The modern household is a bustling den of commotion and activities. Maintaining and running a home has so many duties to manage such as cooking, dishwashing, laundry, floor cleaning and maintenance of furniture among others. In this day and age, we are all hard-pressed for time and are looking for ways to reduce or remove the mundane workload.
The market is filled with a wide variety of appliances and home-equipment offering to reduce your time and effort. However, in reality, these products more often than not prove to be too expensive for the value that they add.
Thanks to the rising popularity of lifehacks on social media, people today are coming across innovative ways of managing their household activities and solving everyday problems without investing in expensive products. Most of these lifehacks can be carried out with readily available household items. Some of the most popular lifehacks that are out there are:
Cooking egg in your everyday ceramic coffee cup instead of buying expensive ceramic egg-makers. You can whisk your egg in the cup just like the product and use a discarded juicer lid or perforated bottle/bowl lid to cover the cup before putting it in the microwave.
Easy screw extraction techniques. Instead of wasting money on buying expensive screw extraction tooltips, you can easily extract stripped screws by placing a rubber band between the screwhead and tool for more traction or simply by hammering the screwdriver into the screw
Forget about buying those expensive rodent-repelling solutions. With just a few drops of peppermint oil and dish soap you can create your very own anti-rodent agent which can be easily applied using a spray bottle.
