13 Amazing Tips To Reduce Household Chores

Tips To Reduce Household Chores the easy way

Reduce Household choresWe don’t just like to deal with the big issues in life, like property, the stock market, health matters, business opportunities and relationships. We realise that it’s the hundreds of tiny things in life that can really make you happy… or make you mad.

Here are some great tips to reduce household chores and we’ve culled them from researching the nether regions of the Internet. All designed to make your life easier and happier.

  • If you get chewing gum on your clothes leave it where it is and put the garment in the freezer for an hour. The gum will be frozen and easily removed. If you have no freezer simply brush egg white on to it with a toothbrush, leave it for 15 minutes then wash as normal.
  • If you get blood on your shirt after shaving (or fighting, we’re not here to judge!) use your own saliva to rub it of. There is a chemical in your saliva that will eliminate your bloodstains but no one else’s. If there is a little more than your saliva can deal with simply soak it over night and wash out in the morning.
  • Get the perfect hard-boiled egg every time by adding a pinch of salt before putting the egg in the water. This stops the shell from breaking.
  • Check your egg is fresh by putting it into tap water. If it rises to the surface it is not fresh and should be thrown away. N.B: the water must be salted.
  • A good way to use left over red wine is to freeze it into ice cubes and use it in cooking.
  • After a romantic evening, if you find there’s candle wax on the carpet, scrape away most of it with a knife, then put some brown paper over the wax and then put a hot iron on the paper. It will then stick to the paper not the carpet.

If there is grease left on the carpet simply put some baking soda on the spot and vacuum next morning.

  • Clean your coffee grinder as well as sharpen its blades by grinding about a cup full of rice in it.
  • Remove fungus from your walls or fridge with bleach.
  • Freshen your microwave by putting some squeezed lemon juice in a bowl of water and cooking for 30 seconds.
  • Remove crayon marks from the wall by spraying with everyday lubricating oil. Sometimes colours will remain (often red) in this case wipe with a cloth of bleach.
  • If you get permanent marker on your carpet use a cloth soaked in alcohol. Do NOT rub it but just blot the stain making sure you use a fresh piece of cloth with each blot.
  • Ink stains can be easily removed from clothing by rubbing alcohol on it.
  • Tipex can be cleaned from cotton or wool by immersing the stain in a bowl of nail polish remover. Soak it and rub the cloth. Repeat this a few times with fresh nail polish remover until after soaking the remover remains clear.
  • If you are washing any wool clothing, why not use your old bits of hand soap, which are perfect for wool. Put the old bits of soap in a jar of warm water so that it softens. Shake this mixture and pour it into a wool wash. You’ll be surprised and delighted with the result.
