking for bobby pins again. Apply strips of magnetic tape to the interior of your bathroom cabinets and storage units to keep your medications organized. The strips are great for storing and organizing little items like bobby pins, but they can also be used for larger tools like tweezers and fingernail clippers.
11. Remove All Dust From The Exhaust Fan
You can use “canned air” to clean the air and turn on the blower to do the job. In order to get rid of the dust, just turn on the fan. The same principle applies to the return air grilles in your HVAC system. Allow the dust to be carried to the filter by the return airflow. Canned air may be found in the electrical supply section of most home improvement and hardware stores. Caution: the cans do not merely contain air, but also chemical propellants. Don’t give them to the kids to play with.
12. Chair with Bookcases
Make your own quiet reading nook that doubles as a space to stash things out of sight. An IKEA Expedit bookcase is combined with IKEA Capita legs, MDF, quilt batting, decorative fabric, a staple gun/staples, and foam to create this handy storage bench. It requires no sewing at all and can be assembled in a couple of hours with the help of this detailed guide.
