5 Tips And Tricks Anyone Can Use Around The House

tips and tricks

Here’s some great tips and tricks you can use almost anywhere around the home and some of them may surprise you!

Vinegar For Removing Paint on Nylon Brushes

1- Soak gunked-up nylon brushes in hot vinegar for up to 30 minutes to remove paint and soften the bristles. Afterward, wash them in hot, soapy water, brushing off paint as needed, then rinse and let dry—good as new.

Lemons For Removing Mold

2-  Take  a lemon wedge, rub it in the corner where tile meets the porcelain tub, and run it up and down over the caulking. Let it sit about 15 minutes, checking it about halfway through (at which time you can reapply). Rinse the tub then clean it as usual. 

How To Protect Your Fingers While Hammering A Nail 

3- Hardware and hair products can live in harmony and come to your rescue when you least expect it. For example, when it comes to keeping a nail steady on the wall, sometimes, especially if you are driving it from an awkward position, there’s nothing better than to hold it steady with a wide-tooth comb.

Using Caulk On Baseboard

4- Always have a bucket of water with a rag in it. Cut the tip at an angle as small as you can and still fill the joint. Wet your finger and press as you run your finger down. Do a small section at a time maybe 4-6″ and wipe your finger on the
rag. Trick is to use only as much caulk as needed. When the correct amount if applied your finger will just flatten the caulk and not remove much. It takes time to master but worth it in the end. If you have white baseboard and white
walls there is no need to paint. If your walls are dark you may need to paint. The wet rag and wet finger are key. Along with not too much caulk.

Keeping The Mess To A Minimum When Drilling

5- Fold a Post It- Note to catch dust when drilling. The Post It-Note holds the dust!
