NUT REMEDY: Well this is just genius.
CLEAR YOUR PIPES: Forget expensive solutions, speed up a slow drain with this cheap and easy concoction. Pour some baking soda down your drain, followed by vinegar and hot water.
OH SO QUIET: Wrap a wide rubber band around doorknobs to soften a slamming door.
HOMES CHAFE TOO: Baby powder is like WD40 for your floors.
EASY CLEAN: Never, ever put a cast iron skillet in the dishwasher. Instead, pop some cooking oil and coarse salt in the pan and give it a good old exfoliation. Then wipe down with a kitchen towel. If some oil sticks around in the pan, no worries, it will just make your food taste even better next time.
SUNBATHE YOUR SHEETS: This is also a good idea for quilts etc that you don't want to wash often - UV light is a natural deodoriser and germ killer.
QUICK SOLUTION: Freshen the air without using spray.
HOMEMADE SCRUBBER: Easily clean a deck with a broom, a hose and some tape.
CREATE GRIP: Removing a screw that's been stripped and so basically is just a hole at the top is difficult, yes, but putting a rubber band between the screw and the screwdriver usually creates enough friction to loosen said screw.
DE-SCUFF: Yes, this actually works.
