A slippery rug is bad and can lead to injury, but the non-slip mats can be expensive, and we don’t want to spend loads of dollars on something that had a home hack solution. So what are we to do? You can use caulk instead! Add a few lines of the caulk to the bottom of your favorite rug, and wait for it to dry.
Once finished, flip it over, and you will never have to worry about the rug moving out of place again. Economical and efficient! Now no one will be able to excuse walking into the house with muddy boots.
We all love the smell of freshly baked cookies in our house, but rarely do we have time actually to bake the cookies. If you want a similar sensation without the baking, try baking vanilla instead. All you have to do is simmer a vanilla bean in water for 10 mins and place that solution in a spray bottle.
Then perfume your house with the mixture, and you will be smelling freshly baked cookies without needing to bake anything. We love the smell, we love the taste, however, this might make us actually bake more frequently, so you can do the same with bringing orange peel to a boil, which will distribute an addictive citrus smell.
Longing to Shear
Getting to the top branch of your tree can be a hassle, but it doesn’t have to be next time. Instead of getting your ladder and wondering if the earth beneath you is stable enough, slip some long PVC pipes onto the handle and tape them in place.
This will extend your reach and cut those branches without ever worrying about falling off the ladder again. Have fun trimming! Say goodbye to fearful moments and wobbly ladders and stumbling tools. It's time to embrace coyness and wonderful home hacks to share with your loved ones.
Plant Pot Sliders
A garden is a spot of a haven for some of us; the green bushes and tall trees are what can make one's day. They color our domestic landscape in all shades of green, plants are essential for the oxygen that we breathe, but the pots they come in can leave scratches on our floors. We don’t want to get rid of the plant, but we need a solution for the scratches.
If this problem affects you, grab some furniture sliders and place them under your pots. This will allow them to slide easily and remove any chance of them scratching your floors. This way, we can have our plants and keep our apartment deposits too.
This Hack May Go Over Your Head
There never seems to be enough space to store everything in our garage. Bring out that spare PVC pipe you have laying around and make a simple rack from it. You can even bolt it to the ceiling of your garage, and voila! Extra space immediately! Plus, the smooth surface makes getting anything you put up there so easy.
This great hack can be used in so many different ways. Large books can be stored on this handmade shelf, and if you own your own kindergarten and have many kids and many plays in many colors, just look at this photo. Wonderful.
