#1 Grow roses from cuttings
Easily grow roses by pushing the bottom ends of cuttings into small potatoes. The nutrients and moisture inside a potato will allow the cutting to develop healthy roots. Learn more here.
#2 Waterproof shoes
Easily make your canvas shoes waterproof by spreading beeswax onto your shoes and blow-drying them until it melts and spreads.
#3 Dry clothes faster
Place wet clothes inside a dry towel. Then roll it and squeeze until the excess water falls off. Hang them out to dry. You’ll notice that your clothes dry faster.
#4 Get rid of smells in your shoes
Just place a few teabags inside your shoes to get rid of unwanted smells. If it’s wet, place a mixture of rice and baking soda inside the shoes until it becomes dry.
#5 Loosen tight shoes
New shoes always feel tight. Tightly stuff them will wet newspapers and keep them there until the shoes dry out. Then simply remove the newspapers.
#6 Easily start a fire
Potato chips contain fat oil and other flavors; most of all, they are perfect pre-fire starting material.
#7 Find small lost items
Use a vacuum cleaner to find small lost items such as earrings and screws. Simply cover the pipe with a stocking or pantyhose and turn on the cleaner to start your search.
#8 Time-marked water bottle
Keep a tally of your daily water intake by drawing lines on your bottle with a marker pen. You can also write time and do similar customizations like the picture above. No more missing your daily water intake!
#9 Remove toilet bowl stains
Pour a can of Coca-cola (350 ml) into the toilet bowl and keep it overnight. In the morning, a simple clean with soapy water and a flush will make it sparkly!
#10 Unclog drains easily
Clogged drains can be really annoying! To unclog them, run hot water down the drain for a minute. Then sprinkle a cup of baking soda. Following the soda, slowly pour a cup of vinegar into the drain. Flush it once more with hot or boiling water.
#11 Clean the shower head
Clean shower heads and bathroom faucets by putting them in a plastic bag and pouring white vinegar inside it. Secure the bag with a rubber band and keep it overnight. In the following morning, it’ll be good as new!
Secure buttons by painting a little bit of clear nail polish over the threads.
#13 Remove body odor naturally
If you’ve forgotten your deodorant, cut open a fresh lemon or orange in two and rub the halves onto your skin. The unwanted odors will simply vanish!
#14 Amplify your phone speakers
Put your phone inside a drinking glass with the speaker side down. Viola! Instant loudspeakers!
#15 Make ice last longer
Simply sprinkle salt on the inside of your cooler ice to make them last longer.
#16 Natural Mouthwash
Chew on an apple to get rid of your bad breath in a pinch!
#17 Citrus candles
Make your home smell good for hours by lighting a lemon or orange candle. You can make one at home easily. Learn more here.
#18 Open a stuck lid
Jar lids can be stubborn and hard to open. Simply run it under hot water for a minute, wipe it down and try again. Soaking the jar lid in hot water also works. Jar lids can also be opened with duct tape.
#19 Keep pots from boiling over
To keep your pot from boiling over simply put a wooden spoon over across the pot. When the pot boils too high, the wooden spoon will pop the bubbles and keep it from overflowing.
#20 Open a SIM card tray
If you don’t have a SIM card tray ejector tool around then use a small paper clip and push the SIM tray open.
