The Most Useful Hacks to Use in Your Home

Sometimes housework and the constant need to clean and organize your house can make you miserable in your life. You may have hundreds of things on your bucket list every day, but life is tough and getting through the day is a challenge for everyone. However, just because you don’t have the time, it doesn’t mean you should burn yourself out every day. 

Whether you’re trying to get your house spotless in a couple of hours or want to get through with the entire week’s laundry in a day, there is always an easier way to tackle all your household chores. Yes, we are talking about the most useful hacks you can use in your home to save time and make your life easier every day. Here are some of the best ones: 

1. Use Coffee to Unclog a Drain

Whether you’re dealing with a tub that refuses to drain or a kitchen sink that is holding water, you don’t need to call and wait for the plumber. A helpful hack is to mix coffee grounds with boiling water and dish soap and pour it down the drain. It will unclog the drain within minutes. All you should do is mix soap with coffee grains and then add the mixture to the drain. Then pour boiling water over it, and the mixture will break up anything that is clogging the pipes. 

2. Polish Furniture With Essential Oils

If you want to give your furniture an excellent polish but don’t have any furniture polish, you don’t need to worry. You can use essential oils as they are excellent at freshening up wooden furniture. For example, try using lemon essential oil to polish dark wooden furniture, as it will effectively clean any spots and stains. You can also use tea tree oil for polishing furniture, and it acts as a bug deterrent. 

3. Use Toothpaste to Remove Scratches on Furniture

There are always small scratches on furniture that end up ruining the finish of your favorite furniture. However, you don’t need to spend hundreds of dollars to get your furniture refined, as you can use some toothpaste to get those small scratches and marks out. Use non-gel toothpaste, rub it in a circular motion on the scratch until it has buffed out, and then clean it with a damp towel. 

4. Remove Crayon from the Walls with a Hairdryer

If you have little kids who love drawing and coloring on the walls with their crayons, you would know how infuriating it is to get rid of the marks. However, you shouldn’t lose your cool, as there is an easy way to remove crayon marks from walls. All you need to do is pick up a hairdryer and heat the part of the wall they have used as their crayon canvas for a couple of seconds. The heat will soften the wax from the crayons, and you can wipe away the marks with a soft cloth.
