Vinegar is arguably one of the most useful substances on the planet, at least when it comes to making life in your home easier, less expensive and safer! Why use nasty chemicals that cost an arm and a leg when you can use something that has been proven by time and countless mothers and grandmothers? I personally use vinegar for more things than I can count, and I have known about the wonderful liquid since before I can remember because my mom used it for literally everything. We are going to thoroughly run through some of the best little known vinegar life hacks that will make your life so much easier.

Is your drain clogged? Try pouring baking soda, followed by vinegar, down the drain and watch the magic. Something gooey sticking to your wall? Grab the vinegar and give it a squirt, then easily wipe it away.

Does your trash can smell like garbage, even when it’s empty? Soak a piece of bread in vinegar and leave it in the garbage can overnight, and voila, no more stank. It can also be used as an all-purpose cleaner: just fill up a spray bottle with one third vinegar and two thirds water.

Too many fruit flies? Fill a glass with apple cider vinegar, cover it with plastic wrap, and poke a few holes. The flies enter, but cannot escape. It can even be used to straighten clothes if an iron isn’t available. A few other uses include keeping cats off the furniture, helping cut flowers stay fresh longer, getting tough stains out of pots and pans and cleaning glasses for a smudge-free sheen. Let us know what you think in the comments.

Hopefully you find these helpful tips and tricks over the next few weeks and months.

When it comes to cleaning just about everyone loves learning new simple ways to get the same old things done. It can be fun and interesting to discover what nifty and quick solutions people have come up with to solve common problems. This video, from YouTube channel Outdoors and Gear Review highlights a helpful trick for dealing with a common and difficult problem you’re likely to encounter when tidying and cleaning your bathroom up; hard water deposits and stains.

Hard water can be a real pain in the neck and the nasty looking stains and blemishes that it leaves behind on bathroom and kitchen surfaces can be extremely hard to fully remove.  The ugly spots and stains are caused by water that contains large amounts of minerals such as limestone, calcium, and magnesium.

These metals and minerals are naturally occurring, most often in areas with low water tables and mountainous regions, and water that contains them is perfectly safe to use and drink. The biggest downside to it is the crusty, whitish colored mineral deposits and stubborn stains it leaves behind. Over time these gradually build up on stuff, especially faucets and shower heads.

Many people struggle to remove these stains and often think that they need strong, harsh chemical cleaners to get rid of them effectively. However, there’s a better and more affordable way to go about cleaning a shower head with crusted on mineral build up. All you need is apple cider vinegar, a Ziploc bag, and a rubber band.

Simply pour some apple cider vinegar into the plastic bag and place it over and on the shower head. Use a rubber band to secure it in place and then leave it on overnight. Remove the baggy the following day, wipe the shower head clean, and it should be restored to its former glory!

Check out the video for more information and to see just how shiny and spotless looking it turns out. This may be the fastest, easiest, and most natural way to clean hard water stains. It requires minimal effort or exertion on your part so try it the next time you’re stuck cleaning the house!

Check out These 5 Awesome Vaseline Life Hacks Everyone Should Know:

image via – facebook.com

While you may only think of Vaseline as an integral part of your grandmother’s home remedies and go to solutions, it actually really is a product that can seemingly do it all. People use the petroleum based, gooey, slippery substance for all sorts of things. There are countless household and beauty tricks that involve it, whether it’s loosening stuff up or smearing some on minor cuts and burns to help them heal. This article and video focuses on several beauty related uses for the product that may prove useful and come in handy, and will definitely save you time and money.

If you love to paint your nails then you likely have encountered polish bottles with their tops stuck on them. It takes almost superhuman strength to loosen and get them them of when they dry on and stick like that. To prevent this, take a cotton swab and dab some Vaseline around the base of the bottle opening and on the threads where the cap twists on, now it won’t stick the next time you go to open it.

Another nail polish trick is to coat the skin around your nails with some Vaseline before painting them. This will keep the polish from sticking to your skin, cut down on the clean up, and make your paint job look all the more professional.

If you have rough, dry skin on your feet rub a little Vaseline on them before you go to bed. Slather some all over your feet, then put on a pair of socks, and wake up to smooth soft skin. For those of us with sensitive ears that act up and become sore when wearing earrings, try rubbing Vaseline on the metal stud part that goes through your ear.

