Having your car professionally detailed can easily end up being quite expensive.  While it’s always nice to have a sparkling clean car, it’s even better when you can have it without spending a small fortune.  Thankfully there are all sorts of cheap ways to clean your car with common items that you probably already have around the house. They can do the job just as well, if not even better, than what professional cleaners use.

Below are just a few of the handy tricks covered in the accompanying video so be sure to check it out for even more:

Clean your headlights with toothpaste.  Use regular toothpaste, not the gel type, to polish up car headlight lenses by rubbing it on evenly with a cloth.  Move in quick circular motions to then buff it off and you should notice the grime and fogginess disappear.

Remove stubborn old bumper stickers cleanly and completely with WD-40.  Simply spray the sticker with WD-40 and let it sit for a while, the sticker will absorb it, then you can peel it right off. 

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.

I’ve Used Tape Measures A Million Times But I Never Knew What This Little Hole Was Used For!

Even if you are not the handiest person around, you definitely have used a tape measure in many different circumstances.  There are things about a tape measure that you may have wondered about, but never thought to ask.

Even if you haven’t wondered about these characteristics of a tape measure, the tricks that you are about to see in the video below, are well worth your time. Leah, of “See Jane Drill”, offers some invaluable tricks that the tape measure is capable of, that I, for one, am thankful to learn about.

When I have been alone doing measuring for various things, I have found it difficult to handle the tape measure myself.  Leah’s tutorial will show you four invaluable tricks when using a tape measure alone.

She points out that all tape measures have these four features that will make your life easier.  The first is the little slot in the middle of the metal end of the tape…it turns out that it is a “nail or screw grab”!

To see how this works, as well as the ridges at the bottom of that little metal piece and two other features, watch this incredibly illuminating footage.

Get ready for the video tutorial below and you will never look at a tape measure the same way again!

THIS Is The Trick To Buying Plane Tickets At a Certain Time and Day For The Cheapest Price Ever!

Purchasing airline tickets is one the more confusing and exasperating things we do in life. There are so many options to work through, from the routes and times to the costs and different airlines. We naturally look for the best deals that work in our favor and nothing feels better than when you snag a ticket to your destination that’s incredibly cheap and affordable.

After all, the more you save on getting there and plane tickets, the more you can save or spend elsewhere. There are a few simple factors that can play a major role in influencing whether or not you book a deal, and the day that you purchase tickets matters a lot.

A recent study looked back at the cost of all tickets sold worldwide over the past year and found some interesting price differentials. According to the data, it turns out that Friday is the worst day of the week to purchase an airline ticket because that’s when they are the most expensive.

In fact, the average cost for tickets sold on a Friday are 13% higher than those sold just two days later on Sunday. The main reason given for this difference is that leisure travelers book more discount trips on weekends. Also, towards the end of the work week business travelers pay for the higher fares, and many of the sales and deals that airlines run throughout the week expire by Friday.

Better days on which to purchase airline tickets are Saturdays, Sundays, and Tuesdays. The study found that Tuesdays are when prices drop to the lowest cost, which on average are 3% less than Friday prices. Buying earlier, rather than last minute, always helps to keep costs low and getting alerts for sales and exclusives can pay off in the end.

Ticket prices are constantly being adjusted up and down, so if you spot a good deal, grab it before it changes and goes back up. Hopefully this information will come in handy and help you snag a bargain the next time you have to book a flight. Share this information with friends and family and help pass on the potential savings.

He Told His Dog To ‘Play Dead’. But What He Proceeds To Do Made Me Spit My Drink Out!

image via – youtube.com

There have been countless videos of animals pretending to play dead out there on the internet. Some do it to avoid taking a bath and, more commonly, others do it for treats. Whatever the reason it is almost always adorable to see and enjoyable for everyone involved. The dog gets to please its human and work for a reward while people seeing it get to smile.

A beautiful German Shepherd named Sam performs one flawless performance of this age old trick and it may be the best version out there!  Sam’s rendition of playing dead is on par with what a professional canine actor would be expected to deliver. Her owner asks if she wants a treat and naturally she perks up with anticipation and goes towards him.

He tells her to stay and she obliges by sitting on her hind quarters with her two front paws dangling in the air, looking absolutely loveable. Then he backs up a few steps and says “BANG!” Right on cue Sam lets out a yelp as if she really has been shot and turns dramatically around in mock distress while going down on the floor.

She rolls over onto her back and puts all four paws up in the air, then looks proudly over at the camera. She has the trick down to an art and the yelp she adds is what places her above the competition. The trick is not done in vain as the owner then gives her a treat for doing such an excellent job. This puppy needs a role where she can showcase her acting skills and good-looking face.

She definitely has the most original and dramatic version of the playing dead trick I have ever seen!

The End Of Your Tape Measure Has Features You’ve Probably Never Heard Of. I’m So Glad I Learned THIS

Most people think that a tape measure is for measuring things. They are right, of course, but there is more to a tape measure than first meets the eye. There are specific features built in to the indispensible tool that make it much more effective and efficient, but only if one knows what they are and how to use them. Many of the features are to be found at the terminal end of the tape itself, ingeniously built in to the metal tab that holds it in place on an edge or against a surface.

Upon close inspection, one will notice a notch in the face of the tab. If, like many people, you find yourself trying to measure something without someone to hold the end still, only to have the end slip off until your temper begins to slip with it, you can place the head of a nail or screw in the slot and it will hold the tape securely from any angle.

The second feature is the serrated edge of the tab. It can be used in lieu of a pencil to mark the measurement, and it will always be accurate because it is built in to the tape itself.

You might have noticed that the tab wiggles quite a bit. You may have assumed that you have a faulty tape measure, but they all have this feature. If you look closely at the markings of the first inch, you will see that it is 1/16 inch short.

When you hook the tape to an outside edge, the tape pulls away from the tab by 1/16 inch. Conversely, when you place the tape on an inside edge, the 1/16 inch thick tab itself makes up the missing distance. There is a final, crucial design feature that is even more helpful and rarely known, but you’ll have to watch to the end of the video to find out what it is!
