You Can Still Use These 100-Year-Old Kitchen Hacks Today

These Life Hacks are over 100 years old but still work great today! So, if you ever find yourself rummaging through the garage or basement, be sure to check for any hidden treasures. The Household Hacker has selected his favorite kitchen hacks from a collection of a century-old printed cards with all sorts of hacks to make life easier. Let’s go thought them all: Ever found yourself with a couple of cracked eggs that you really like to boil? Stop their insides from spilling into the boiling water by adding a good dose of white wine vinegar. Boil and cool as usual and they won’t taste like pickled. Do you have a priceless heirloom vase that you keep safely tucked away from fear of knocking it over? Find nice looking gravel or sand from the hardware store and fill the vase a few inches. It will actually make it even more decorative! However, if you do drop a glass vessel and it shatters into a million pieces, carefully pick up the large chunks of broken glass, then use a wet towel to pick up the crumbs. You will have to discard that rag altogether, but at least the cleanup is faster! Ever had a couple of glasses completely stuck together? If you tug on the they might eventually break! The cars suggest you will the glass on top with cold water and place the bottom one in hot water. Cold will make the top one shrink and heat will make the lower one expand just enough for them to come away. Simple physics. One hack that keeps sneaking through in these videos is something that can always come in handy, and that is how to cool down a bottle of beverage without ice of a cooler. Just wrap the bottle tight with a towel, put it into a bowl under the tap and run cold water over it. That is it! If you need to clean a glass bottle and you don’t have a bottle cleaning brush, all you need to do is put some rice, water and a few drops of dish soap into your dirty vessel and swish everything inside, up and down. Then dump the insides into a strainer, rinse the bottle and it is as good as new.

Buying These 10 Things At The Dollar Store Saves Money

People frown upon the idea of buying something for just $1, when other stores sell them for far greater prizes, but have you stopped to think which products are actually worth buying here? No need to fry brain cells, watch this clip instead! The holidays are coming and that means a lot of greeting cards! Why splurge of a piece of fancily printed cardboard paper, when you can get the same Forget Me Not card for a buck or less. Christmas, Halloween, Birthdays, they’ve got them all! Why spend so much money on Advil, when you can get store brand Ibuprofen to kill that headache. It only costs a buck for a lot more dosages; just make sure to check the expiration date. Same goes for the bandages, and their pack holds 2 to 4 times the amount bandages inside! You can purchase cosmetics and lipbalm at the dollar store too! You can even find popular brands, like Blistex, Chapstick and Carmex, all which cost far more elsewhere. Did we tickle your saving spirit? Save your cash! Get the essentials at the dollar store instead! Start earning extra money and gift cards by clicking here: http://9nl.es/SwagbucksHack Huge thanks to Swagbucks for sponsoring!

As Seen On TV Products Tested And Recreated At Home10m04s

As Seen On TV Products Tested And Recreated At Home

Today, we’ll take a look at “As Seen On TV" products and attempt to create our own. So, whether you’re looking to cook eggs on the go, unclog that nasty drain, repel those pesky rodents, or remove that stripped screw, the Household Hacker has the solution for you. Love some scrambled eggs in the morning, but can’t be bothered with all the cooking? You can get the Egg-Tastic, a ceramic microwave egg cooker. But can you skip the phone call and DIY it at home? Just find a big enough ceramic mug and something to cover it with with ventilation holes on it. The end result is the same! If your home is infested with pests and rodents, there is a peppermint-based spray that is safe to use around pets and children, that advertises it will repel mice, coons, roaches and ants! But the peppermint scent dissipates after a few days and if you are not consistent with its application, those pesky pests are very likely to come knocking again. The solution is to create your our concoction by using peppermint essential oil, a cup of water and some dish soap. It is far cheaper than the advertised product and you can make more for less. You’ve probably come across the Drain Wig, which is supposed to sit in the drain of your tub and catch any rogue hairs that fall down. You can pay $20 for 4 Wigs or you can just improvise them using couple of zip ties for practically nothing! They work either way. Check out the rest of the video to find out how you can save more money! The Household Hacker does it, so you won’t have to!

