Owning or renting a home may come with its own set of problems but it doesn’t always need to be so difficult. There are plenty of quick and easy fixes that offer a new approach to tidying up and maintaining your home. Did you know essential oils can give your bathroom 24-hour freshness? Or that a certain household tool is perfect for picking up pet hair? From simple chores around the house to storage shortcuts that open up more space you didn’t know you had, these home hacks will hopefully make your life that much easier!

Just wait until you see why you should glue a magnet to your hammer…

 

Use Pool Noodles As Bumpers In Your Garage

Not all garages are created equally and some people unfortunately have to fit their cars into such narrow spaces. For those who have a small garage, try slicing a pool noodle in half and attaching the pieces to either side of the garage walls.

Next time you get out of your car, the doors will nudge softly against the noodles instead of hitting the wall. No more scuff marks on the wall and no more dings on your car door!

 

Check To See If Your Ceiling Fan Has This

If you know anything about science, then you know that hot air rises because it is less dense than cool air. This isn’t exactly helpful during those chilly winter months, but there is likely a switch on your ceiling fan that will help that!

Most ceiling fans are equipped with a small switch that changes the direction of the fan blades. In the winter, use this switch to get the blades moving in a clockwise direction so that the warm air will be pushed from the ceiling to the floor.
 

Use A Magnet To Keep Your Hammer And Nails Together

Many of us don’t use a hammer and nails too often. You likely have both in your house, but when you finally need to use them, you can’t find one or the other. This is not only annoying but it is also dangerous to have unused nails lying around.

To avoid this mess and keep everything in one place, you can attach a small magnet to the bottom of your hammer. This will keep your nails attached to it when you need it most!
 

Did You Know A Squeegee Could Do This?

One of the biggest caveats to having a cat or a dog is the amount of fur that can accumulate on your floors, especially if you have carpet throughout your home. Regular vacuuming usually does the trick but sometimes vacuums aren’t strong enough to pick up everything!

Next time, try using a squeegee to loosen all the hair off of the carpet. The hardest clumps will come out before you run over your carpet with the vacuum again.
