7 HOME HACKS THAT MAKE MAINTENANCE EASIER
1. Tuck Chalk in Your Toolbox to Stop Rust
Bonus tip: Got a musty closet? Fill up a small muslin or cheesecloth bag with chalk and then hang it inside. It will absorb the dampness and stinky odor.
2. Spray Your Mower’s Blades to Keep Clippings From Sticking
Bonus tip: You can prevent ice from building up in your freezer with cooking spray. Just spray a thick layer over spots prone to icing, and let it sit for five minutes. Afterward, use a towel to wipe up the oil.
3. Toss in a Tennis Ball to Clean Your Pool Water
Bonus tip: A tennis ball will buff scuff marks off floors. To avoid stooping while cleaning, cut an X into the ball and place on the end of a mop or broom handle.
4. Use Painter’s Tape for a Perfect Caulk Job
5. Grab a Makeup Sponge to Repair Drywall Holes
Bonus tip: A little baking soda added to a dollop of strong, fast-acting glue, such as Krazy Glue, will fix a small wall crack. When the mixture is dry, it forms a hard plastic that can easily be sanded down to a smooth surface.
6. Use Your Drill to Clean a Grimy Tub
Bonus tip: Another automotive store item that saves cleaning time is rain repellent windshield sealant. Apply it to clean glass shower doors to reduce soap scum buildup.
7. Apply Nail Polish to Fill a Hole in Your Window
Bonus tip: Clear nail polish can also fix torn window screens. You’ll need to apply multiple layers until you create a substantial barrier
