11 Uses For Mayonnaise That Will Make You Say “May-Oh My Gosh”

I know there are a lot of people in the world who think mayonnaise is gross, and frankly you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life. Mayonnaise is nothing but a God-send condiment that can be used in more ways than you ever could have imagined.

I’m not just talking in the kitchen, either. As most of you know, mayo is the definitive choice over butter when making a grilled cheese, and can also make any dip a crowd-pleaser. But did you know there are ways you can use mayo around the house for non-food related tasks?

These are some of the lesser known uses for mayonnaise that’ll leave you saying “may-oh my gosh!”

For those of us that suffer from brittle and dry nails, it can be frustrating to spend money on treatments that really don’t work well. Luckily, mayonnaise is a great moisturizer for your nails! Coat your nails in mayo and let them sit for a while. The condiment also helps repair damaged cuticles, so it’s like a two-in-one deal!

Keeping in the beauty realm, you can use mayonnaise as an exfoliating treatment and moisturizer! Use it the same way you would any mask, and reap the rewards!

You can also use mayo to moisturize dry heels, elbows, knees, or whatever else is bothering you. Let it sit for 10 minutes and then rinse well.

Okay I’m going to have to stop with the mayo names, but this one is great for furniture! How many times have you had someone put a drink on your table WITHOUT using a coaster? I know, right? Rude. Those ring stains on wooden furniture can be erased using mayo! Apply a layer to the affected area and let it sit there for up to 48 hours (depending on how bad the stain is). Afterwards, wipe off the mayo and revel in the wonder that is a clean table!

If you’re the unlucky soul who gets stuck parking under a tree that produces a lot of sap, then I suggest you pay close attention to this one. Cover any tar or sap spots with mayonnaise and let it sit for about 10 minutes. Wipe it off with a clean cloth and you’re good to go!

12 Crafty Ways To Use A Bar Of Soap In Every Room Of Your House

If you grew up in a house like mine, you probably had the same three things in the shower as me: shampoo, conditioner, and a bar of soap.

Before our list of bathroom must-haves got really complicated, we relied on that little bar to keep clean. And it did the job really well.

While people aren’t buying these useful little bricks as much as they used to, they really should.

As it turns out, soap isn’t just for the shower. There are all kinds of clever uses for this bathroom staple, in every room of your house.

No one likes finding creepy crawlies in their home, and soap keeps almost all of them away.

  • A soap bar (wrapped in thin fabric, to avoid leaving a stain) will keep mice and moths away from any room.
  • Soapy water is a simple but effective natural bug repellent for your garden. Just spray a little on the leaves of your plants.
  • Hanging bars of soap along your property line will keep larger critters, like deer, away from your plants too.

Every stain requires a slightly different approach, but soap is one of the few ingredients that helps clean them all.

Rub the bar over a stain before you treat or wash it. Be sure to follow our handy stain guide if you’re not sure which product cleans which.

Your Best Digs

If a pair of old, tight, leather shoes are pinching your feet, a bar of soap can give you relief in a surprising way.

Rub the soap inside the shoe, this will soften up the material but won’t damage the shoe or mark it. Your foot should slip in with ease and feel much comfier.

It’s so predictable: no matter how much painter’s tape you use, you’re bound to leave marks on a doorknob, or the adjoining wall, or somewhere else in the room.

If you rub those surfaces with a bar of soap – along the corners, on door frames, metal fixtures – any paint that bleeds on can be washed off very easily, leaving no marks behind.

10 Simple Solutions To Your Most Common Tech Problems

I’m no tech genius, but in this day and age, you’ve got to be at least a little bit tech savvy.

That doesn’t mean you need to know how to code a website, but you should be able to fix some minor issues that happen to every computer and cellphone.

Remember, technology was made to be easy to use. If you find it difficult, there’s probably something you’re doing wrong.

Here are 10 simple solutions to all your daily tech problems:

If your computer mouse doesn’t require batteries, it may freeze up because there’s a lot of dust, dirt, or hair underneath. Clean that gunk off using a toothpick, then clean with a Q-tip dipped in alcohol.

I know how frustrating it can be when you’re trying to finish a task and your computer or phone is loading applications or websites very slowly.

This is likely caused by too many tabs being open.

If your phone is charging slowly or it won’t charge at all when you put in the charging cable, it’s possible that there’s a lot of gunk in there.

I don’t know anyone who doesn’t just throw around their cables. They are pretty sturdy, but dust and gunk can easily get stuck in there. Make sure you clean it regularly using a toothpick.

The last place you’d expect to have a Wi-Fi hiccup is in your home. If your Wi-Fi keeps disconnecting, and it isn’t your service provider’s fault, chances are your router is old or you’re too far away from the main router.  

Just last week, I spent hours on the phone trying to figure out why this issue persisted. My service provider guided me step by step on how to restart my wireless connection, but to no avail. I decided to change my router, and there you go, the problem got fixed.

All you need to do is go in the settings, and patiently go through the tabs to find exactly what you want to turn off.

Just by swiping them away or exiting will not make them go away, as you probably already know.

If you’re trying to avoid updates on Windows, select the start button, go to change settings, and disable those important updates.

Learning the quick fix to these next common tech problems will save you time and money!

6 Ways To Keep Away Moths Before They Take Over

Moths are pretty much harmless to you, but they can cause serious damage to your home by eating away at your clothes and cupboards. So, even though they aren’t disease carriers, that doesn’t mean we want them around.

