Suet for the Birds
If I get a good sale price on peanut butter, then I can make my own for less or about the same price as store bought. I like to make it because I can add what I want and the birds seem to like it better homemade. I have bought cases of suet they did not care for, so I melted them down and added peanut butter and they loved it.
Baking Soda and Peroxide for Cleaning Grout
I have always used baking soda and peroxide in the spray bottle with some warm water and a scrub brush and it works wonders! Spray it and scrub it. It gets the grout very clean, the white will be very very white.
Cleaning a Keyboard with Isopropyl Alcohol
When I have guests over, I often get questioned on how I keep my keyboard so new and white. The truth is that my keyboard is NOT always clean. I clean my keyboard bi-weekly with Q-tips and isopropyl alcohol. Try this and your keyboard will be brand new again!
Reuse Paper Towels and Napkins
In our household, if you opt to use paper towels/napkins to dry your hands after washing then the paper towel/napkin should be used for at least another 2 times.
Shower Hooks To Hang a Bag On a Walker
My mom was having a hard time using her walker and trying to clean up the house. Using shower hooks, I hooked a bag on there so she could pick things up on her way through the house. Then she can sit down to sort it all out.
DIY Comb-top Dustpan
Attach a wide-toothed comb with hot glue to your dustpan in order to brush out all the debris and dust bunnies from your broom. This dollar hack is a copycat of a $25 dustpan I saw at the Home Goods store.
Cleaning Vinyl Siding and Gutters
I used Car Wash, purchased from Walmart, to clean the gutters, vinyl siding, heat and air conditioner and the awnings. It cut the dirt quickly and left a nice finish. I really like this product.
Magic Eraser for Grout
My bathroom floor grout needed cleaning. I was very impressed with the job the Magic Erasers did. It was quick and easy. I used the knock-offs and cut them into thirds to use as few as possible. Wet them just to moisten.
Support Hose for Leg Pain
I have always suffered from leg pain. I have had it so badly it has made me cry. I know a lot of people who use support hose for fluid retention and to prevent blood clots. I found if my legs are hurting, I can put on a pair of support hose and it helps my legs feel better.
Clean Your Earbuds with Alcohol
Use rubbing alcohol to clean your earbuds frequently. They can get dirty just by handling and can accumulate earwax.
