  • Bathroom Scum remover
This works SO good!!

You'll need:
1/2 c. of Dawn Dishsoap (Original)
1/2 c. White Vinegar
1 spray bottle

Heat the vinegar until it's HOT, I simply put mine in a glass Pyrex measuring cup and stuck it in the microwave for 1 minute.

Pour it into a clean spray bottle, add the dawn dish soap, put the cap on and shake very gently to mix. (Or you can mix it right in the Pyrex measuring cup and pour it into the bottle

Spray liberally on the surface you wish to clean, leave it alone to do the work for 20 minutes or so. Or better yet, spray it before you go to work, and wipe it up when you come home. Once it's had a chance to work it's magic, wipe it off with a clean rag or sponge and some warm water.

Have you ever thought about how much of our lives we spend in our bathrooms? We visit them multiple times a day, feel bad when we haven’t cleaned them, and otherwise fret about them constantly. With that in mind, here are a few ways to…

Grapefruit Tub Cleaner  Instead of sponges wetted with chemicals, consider using a grapefruit. Its natural acids clean just as well, without irritating the skin, and gives a nice smell afterwards.

Coke in the Toilet Bowl.   A classic trick of custodians all over the world, a dash of Coca-Cola (or any other soft drink) in your toilet bowl cleaning solution will greatly improve its effectiveness.   The acid works wonder at removing stains; just remember to rinse with water application.

Petroleum Plunger Plug.  A little petroleum jelly around the edge of your plunger will help it stick firmly in the toilet, giving it better suction and improving its lifespan.

  • Hang An Extra Shower Curtain Rod.     Tired of bottles, tubes, soap, and toys slipping off shelves and all over the shower floor? Easy fix!   Buy another curtain rod and install it on the back wall of your shower and hang baskets from it. Everyone can have their own basket!

Magnet Strips for Bobby Pins.   Bobby pins have an unfortunate tendency to just sort of be everywhere, except, of course, for when you need one.   Attaching them to a weak magnetic strip pasted to your wall can save you time and frustration.

  • Use Curtains To Highlight Your Tub.   Boring bathroom? Step it up a notch by hanging curtains near the ceiling around your bathtub. It’ll instantly give a touch of class to an otherwise yawn-worthy bathroom.

10 Clever Storage Hacks You Won’t Believe You Haven’t Thought of Yet

  • Better Storage for Cords     If you have a box of cords, you can keep them organized with an empty cardboard box and empty toilet paper rolls. Fold the cords neatly and put them in the paper towel holders for easy access later.

  • Easy Ribbon Rolls   If you have a work station for wrapping gifts, put a hand towel bar on the wall for ribbon rolls.

    • Easy Office Supplies   You probably have a collection of pens and pencils floating around your desk. Put them in an attractive coffee mug to add some color and make them easy to find.

      • Recycled Bag Storage   Put a small laundry basket in the trunk of your car. Use it to hold your recyclable cloth shopping bags, cleaning supplies and other necessary items.

      • Tissue Box Dispenser   Tired of the loose plastic storage bags? Put them in an empty tissue box for easy delivery later.

        • Gift Wrapping Supplies   Put those rolls of wrapping paper in a shower caddy to keep the paper rolls intact and protected.

        • Wardrobe Protection   Don’t buy pricey garment bags that you probably won’t use again. Go with pillow cases that are more effective at protecting your goods and more attractive.

          • Better Tank Top Storage   Hang a rotating shower bar with multiple racks on your closet wall. Slip tank tops on the bars to save room in your main closet.

            • Necklace Storage  Prevent that hideous tangle of necklaces by arranging them on a tie rack or belt organizer.

              • Tidy up the Foyer  Clean up the foyer and your hall closet by putting an attractive dresser in place. Use the drawers for hats and other outdoor accessories.

                • Hat Storage  Turn your favorite hats into a work of art! For large decorate hats, hang simple hooks on the wall to display them as wall art. Keep an extra hat handy to replace the hat you are wearing.

                  • Bobby Pins   Keep track of those rambunctious bobby pins by placing them in an empty Tic Tac container. Genius!

                    • Storage Bed   Store where you sleep! These beds with built-in storage save a ton of space.  

                   

                • Clever Washcloths   Roll up washcloths and put them in an empty baby wipe container for fast access that’s still out of sight.

                  • Utilize every inch   Be sure to use every inch. In small, awkward corners of your living space, try to utilize it for something productive and useful.

 

How Rats Get In Toilets

This image came from a post on Google +. Before I saw this, I always wondered how rats got into houses. This was especially true of upper class neighborhoods. Nobody would ever think that it would be possible for someone in one of those neighborhoods to EVER have rats. Well, think again. This little GIF shows how the rats get in.

DIY: CRAYON CANDLES

DIY: Crayon Candles #craft #crayola #recycled
My obsession with bright colors got me hooked when I saw this tutorial by Brit+Co. I already had a bunch of old crayons on hand from my previous DIY crayon post and I’ve been interested in making candles lately, so this was the perfect project!

Once you’ve gathered your supplies and setup a work space near your microwave, this project is fairly simple and would be a great craft to do with a friend. I loved blending my own colors and experimenting with different color combinations.

DIY: Crayon Candles #craft #crayola #recycled

SUPPLIES NEEDED

• Old crayons
• Glass votives (I used small juice glasses)
• Wax
• Wicks
• Dixie cups (or any paper cup)
• Popsicle sticks (for stirring)

Additional Tools

• Microwave
• X-acto knife

The first step is to peel the paper off your crayons. You can either use an x-acto knife or soak the crayons in water for easy peeling.

Next, fill a dixie cup with wax and microwave for 1 minute. Give it a stir and microwave again in 30 second intervals until wax is completely melted. Pour a thin layer of wax into the bottom of each votive and place the candle wick in the center. Let harden.

DIY: Crayon Candles #craft #crayola #recycled

Using one crayon per color, fill a dixie cup with wax and top with a broken up crayon. Microwave for 2 minutes and then in 30 second intervals until completely liquified. Let cool for 30 seconds or so and pour colored wax into the votive. Let the first layer dry for 20-30 minutes.

DIY: Crayon Candles #craft #crayola #recycled

Repeat this process and continue to pour layers of colored wax into each votive, making sure to let them dry between each layer.

And that’s it!

******************************************************************************

This will probable work really well. Hand sanitizer has alcohol in it and alcohol can dissolve water and therefore unfreeze the lock.
