8 TRADITIONAL BUT GREAT HOUSEHOLD TIPS…

Some of the old ones can be the best ones…

1. To keep your fresh vegetables for longer soak in fresh, cold water for 10 minutes then store in a veggie box in the fridge. It will keep them fresh for over a week.

2. If you’ve run out of WD40 try using furniture polish instead.

3. Wear a pair of sunglasses when chopping onions to avoid your eyes running.

4. To get rid of unwanted smells from your toilet, fill a small tub with vinegar and place it somewhere discreet like behind the u-bend. The air will be fresh in no time.

5. Put garden solar lights on a windowsill and use them as a night light without using the electric.

6. To remove a scratch from a table, crack open a walnut and rub it along the scratch . Walnuts contain a natural resin which will conceal the scratch.

7. To make your own room spray, add ten drops of your favourite essential oil to a plant spray filled with seven tablespoons of warm water. One tablespoon of vodka or pure alcohol as this acts as a preservative.

8.Some dishwasher powders can be very expensive so buy a cheaper one and add a few tablespoons of vinegar to the dish-water. The vinegar will cut the grease, and leave your dishes sparkling. And to clean your dishwasher simply run a cup of white vinegar through the entire cycle of the empty dishes.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
