Do you ever feel like the chores around your home never seem to end?

How many times have you spent hours handling tricky cleanups and repairs to no fruition? If this is the case, then you are

not alone — we have compiled a list of home hacks that might assist you in resolving these issues.

Amongst these ideas, you might find solutions for the common problems. They will save you time and help you avoid getting annoyed.

1.   Use Kosher salt and lemons to clean your chopping board without leaving behind any chemicals.

2.   Vinegar and baking soda can be a great combination for cleaning your oven.

3.   Clean your blinds with a 50-50 vinegar and water mixture and an old sock.

4.   Use lemons to remove stains from faucets.

5.   Clean stainless steel appliances with cream of tartar.

6.   Remove candle wax from furniture with ice cubes – fill a any plastic bag with some ice cubes, place it over the wax. Allow it to sit for a few minutes. Once the wax has cooled and hardened, you can pick it up easily without ruining your furniture’s finish or fabric.

7.   Use cooking oil to get rid of sticky label residue – Rub the cooking oil onto the label’s sticky residue and wait for a few minutes. Then simply wipe off the cooking oil using a cotton pad.

8.   Use vinegar to remove odours from the microwave – Place a cup of vinegar in the microwave for five minutes and simply give the microwave a wipe down afterwards.

9. Limit the amount of water your WC flushing system utilises – To help reduce the cost, put any heavy item inside the tank. You may have to try a few items to obtain the right amount of water required to do the job. This will displace at least a few cups of water, helping you reduce the amount you use with every flush.

10. Fix a hole in a window screen with clear nail polish – If you have a minor hole in your screen but are not prepared to spend money to replace it entirely with a brand new screen, simply add a swipe of clear nail polish where there is a hole and it will be as good as new in seconds.

11. Use masking tape before nailing into plaster walls – Before you start nailing a hole in your plaster wall, place a small square of masking tape or painter’s tape over the area where you will be placing your nail (reverse side facing up/out). So when you nail into the plaster, it will prevent the plaster wall’s flakes or dust from littering your floor.

12. Make your house smell fresh again – Simply simmer a vanilla bean or a few drops of banana essence in two cups of water on the stove (adding some cloves of cinnamon if you want a spicier scent), this allows you to freshen the air in your house without putting your health in jeopardy.