By coats the earring it helps them slide through and lessens any negative reaction or sensitivity you may have. If the scent of your perfume disappears way too quickly take some Vaseline, apply a thin coat to the area where you plan to spritz it on, then spray the perfume over that area. This works great at holding the fragrance and makes it last much more longer, plus it won’t alter the perfume’s scent.

If you haven’t already, toss a small jar of the wonder product in your bag so it’s always on hand close by. Use it to touch up makeup, soften rough skin, loosen stuck tops and lids, or as a lip gloss/chap-stick stand in when you inevitably lose or misplace them.

Besides being versatile, it’s also widely available and can be found in practically any pharmacy, health, convenience or grocery store around the world. Best of all, Vaseline is relatively cheap and costs only a few dollars, with a jar of it easily lasting a year or two before running out. With Vaseline, the possibilities may just be endless!

The Next Batch of Life Hacks are some incredibly useful winter life hacks that will make your life so much easier this winter:

image via : shutterstock.com

Along with the cold weather, there are a number of special challenges that winter brings along with it, and we all have to just deal with them! Dry skin, chapped lips, stuffy noses, darkness at 4PM, winter storms, the list goes on and on. One of the most annoying things by far is clearing walkways and driveways of snow and ice. The same goes for cars, but while you can often drive through a little bit of snow, you can’t with an ice-covered windshield. Not only is it illegal to drive with an obstructed view, it’s also insanely dumb and extremely dangerous!

While defrosting the car and scraping ice off the windshield seems like a necessary evil, it doesn’t have to be. You really don’t need to wake up extra early just to stumble around in the freezing cold darkness so that you can drive to work. Instead, you can save yourself some time and energy by doing the following:

In a spray bottle container mix together 2 parts isopropyl alcohol with 1 part water and then add in 1 tablespoon of liquid dish soap. Shake it up, spray it directly onto an icy windshield, and watch the ice literally melt away right before your very eyes!

This rubbing alcohol spray is the perfect thing to have on hand for freezing cold mornings and icy windshields. You can leave the bottle in your car and it won’t even freeze, unless it gets well under zero. That’s because the freezing point of isopropyl alcohol is -128.2 degrees Fahrenheit, so when you spray it on the ice, it doesn’t freeze up. Instead, it helps to melt the ice and keeps it from re-freezing. Since all you have to do is mist it on, it’s by far the quickest and easiest way to clear a windshield that’s coated with a thick layer of ice.

Don’t forget to check out the video to see exactly how well this works in action and be sure to pass it along to those who could use the smart tip. If it can make someone’s life a little bit easier this winter, then it’s worth it!

This is super helpful for those rough winter months.

Winter is tough. Along with the cold, dry weather comes a number of challenges that we all have to deal with. Cars need to be cleared of snow and ice and the same goes for walkways and driveways. Traveling often becomes way more difficult than usual and to top it off our health also takes a tumble for the worse.

Many of us are plagued by dry itchy skin, sore chapped lips, and stuffy noses that just won’t go away. These things quickly add up and can make it seem like winter is dragging on forever, especially when problems pop up outside on top of the health issues we may be facing.

Which is why these simple winter hacks, covered by the Millennial Moms YouTube channel, are perfect for right now. The video features some of the most clever ways to solve common winter woes and it might offer a solution to a problem you’re currently dealing with. These are some of the best hacks shown in the clip, but there are a total of fifteen, so be sure to check it out for all of the rest.

1) Winterize Boots- This trick does the job to keep feet warm and dry inside of boots that aren’t waterproof. After putting on your socks take two large plastic Ziploc bags and stick a foot in each. Grab a couple of rubber bands and slide them on over the bag to secure it in place and seal the top off around your leg. Pull on your boots and say goodbye to cold, wet feet.

2) Prevent Static Build Up In Hair- Pull a dryer sheet on over the bristles of your hair brush so that they poke through. Brush your hair as normal to eliminate the static, plus it’ll smell clean and great.

3) DIY Boot Inserts- Maintain the shape of tall boots by cutting a foam pool noodle into thirds or fourths, then stick a piece in each boot and they’ll stay upright, making them easier to organize and wear later on.

4) Stop Wipers From Freezing to a Car Windshield- Take an old pair of long cotton socks and slide them over each wiper, puling it down as far as it can go or reaches. This will prevent wipers from freezing and/or sticking to the windshield, and makes life all the more easier.

5) Organize Winter Gear- Hats, scarves, gloves, mittens, hand warmers, neck warmers and all other winter accessories can be neatly stored in one accessible place with a shoe organizer. Hang it over a door and never search for lost gloves again.

