When we face issues at home, we always say “I’ll buy something to fix this later.”
However, rather than spending money, do you know you can always use things that we already have at home to solve all the issues?
Well, here are some secret home hacks that can save your time and wallet.
Stop Night Time Coughing
You know what they say: When you’re experiencing symptoms of an illness, don’t go for the symptoms, go for the root. Or in this case, the foot.
Rub Vicks VapoRub generously on the bottom of your feet and cover them with socks. This will stop the coughing magically in five minutes. Some people also rub it on their backs.
Relieve Sore Feet
If you have sore, achy feet, fill a plastic bottle with water to about three-quarters full. Freeze the bottle and roll it over the bottom of your feet to reduce inflammation.
Remove Chewing Gum on T-shirt
Throw the T-shirt into the freezer for about an hour. It should be easy to remove the gum thereafter. Otherwise, you can also rub an ice cube on the gum until it finally comes off.
To Whiten Clothes
Soak the clothes in hot water and a slice of lemon for ten minutes. Other ingredients you can also try are baking soda and vinegar.
Remove Ink from Clothes
Did you know that toothpaste has multiple functions—besides just cleaning your teeth?
It can also remove stubborn ink stains by just simply covering the ink spot with toothpaste and let it dry completely. Afterwards, wash it and you will see the magic.
Get Rid of Mice or Rats
Sprinkle black pepper in spots you find or mice or rats. They will run away from the smell, and hopefully away from your house, too.
Ants hate the smell of cucumber. Put the skin of cucumber at spots where there are ants or at an ant hole, and they’ll go away…hopefully to your neighbour’s house instead.
Prevent Water from Over-boiling
To prevent water from over-boiling, place a wooden spoon across the top of the pot. Now, this works while cooking Maggi Mee, too!
Shrink a Pimple Quickly
To shrink a pimple quickly, dab it with Listerine. The alcohol will dry out the people, causing it to shrink. Some people dab with toothpaste as well.
To reduce the puffiness of your eyes after a late night, dip cotton balls in cold milk and place them on your eyes after 15 minutes. Wash the milk off your eyes afterwards.
There’s another solution for this: sleep early.
