Repurposing items around your home is a fantastic way to save time and money. It’s also good for the environment if you are re-using or multi-purposing common items instead of buying and throwing out more products and containers. With a little knowledge and creativity, you can use ordinary things in unusual ways, making cleaning and tasks easier and your wallet fuller by not having to buy different products for each chore or task. You’ll also be contributing to a healthier environment by using natural things in place of potentially toxic chemicals. Here are 11 useful everyday hacks you can use in your home.
1) Re-use dryer sheets
Dryer sheets, once used in the laundry, are usually tossed. Saving your old dryer sheets is useful for several tasks around your home. Instead of spending money on dust cloths and products, use your old dryer sheets to dust furniture and surfaces in your home. You can also use them to remove water stains from mirrors and faucets and eliminate stain rings inside your toilet. If you have a Swiffer mop, rather than buying the pads, you can use dryer sheets. They will pick up the dust, dirt, and hair from your floors just as well for a fraction of the price. If you have deodorant stains on your clothing, a used dryer sheet will lift it off the fabric. You can also use dryer sheets to remove old nail polish. They will do the job better than cotton and will not leave any residue behind.