6) Windshield Treatment- This one is the best! A combination of vinegar and water works wonders at preventing frost and ice from building up on car windshields and windows. Mix the two liquids up in a spray bottle, spritz it on car windows, then wipe off with a soft cloth.

7) Boot Tray- Keep floors safe, clean, and dry by making your own boot tray. This one is much more appealing than commercially available ones and works even better. Fill a large metal cookie sheet with a layer of decorative rocks and put it near the door so that when people enter they can immediately place wet boots on the rocks. The water will drip through the rocks to the bottom and soon evaporate. Don’t forget to check out the rest of the tips covered in the clip and be sure to pass it along to those who could use these smart hacks to make their own lives easier.

These are just really helpful.

Apparently THIS Is The Way To Cut Onions Without Crying.

Chopping onions is not a pleasant experience. In fact, it easily rates among the top most awful food prep jobs you may ever have to do in the kitchen. Lots of onions are very strong and some can be so potent they overpower you, making your eyes burn and start to water. With the combination of blurry eyes and a sharp knife your cozy night in making a simple homemade dinner can quickly turn into a kitchen nightmare…and give you a real reason to cry..

While the stinging sensation is extremely uncomfortable, it’s also completely avoidable. In the accompanying video YouTube’s Jack Scalfani of the ‘Cooking With Jack Show’ demonstrates a simple trick to cutting an onion without crying. The secret is to remove the bulb part first before you start slicing and dicing because it contains all of the gases that make our eyes burn and water. It’s important that you don’t cut into this bulb portion so do your best to remove it completely in-tact. Check the clip out to see exactly how it’s done and try it out!

To start, place the onion root-side up on the chopping board so that you’re looking right down at the scraggly roots. Take a paring knife and slowly insert it down into the root end about half an inch or so out from the center. Move it all the way around the root base in a circle and cut on a slight angle so that you end up with a cone-shaped piece. When you’re done cutting out the circle you should be able to easily remove the bulb and can discard it. At this point you can peel the dry, papery brown layers of skin off the onion and cut it up as you normally would.

This onion cutting method is effective and easy to do. Plus, it’s guaranteed to make life a little more easy and comfortable, so the next time you find yourself face to face with an onion that needs chopping, remember and try it out. You won’t shed a single tear!

Don’t Throw These Out. These Are 6 Awesome Uses For Silica Gel Packets.

image via – shutterstock.com

Silica gel packets come in many of the packages, boxes, and things that we order online or buy from the store. Shoes and purses often have a packet tossed in them and even some bagged foods, like jerky, come with a pack of the little beads. They serve a very important purpose and are there to adsorb excess moisture from their surroundings, thus keeping the goods they’re packaged with dry and damage free. If you thought you read part of the previous sentence incorrectly, you didn’t, because adsorbs is the proper word for what silica gel does.

It’s a desiccant, which means that it adsorbs and collects moisture on it’s surface, rather than absorbing it into itself as a towel or sponge would do. Silica’s porous surface works to pull in moisture because water molecules have a lot of places to grab onto and just one of the beads can hold almost half its weight in water, that’s a lot!

We often toss silica packets out after we receive them with whatever they came with, but you should start saving them instead because they have a lot of great alternative uses. This video covers a bunch of the ways silica packets can make life easier and below are some of the best uses for them.

1) Keep car windows fog free- fog and moisture build up on car windows is dangerous and annoying, to diminish and prevent it simply place a few silica gel packets around your car and near the front and rear windows to keep fog from building up.

2) Prolong the life of expensive razors- leaving razors near or in the bathroom and shower can greatly diminish how long they last by dulling the blades. Make them last longer by wiping off the razor and storing it in a container with 4-5 silica packets.

3) Save a water damaged phone- if you ever drop your cell phone in water or it somehow manages to get wet, try this; remove the battery and memory card from the phone then place it overnight in a container filled with silica packets.

4) Safe keep old photos- preserve your memories and keep them dry by tossing a few packets of silica gel in the box they’re stored in.

5) Keep pet food fresh- pet food seems to always get kind of mushy and soggy when its kept in the bag it came in. To avoid this, store food in a separate container and tape silica packets to the underside of the lid, your pets will thank you!

6) Prevent rust- tools often take a beating and many end up covered in rust. If you toss a few silica gel packs in your tool box it helps keep them in good, rust-free condition and makes them last longer.

At First I Was Confused When He Poked A Hole Into This Bottle Cap. But When He’s Done Just Brilliant!

