There are many ways to rid yourself of clogs in bathroom sinks, kitchen sinks, showers, or anywhere else, but many of them can turn into long, messy jobs or force you to use expensive and dangerous chemicals. For clogs that are just organic material like hair, all you have to do is remove the cover of the drain, slip an unrolled zip tie inside, and hope you snag the clog.
It will be a little nauseating when you pull the gross, sudden mess out, but at least it means you won’t have to fill your house with powerful chemical smells or payout for a plumber.
The Look Without the Cost
Stainless steel appliances give a kitchen new life. They’re hardy, sturdy, and easy to clean. If you don’t have the cash for a full stainless-steel kitchen, you can still get the look with the help of metallic contact paper. Stick it over the appliances, and you’re on your way to a kitchen that you can be proud of.
Use it for your dishwasher, refrigerator, oven, stovetop, microwave, and even coffee maker or stand mixer. It’s not too expensive and gives you all the benefits of real stainless steel - beauty and ease. Who said D.I.Y can't be implemented on kitchen devices?
DIY Cutting Board Holder
Is there any homemade meal that doesn't require a cutting board? It's a kitchen necessary that everybody will end up using at least once or twice a day, but where do you put them when you aren't using them? Plenty of people keep them on the counter at all times, but there's another way.
Build a quick, unique and easy cutting board holder under your upper cabinet or in another place in your kitchen with just a few hooks and some hardware. The most complicated item you'll have to use is probably a power drill. You can handle that, right?
This is Technically a Non-Hack
When trimming your nails, you must be careful not to tear them off too much or cut them in the wrong place. There's not only your personal style to think about, but if you cut in the wrong place, you might damage yourself. A sour fingertip is not pleasant and takes ages to heal.
An easy way to make this odious chore easier is to do it right after showering or bathing – the moisture and heat soften your nails, making it easier to cut at the right place and get the shape you want. Less hacking, less pain, and an easier time doing a personal mani-pedi.
Don’t Forget a Thing
The garage is where work gets done. Fixing that broken taillight, repairing a towel rod, or fixing a grandchild’s toy doesn’t matter what needs to be done around the house. Chances are part of the job will take place in the garage.
Don’t forget about any of the things you have to do or what you need to buy next when you put up a wall or section of chalkboard paint – just like blackboards they used to have in schools; you can write on them or draw designs. It’s a great way to spruce up an area that is all function, no form, and keeps you working at optimum efficiency.
