15 examples of the creative use of ordinary items in the home

The vast majority of people are accustomed to the fact that things can be used only for their intended purpose.

However, if you apply a bit of fantasy, you can save a lot of money by using available tools for various purposes.

1. Tea bags as a home spray

Great smell.

Do not rush to throw away used tea bags. If you collect them in a jar, which put in the fridge, the bags will absorb almost all odors.

2. Cat toilet filler as a “rescue” for the phone

Dries anything!

If the phone gets wet, do not panic, you can use the cat tray. You need to remove the battery and the SIM card, then dry the phone and insert it into the sock, tie it up and place it in a container filled with cat litter. After three days the phone will be dry.

3. Baby wipes as a cleaner for gadgets

Very effective tool.

Before you go to the supermarket and buy expensive cleaning products for electronics, you need to remember one thing. Baby wipes work no worse.

4. Hydrogen peroxide as a stain remover

Perfect stain remover.

Unfortunately, the appearance of bleach made you forget about hydrogen peroxide. This substance, which is commonly used today as an antiseptic, can be an amazing disinfectant and stain remover.

5. Vinegar as a cosmetic for animals

Vinegar for beauty.

It's not a mistake. You just need to mix a cup of white distilled vinegar with one liter of water, then soak your hands in the mixture and rub the pet's fur. He will literally sparkle.

6. Baking soda as kitchen cleaner

Instead of all household chemicals.

Before you spend money on a sink cleaner, you should try regular baking soda. First you need to pour about 1 cup of baking soda solution into the sink. Then you need to add a little white vinegar and leave for five minutes. And finally, pour 3.5-4 liters of boiling water into the sink. The results will surprise.

7. Cinnamon as a repellent

Good not only for cooking.

You can forget about expensive pesticides. If you need to get rid of ants in the house, then all you need is cinnamon. Just pour a little cinnamon where these insects live.

8. Toothpaste as a universal detergent

For teeth and not only.

You can save a lot of money by using toothpaste to clean sinks, lamps, and almost everything in the house. It will also eliminate the garlic odor from the hands after cooking.

9. Alka Seltzer as bait

Alka Seltzer.

Oddly enough, if you throw a few pills of Alka Seltzer into the water near the place where you are going to fish, it will attract fish better than any bait.

10. Bananas as a silverware cleaner

Cleansing banana.

At the same time, it will not even be necessary to “spend” tasty bananas, because their skin will be needed. You just need to wipe the silverware inside the banana peel and ... forget about expensive cleaning products forever.

11. Honey as a killer of bacteria.

Honey is an excellent antibacterial agent.

Some varieties of honey can be used as a very effective antibacterial agent. They can also reduce scar formation on wounds.

12. Aspirin as an anti-itch drug

Against mosquito bites.

Surely, there is no person who loves mosquitoes. But what to do when these nasty insects have already drank enough krovushki. You can grind a few aspirin tablets and mix them with a pair of tablespoons of water. If this mixture is rubbed with a bite spot, it will reduce itching.

13. Baking soda as toothpaste

This will not tell any manufacturer of toothpastes. But not only does the soda refresh your breath, it also whitens your teeth.

14. Charcoal as an air freshener

Charcoal - a great freshener.

No matter where you put a little bit of coal - in the fridge or in the car. In any case, it will keep the air fresh and clean.

15. Aluminum foil as scissor sharpener