If you are a person who is conscious about reusing items through recycling or composting, this video that you are about to watch below is for you.  Although there are many health reasons not to refill plastic water bottles for drinking, they can be reused or or “repurposed” in order to conserve both energy and money.

The five hacks presented are so clever and useful.  By cutting off the top of a water bottle he illustrates how to turn it into a funnel to be used for any number of purposes, indoors and outdoors.  He then shows how cutting off the bottom of a bottle can be used to make a measuring spoon.

The third hack is my personal favorite.  By using toothpicks and a lighter, he shows how to turn the top of the water bottle into a pointed nozzle, which when placed on the bottle acts a fantastic dispenser for so many liquids around your home.  Then watch how he makes a measuring cup, and last but not least, a laminated glass jar.

He Cracks 12 Eggs Into This Old Ice Tray. The Reason? I Had No Idea!

image via – youtube.com

You know that sinking feeling you get when you reach for a bottle of milk or carton of eggs in the refrigerator, only to find out that it’s expired? It’s a waste of money when that happens and it can easily throw off your plans for a nice cup of coffee or dinner.

Dairy products in general can be expensive so when they’re on sale it’s wise to stock up on your favorites. While many dairy items spoil and go bad not long after being purchased or opened, there is a way to store and preserve them for later use.

YouTube favorite HouseholdHacker explains it all and that by freezing dairy products you can extend their shelf life. This video lays out the details and shows how to go about doing exactly that. Here’s a breakdown of what works best for the most common dairy items.

First off, eggs can be frozen by cracking one egg into each individual ice cube slot in an ice tray. After they completely freeze simply pop them out of the tray and store in a freezer bag. Now you have them on hand for when a recipe calls for only one egg!

Next is milk, which can only be frozen for about 1-2 months and coffee creamer for longer, up to 6 months. Just stick the unopened and fully sealed cartons in the refrigerator right after you buy them. Once you remove it from the freezer thaw the milk in the refrigerator for a day or two and be sure to shake it up well before using because it will definitely have separated.

Cheese can be a bit more difficult to freeze because the texture can be affected, and not in a good way. While most cheese is freezable, Parmesan works the best, and shredded cheese is the way to go because blocks tend to get all dry and crumbly. Shredded cheese can be stored for up to 2-3 months and thawed out in the refrigerator before using, that should help retain its original texture.

Salted butter can last the longest, for 6-8 months if wrapped well, but unsalted butter only lasts for one month. Also, make sure there is nothing in the freezer with a strong smell or pungent odor because you risk having the butter pick it up and it’ll end up tasting like that.

Greek yogurt freezes well for a couple of months, but make sure to stir it well after thawing. A great way to enjoy frozen yogurt is to make yogurt pops. Simply stick a popsicle stick in the container top before freezing or pour the yogurt in an ice cube tray and use them in smoothies.

Full fat cream cheese can be frozen but results vary when thawed as to texture depending on the brand you buy. Once it has been thawed always make sure to use it right away in dips, sauces, or baked dishes.

Now you don’t have to see any of your dairy products spoil ever again. Hopefully these tips and information will help you in the future!

He Quickly Wraps A Belt Around The Hinge Of The Door. The Reason Could Actually Save Your Life!

image via – youtube.com

It may seem incomprehensible that the dangers of terroristic attacks in the office place, such as what happened in San Bernardino, California at a holiday party, may become part of our “new normal”.  Heinous attacks like this have occurred in our schools and movie theaters as well.

Our heightened fear of the unexpected terrorist attack is not unrealistic.  As we have always participated in fire drills as a precautionary measure, it seems both logical and prudent, to have exercises to train people how to best survive a terrorist attack domestically.

As many of us do not like the idea of people being armed in the workplace or schools, what tips or tricks can be taught and practiced to help train ordinary citizens going about their day, to defend themselves?  In the video you are about to watch below, safety expert, Bill Stanton, illustrates several ways to protect yourself in the workplace.

He shows us how to place a belt on a door hinge to prevent the door from opening, in addition to using barricades and other utensils commonly found that will help to stop the attack. The point he makes is that you can’t stay frozen and passive under such circumstances.

Acting as a group to fight off the attack may very well mean the difference between life and death.  People have good reason to be scared, in the face of the multiple mass shootings that we awake to on a regular basis.  Fear is paralyzing; it is far better to be empowered with actions that can be taken, to give people a fighting chance, if the unthinkable should occur.
