Through school/playgroup/family I have learnt some rather interesting things that can make life just that little bit easier… These are the kinds of things that you go “ohhhhhhhh I never would have thought of that” Let me know what you think or add some of your own in the comments!

1. Rubbing a walnut over scratches in your furniture will disguise dings and scrapes.

2. Overhaul your linen cupboard – store bedlinen sets inside one of their own pillowcases and there will be no more hunting through piles for a match.

3. Pump up the volume by placing your iPhone / iPod in a bowl – the concave shape amplifies the music.

4. Put old newspaper at the bottom of your bin to absorb food juices etc

5. Use a stubby holder to cover your gear stick on hot days to save burning your hand

6, Use frozen grapes to chill your wine without watering it down

  • -Peanut butter slathered over tar spots on you car will make it easy to remove.
    – put a mini marshmallow in the bottom of the kids icecream cones, stops the bottom going soggy and dripping.
    – write on bread tags and put around the end of power cords (near the plug), so you know which is which when you have to unplug.

  • Thanks for sharing your fav life tips.
    Here is my all time fav.
    Make your own preservative to keep cut flowers fresh longer. Dissolve 3 tablespoons sugar and 2 tablespoons white vinegar per quart (liter) of warm water. When you fill the vase, make sure the cut stems are covered by 3-4 inches (7-10 centimeters) of the prepared water.

  • Oo pillow cases for linen is so handy! We do one of the boxes in the recycling at the bottom of our bin. Saves so much effort when cleaning the bin.
