New Uses For Home Products – Small Tips Making a Big Difference
There’s nothing more fascinating and useful at the same time than discovering that an item we usually associate with a single use has, in fact, more hidden talents. We just need to discover them and enjoy these little secrets to the full. To cut a long story short, here is another series of new uses for home products, as seen on Realsimple.com.
Olive oil has countless benefits for our health. But did you know you can also use the olive oil to shave? It is a perfect substitute for shaving foam, hydrating the skin at the same time, leaving it smooth and healthier. Now, since we gave men a piece of advice, here’s one to women as well. Remove eye makeup in the evening by dabbing a little under the eyes and then rinse off with a washcloth.
The coffee filter is another item one can hardly imagine to use someway else than for its primary purpose. Well, this time we won’t stick to cleaning or personal hygiene purposes. For instance, when you’re taking a close-up, soften the brightness by placing a coffee filter over the flash. At the same time, strain wine from a bottle with a broken cork. It often happens we force a cork out and then it breaks, filling the liquid with tiny pieces we don’t really want to sip. Place the filter over a pitcher or a carafe and slowly pour the wine into it.
You can also clean windows with a filter coffee, being as efficient as a newspaper, leaving no lint behind as paper towels do. You can also prevent soil from draining out of flowerpots. When repotting, place a filter at the bottom, over the drainage hole, then add the soil.
We have spoken about vinegar for many times. Here is a new use we’ve never mentioned so far: if you have an oily hair and have to wash it way too often, then count on vinegar since it is a good degreaser for oily hair because it helps adjust pH levels. Shampoo your hair as usual, rinse, then pour 1/4 cup over it and rinse again.
