My mom and I love easy home solutions and these are some of the great ones that she recently sent to me.
I had to share! Thanks Mom! 🙂
Do you have any great home remedies or ingenious ideas?
Please share in the comments below! As always…thanks for reading! ~Lisa
Add half a teaspoon of baking soda to the water when hard-boiling eggs
to make the shells incredibly easy to peel off.
To tell if eggs are fresh, immerse them in a bowl of water.
Fresh eggs will lie on the bottom, while stale eggs will float to the surface.
Keep brown sugar soft by storing with a couple of marshmallows.
Use a rubber band to rescue a stripped screw.
Use chalk to remove grease stains from clothes.
Simply rub white chalk on the affected area and wash as normal
– the chalk will absorb the grease and be washed away in the cycle.
Use rubber bands to help open a jar easily:
place one around the jar lid and another around the middle of the glass.
The rubber provides friction to prevent your hands from slipping.
To sharpen scissors, simply cut through sandpaper.
Prevent soil from escaping through the holes in the base
of flowerpots by lining with large coffee filters.
Use ice-cubes to lift out indentations made by furniture on your carpets.
To clean a wooden chopping board, sprinkle on a handful of Kosher salt
and rub with half a lemon.
Rinse with clean water and dry to ensure it is clean and germ-free.
