Most hand sanitizers have at least 70% alcohol content, which is enough to thin away stubborn ice on your frozen locks.
So whether you’re struggling to get your key in your car or you’re unable to unlock your front door, then you might want to pour a little hand sanitizer over the lock as it should help clear away the ice.
DIY Garage Wall Bumper
For those of you who are wondering why there are such tiny garages when you have a big car, you can now at least protect your car from getting scratches and dents whenever you park it inside.
Slice a pool noodle in half and mount it on the interior wall of your garage, making sure it cushions your bumper and car doors. Not only will your nerves thank you, but your insurance will too!
A Makeshift Grill Cleaner
This is not the old wives tale it's made out to be, we promise! Onions do a great job of absorbing messy spills, and your grubby grill is no exception. Simply slice an onion in half and stick a fork into it.
The underside of the onion will act as bristles and scrub away any grime left on your grill. You’ll be surprised to see just how much one humble onion can clean up!
Use A Potato Peeler
Potato peelers are pretty useful in the kitchen, but we bet you didn't know they are also really nifty in the home repair department!
If you find your screwdrivers don't fit a certain screw, then try using the tip of your vegetable peeler instead. This way, you can easily secure any screw you need while saving yourself a trip to the hardware store.
How to Treat Oil Spills
Garages are great for storing all kinds of things, but that also means they're more at risk of messes and spills. Oil spills are pretty common, whether it's from underneath your car or containers that have been stored in the garage.
Water won't mix well with oil, but we recommend you try covering it with cat litter. Cat litter does well to absorb oils and soak them up better than many other materials.
