Accumulative plastic bags can really get in the way. You can bunch it up and stuff it in a drawer, but that is never very pleasing to the eyes. What can one do with all these excess bags? For starters, you can start recycling, or you can also stop taking store bags back with you. But if you already have them, there is a better solution.
If you have a bunch of bags that you don’t know where to put, you can take an old container of disinfecting wipes and place them in there. The pull and grab system is super convenient and you can store it wherever you like.
Get Rid of Sticky Residue With Oil
It's great to re-use old jars and bottles. Those things can be really useful, but what happens when you re-label it or at least scrape off the last one and all that old sticky residue is still there from the last label.
Just use cooking oil, it's as easy as...pie. Rub some oil on the stickiness with some cotton and just watch how easily it comes off when you wipe it. Now you can repurpose old jars and stick whatever you want on them, or just leaves them clean and use them as decorative pieces on your window sill. It's great in front of the light.
Use Ice Cubes Remove To Remove Candle Wax
It sounds like a stretch, but dripping candle wax can get anywhere, and it can certainly get into your furniture. If this ever happens to you, the first thing you should know is to never, under any circumstances, scrape it off your couch. That can only make things worse.
What you should do, however, is take a plastic bag, fill it up with some ice-cubes, and gently dab it over the wax. Let it sit for a few minutes until the wax has cooled and hardened. Once that has happened, you can easily peel it off any surface.
Command Hooks Help Keep Bin Liners in Place
Your old plastic bags, which we assume are now in a neat tissue box, can be used as bin liners. But the downside to doing that is that heavy items can cause the bag to go in the trash along with them. You can keep them in place by using Command hooks.
You stick the hooks on the outside of the trashcan on either side and put the bag’s loops around them. This will ensure that your liner stays in place and your hands can stay garbage-free!
Sharpen Your Knives Using Ceramic
Dull knives are a real no-no in the kitchen. They make it much harder to chop food and are actually more likely to cause injury than sharp knives. If you don’t own a knife sharpener or can’t find one when you need it, you can instead use a household item that you already have in your cupboard.
The bottom of a ceramic bowl or mug is a good surface to sharpen your blade on, but if you are going to try this hack at home, please do so with caution!
