Watch how easily the grease and grime gets removed with a minimal amount of elbow grease.  This solution is such a great find, that does the job without having to work hard or inhale dangerous chemicals!

Remove pet fur from carpets and seats with a spray bottle, water, and a squeegee.  Spray the water on the seat and then move the squeegee over the area, it will gather and lift up the hair so you can easily pick it up.

Clean air vents with small foam brushes.  They can easily fit in even the smallest vents and pick up all the dirt and dust inside them.  

Use coffee filters to dust your car dashboard.  Unlike cloth towels and paper towels, coffee filters won’t leave behind lint or just push dust around.  Instead they work great at picking up dust and you can toss a few in the glove compartment for whenever you might need one to freshen up the dash.

Get streak free windows by cleaning them with newspaper.  It’s the cloths and paper towels that leave streaks when you clean your windows so don’t even bother using them.  Instead, spray down the window with cleaner and wipe it off with a piece of newspaper as you normally would. 

Get rid of stubborn, lingering odors by sprinkling baking soda on car seats and carpets.  Let it sit for a couple of hours before vacuuming it up. The baking soda should absorb the foul odors, leaving your car smelling fresh and clean.

The Way This Guy Cleans His Pots Is Totally Brilliant. How Did I Not Know About This Earlier?

Got dirty dishes? Clean them up! Forget the times when you scrubbed and washed dirty pots and pans that were caked with crusty cooked on food and grease. The stubborn and hard to clean messes won’t drive you insane anymore. YouTube’s DaveHax shows us how to easily clean dirty, old, tarnished copper pots and pans with a simple and effective method. Plus, it’s cheap and can be done with just two items that you may already have on hand or can pick up at the store for only a few dollars!

The two magic ingredients to this scrub are white wine vinegar and table salt. Begin by placing a dirty pan upside down in the sink and coat it with salt. Pour some white wine vinegar over it, but try not to wash off the salt, and if you do wash off too much just add more salt. Allow it to sit for at least 15-20 seconds and you should see it already starting to work, breaking through the dirtiness, and brighter cleaner spots will begin to appear.

Next, pour some vinegar on a scrubbing sponge and scour the pot all around the bottom and sides. In a few seconds the grimy tarnish will rub off. If you need to add more salt and vinegar, go right ahead, and keep scrubbing until it is completely clean. When it looks like new again you can rinse with water and be done!

Apparently You Should Never Use A Q-Tip To Clean Your Ear Holes. Use THIS Instead!

image via –

People tend to view earwax in a negative light and see it as a sign of uncleanliness because it looks gross. It’s natural to automatically assume that earwax is nasty, after all it’s a bodily fluid that comes out of ears, there’s nothing appealing about it whatsoever.

That’s why people stick all sorts of cleaning solutions, Q-tips, candles, even automatic ear cleaner gadgets into their ears in vain attempts to remove the offensive substance. If you’re guilty of doing any of the aforementioned things you should re-think your ear-care routine because they can easily injure or damage sensitive inner ears.

When anything is stuck into an ear it simply makes them dirtier and increases the odds of developing an ear infection or worse. The most common way people try to clean their ears is with Q-tips but this is wrong, ineffective, and pushes wax further into the ear canal, thereby increasing the potential for build up and blockage. Whatever you do, don’t use Q-tips!

First and foremost, the bad reputation earwax has developed is without merit and based on false information. The yellowish waxy substance is produced naturally by our body and is beneficial to our health in several ways.

It helps protect inner ears from all sorts of nasty stuff like infections, dust, dirt, bacteria and other germs that would otherwise enter them. Furthermore, the wax forms a protective barrier on the surface of the delicate skin in ear canals which prevents it from becoming irritated when water gets inside.

It also moisturizes and keeps that skin from becoming dry, flaky, and itchy. Earwax is produced by tiny hair follicles that line the ear canal. It normally makes its way out of ear openings naturally on its own, but sometimes wax can build up and cause blockage problems.

If you feel that there is a blockage due to wax build up in your ear you can try one of the natural remedies below or see a doctor if the issue is more serious. Please see the video for more information on the topic and keep reading for at home remedies you can try to safely remove earwax.

1) Saline Solution- Dissolve 1 tsp of salt in ½ cup of water. Soak a cotton ball in the solution, tilt your head to the side, and allow a couple of drops to fall into your ear. Let the saline work to soften the wax and keep your head to the side for a few minutes before tilting it in the other direction to drain it.

2) Olive Oil- Carefully drip 2-3 drops of olive oil into your ear before going to bed at night and try to sleep on the opposite side. Repeat this process for 3-4 consecutive nights. It helps to softens earwax so that it naturally works its way out of the ear canal on its own.

3) Paraffin Oil- Over a candle flame heat 2-3 tablespoons of paraffin oil so that it’s warm but not hot. Lie still on your side and place a few drops in your ear, wait several minutes, then rinse with warm water. Repeat this for 3 days to help completely dissolve buildups.

4) Vinegar and Alcohol Solution- Mix equal parts white vinegar and rubbing alcohol, dip a cotton ball in the solution and place several drops in your ear. Wait a few minutes then drain.

5) Hydrogen Peroxide- Mix equal parts water with 3% hydrogen peroxide and drip a few drops in your ear before gently shake your head to work it through the canal. Leave in for a few minutes then tilt your head to the side and drain it out.
