When you have your own house or are even renting, it comes with its own set of problems. However, things do not need to be so difficult. There are plenty of quick and easy fixes that offer a new approach to tidying up and maintaining your home. Did you know essential oils can give your bathroom 24-hour freshness? Or that a certain household tool is perfect for picking up pet hair? Read on for home hacks that will make your life so much easier!
Use Essential Oils In The Bathroom
The bathroom comes with its fair share of odors and we often use aerosol sprays to take care of it. This is hardly a long-lasting solution, so if you want something a little stronger, why not try essential oils. Just a few drops of your favorite essential oil soaked into the cardboard of your toilet paper roll will do the trick! Every time someone grabs for more TP, the essential oil scent will be released into the air.
A Hiding Spot For Your Spare Key
Having a spare key always comes in handy when you accidentally lock yourself out of the house. Most people hide a key somewhere near their front door but you wouldn’t want to hide it anywhere obvious so that a burglar can find it! Try putting the key into an empty pill bottle. Then glue a pine cone or other piece of foliage natural to your front lawn to the end of the bottle. This way, you can bury it in a bush or some rocks near your door!
