5 Tips and Tricks!


5 Great ways to use something that is in most households for unconventional uses! 


1) Leather shoes are dull but no shoe polish in the home?  Wipe off the dirt with a dry cloth and then take a clean cloth with a drop of vegetable oil and polish the leather! 

2) Painting but ran out of painters tape and need to cover your door knobs?  Wrap aluminum foil around the door knob to prevent paint from going on it! Wait until paint is dry then remove it!

3) Shoveling snow but it keeps building up on the shovel and hard to get off?  Before shoveling spray both sides of the shovel with cooking spray! Snow will slide right off! 

4)Tired of purses laying around on the bottom of the closet with your shoes?  Use shower hooks in the closet on the rod to hang up all your purses. Keeps your closet more organized and easier to find what purse you wish to use!

5)No peanuts to pack your parcel? Use plain air-popped popcorn instead! You can protect a parcel with less then half the cost to buy packing peanuts! (Do not use to send to different countries. Keep local) 


There you have it 5 great tips!

    Some good ideas, but one should be careful with the popcorn idea. Depending on where you are shipping, it could be considered exporting of food.