These Are 10 Terrible Life Hacks You Should Never Try At Home3m42s

These Are 10 Terrible Life Hacks You Should Never Try At Home

The Household Hacker is a genius when it comes to gathering and discovering hacks and tricks that will alter your life forever - maybe even make you some extra free time. A lot of people on the world wide web want to be like him, so they try and create some tips and hacks of their own that in turn create more dismay that comfort. The Household Hacker wouldn’t be what he is if he didn’t gather them all in one video to show us just how terrible those ideas are. They do get the credit though, just not in the comfort of your own kitchen...or elsewhere! Some of these tips truly are idiotic, but others seems legit enough...until you use them! Like the tip about overusing toilet paper: tie a zip tie down the middle, so that you split the pieces in half, doubling the amount? No, thanks! How about cooling your house down during the last days of summer by popping the freezer door open and mounting a box fan out front. What can possibly go wrong there? No space in your fridge for that 12-pack of soda? Someone said you can empty the cans of soda into an empty plastic bottle, because one large soda bottle takes up far less space than 12 cans...Come again? And if you get dirty everywhere you go, just squirt some liquid soap into the pockets of your pants and you can rub your hands with the soapy fabric anytime. Just brilliant, isn’t it?

Did you know that you can clean around your home without ever having to buy those expensive, stinky chemicals that may do more harm than good? You probably have most of these items in your pantry or bathroom and you can use them in a variety of situations. Like, did you know that you can clean your windows with carbonated water? It is cheaper and far less damaging to your self and others and it actually does a pretty good job when you wipe it off with a soft cloth, or even better, with some newspaper. Here’s something that is definitely a pain to clean, those wooden window blinds that everyone hates cleaning. You just need an old glove and some fabric softener. Put the glove on and dip your index and middle finger in the softener, then just wipe away. Your room will smell like heaven and the dust from the blinds won’t fly everywhere! This one’s a no brainer - put a cup of baking soda with a few drops of essential oil mixed in into a mesh strainer and sprinkle it over your mattress to remove odors and keep it smelling fresh.

These 60-Year-Old Life Hacks Are Still Relevant Today10m03s

These 60-Year-Old Life Hacks Are Still Relevant Today

Many of us can relate to this video. Do you remember the first time you hit treasure when you were sorting through your grandparents’ junk in their basement? Those old soggy boxes didn’t look like a nuisance anymore. How about the time when you saw your grandfather fixing something and his tricks looked totally crazy, but they turned out genius at the end? Well, this video might have the explanation to everything. Sorting through the basement, the HouseholdHacker found an interesting edition of 1001 - How-to Ideas from 1957. He was wondering whether these tips and trick no less than 60 years old would still work today, so he decided to give them a try. He chose sixteen hacks he thought would still work today and decided to make them. He started with a paint cleaning mechanism using a U-shaped magnet. He then followed with an interesting mechanism to help you move heavy objects without leaving scratches, a DIY lamp and the most delicious way to cook some bacon. Number five was a very clever way of pouring liquids down a funnel, followed by a nifty door mechanism, a potato hack and a staple remover. He informed us about various uses of hand soap, iron and brass wool. He also gave a few tips on screwing and hammering nails, as well as hiding your valuables and taking your loaf of bread out of the oven, even protecting your wood surfaces from scratching.

Check Out These 9 Super Quick Tricks That Will Save You Some Nerves In The Bathroom

some of our favorite bathroom tricks to help you keep yours fresh and clean and most importantly... UNCLOGGED! First of all, let’s address the noise problem. Don’t you just hate it when you drop the seat of your toilet down, only for it to bang on the porcelain, the sound echoing across the bathroom tiles and you wish you knew how to use it without ever lifting it? All you have to do is save the cork from the next vintage you down, slice it up and stick it under to muffle the sound. You can also use self adhesive furniture casters or chair glides. When you are out of bathroom freshener, hide a few dryer sheets under the toilet paper roll. Wrap a few on the holder and put your roll on. Every time the roll spins, the sheets will release their scent and no one will ever know! Speaking of toilet paper, here’s a secret that will save you the agony when you find yourself without the fluffy white stuff. The empty roll can be deconstructed into the several rolls it is made of, which if you layer down enough, can be soft enough for your derriere and easy enough to flush. You’re welcome.

7 Impressive Pencil Tricks You Can Try Right Now

If you are an office supply hoarder and happen to have a significant stash of pencils and pen rolling around in a drawer somewhere, this might be high time to put them to good use. Of course, you could use them as they were meant to, write until they run off, but the Household Hacker has some interesting new uses for your wooden writing utensils that you might want to try. On the more useful side, you could use a pencil to clean the threads on your hiking boots, after you came back from a muddy trail. Use the rubber end for the thicker threads and the sharper end for the thinner ones. It really is all about resourcefulness before resources that makes a world of a difference. When you sharpen your pencils, don't throw away the shavings. Put them in a drawstring bag and drop a few drops of lavender oil for good measure. Then just stow that bag full of lavender scented shavings in your closet and every fiber-loving moth that would like to check out the menu in your closet will instantly change its mind. Check out the rest of the video for some other cool tricks that will make you wanna hoard some more pencils in the future! Enjoy! SUBSCRIBE HERE: https://goo.gl/n2QG6e

7 Genius Pool Noodle Tricks You Should Know4m27s

7 Genius Pool Noodle Tricks You Should Know

If you ask any DIYer out there what their favorite material is, most will probably admit that they always have a pool noodle or two laying around, just in case. Pool noodles are cheap and can solve tons of everyday problems. Pool noodles can help you with the simple nuisances around the house, like when you need to fill up a bulky bucket with water, but it just won’t fit under the tap. Take a pool noodle, stock one end on the tap and use it as an extension hose to fill up the bucket - mess free! Is the hose of your vacuum not long enough for those hard-to-reach places? Use a pool noodle as a hose extension, that will also keep you from worrying that you might scratch the walls or window frames. How about something more creative? Those Woof Washers seem to have taken the internet by storm a while back, but one pool noodle costs far less and it can do the exact same job if you twist it in a hoop, tie it with some zip ties and poke a few holes. Just make sure you get the right pressure with the hose, so you don’t burst the noodle.

7 Money Saving Tricks For Your Car

In this day and age, a lot of us rely greatly on our cars. We spend a lot of time in them, whether it is for our daily commute or a trip to the market and to the school. There are many ways to keep your car looking good and clean without spending a fortune. Check out these seven tips and save yourself some money in the process. If you don’t have a phone mount in your car, you can replace that easily with two binder clips and an elastic band. Thread the elastic through one of the prongs on each clip and the prop your phone onto a vent of your choice. Another simpler, yet not so pretty version would be to thread the elastic through two of the slots on the vent and slide your phone in. It is as simple as that. If you are fed up of buying air fresheners over and over, only to replace them a few weeks later, try cutting out a shape out of cardboard and adding a few drops of an essential oil of your choice. Again, it might not be sightly, but it sure it way cheaper and you can always “refill” it with a few more drops. And if those nooks and crannies around your interior look dusty and grimy, all you will need is some cheap old Silly Putty! Buy it at the dollar store and keep in your car for a quick pass over those dirty areas. SUBSCRIBE HERE: https://goo.gl/n2QG6e Post your own Car Life Hacks in the comments!

How To Make ICE BALLS!5m45s

How To Make ICE BALLS!

Make your own ICE BALLS with common household items! No special mold needed as we figured out the perfect DIY way to make them right now! Who says that ice has to come in cubes? Whether you're looking for a way to keep your favorite alcoholic beverage cool without diluting it or simply trying to keep your soda colder, longer, ice balls are the way to go. Luckily, there's an easy way to make ice balls on almost any budget! Buy a package of water balloons. This method is cheap, quick, and easy — perfect if you don't want to spend money on specialty molds for making ice balls. All you'll need is a few round water balloons (and, of course, water and a freezer.) Remember that, if you're using your ice balls to cool your drinks, they'll need to be able to fit inside your glasses. Thus, when it comes to water balloons, generally, the smaller, the better! Fill your balloons with enough water to make small spheres. If you want color ice balls add two drops of food coloring when you do this. Grab a balloon, open the neck, and slide it over your faucet. Turn the water on at a low level so that it gradually fills the balloon. You want enough water so that you have a small globe that you can easily handle with one hand — this is probably a lot less than you'd use if you were going to have a water balloon fight. Once again, you'll want to make sure that your ice balls are small enough to fit in whichever glass you plan to use. A good way to check this is to put your glass around the balloon as it fills. Keep in mind that water expands when it freezes, so you want to leave a little extra room on each side! Check out the other super easy methods - you're gonna want to try them out immediately!