Although you may not notice a moth problem right now, when the weather starts to get warmer, they may begin to take over. The warmer weather makes for a perfect breeding ground for them. It’s best to prepare now so they stay away when it warms up. Here are six things you can do to prevent and get rid of moths.

1. Patch your screens.

Winters can be very hard on our screen doors. The cold weather can leave our screen doors with plenty of holes that are the perfect size for moths to fit through. When the weather starts to warm up, take a look at your screen door and make sure there isn’t any holes in it.

If it does have holes in it, patch them up before you start using your screen door again. This will remove an entry way for moths to get in, and any other bugs for that matter.

2. Bowl of soapy water.

This is a common trick: it won’t perfectly, but it’s worth a try. Just mix some dish soap in a large mixing bowl of water, and set it under a lamp. Any moths you do have will fly towards the lamp, bounce around, and land in the water.

This will make a difference if you only have a few moths in the house, but won’t make much of a difference if there’s hundreds.

3. Keep your porch lights off.

When the warmer weather begins, try your best to turn your porch lights off when they’re not necessary. Since moths are attracted to light, they will be guided straight to your house if they see lights. Keeping the lights off will keep the moths away.

But how do you get them out once they’re in?

10 Unlikely Foods That You Should Always Keep In Your Fridge

There’s not too much debate on what should be kept in or out of your fridge. We all know meat should always be kept in the fridge to prevent spoiling, but what about some of those items in your pantry? Are all of them safe in a warmer environment?

Here’s a list of eight unlikely foods that you should always keep in your fridge:

Medication is not food, but it since you digest it and it keeps your body functioning normally, it might as well should be. Practically everyone I know stores all their medication in their medicine cabinet. The storage area in your bathroom is called that for a reason, but there’s actually certain types of medication that will last longer if it’s stored in the fridge.

For example, any type of medication containing probiotics need to be kept in the fridge to prevent heat and moisture from killing the good bacteria.

Insulin, penicillin, aspirin, and amoxicillan are other popular medications that you need to make some room for in the fridge.

If you want to enjoy the sweet taste of corn on the cob, store it in the fridge right when you get home to slow down the chemical process that works to change the flavor.

Experts recommend storing olive, sesame, and walnut oil in the fridge to extend its shelf life.

If you’re like me and buy beef jerky in bulk, keep packets of the cured meat in the fridge if they’re not going to be consumed in a couple days.

Jerky stays fresh when no oxygen gets to it, so once you open that package, make sure you put it in the fridge before it spoils.

Store your mixed nuts in a sealed bag in the fridge to prevent them from becoming stale. The healthy oils will start to taste unpleasant if they’re left out for too long.

These next ones need to go in your fridge immediately, if they’re not already there!

Dryer Sheets Aren’t Only to Be Used in the Dryer

Most of us have a box of dryer sheets that’s kept in the laundry room cupboard somewhere, but did you know you can get so much more use out of them with things not even related to laundry?! From beauty tips to household cleaning, there isn’t anything you won’t be able to get done without the clever hacks of dryer sheets.

  1. Sharpen scissors
  2. Keep your toilet paper roll smelling fresh by placing a dryer sheet inside it.
  3. Use as a duster for blinds, baseboards and furniture.
  4. Get ‘gunk’ off your iron:  turn iron on lowest setting  and let warm up. Lay dryer sheet on ironing board and gently rub iron over it. The sheet will pick up all that ‘gunk’.
  5. Help remove pet hair from clothes by rubbing a dryer sheet on it.
  6. Remove smudges and and fingerprints from any glass surface.
  7. Clean water spots off chrome.
  8. Soak a dryer sheet in warm water with dirty paint brushes for easy cleaning.
  9. Place a dryer sheet at the bottom of your garbage bin to help keep it smelling fresh.
  10. Tame frizzy hair.
  11. Wipe away deodorant stains from clothes.
  12. Polish stainless steel.

Grandma’s Simple Trick To Save Money: Pour Food Coloring In Your Toilet Tank

My grandmother was a penny-pincher of the highest order, and she passed down all sorts of tricks that my family still swears by to this day.

Growing up in the Great Depression taught her to be clever and thrifty, she loved to cut coupons, and she always knew a bad deal when she spotted one.

But her simplest tricks were the best, and this was my all-time favorite.

If you’re like me, you probably notice your water bill creeping up from month to month.

You know your family probably isn’t using more water than usual, so what explains the extra costs?

Often, your toilet tank is leaking down into your bowl.

That may not sound like a big problem, but every drip is like a fraction of a cent on your water bill, and it adds up.

NYC Environmental Protection says a small leak can cost 40 cents a day, while larger ones have been known to hit $53 a day.

So how can you check if your tank is leaking?

The Spruce

Take some food coloring from your kitchen and put a few drops in your tank, just enough to noticeably change the color.

Don’t flush the tank for the next 15 minutes. You can drip coloring in another tank at the same time, to check multiple toilets.

When the time is up, if your toilet bowl has changed color, you definitely have a leaky tank.

Next, you’ll have to fix it.

4 Ways To Stop Your Jeans From Bleeding Dye

The other day I was wearing a relatively new pair of dark wash jeans at work when all of a sudden I looked at my hands and they were blue. I panicked for a minute, wondering if my circulation had cut off or if my pen had exploded, but then it clicked: my hands were dyed because of my jeans. I usually stand with my hands in my pockets, giving the dye ample time to rub off.

A similar situation happened years ago when I was at my grandmother’s house and was sitting on her light-colored sofa. When I stood up, there was a blue stain all over the fabric. Needless to say, she was not happy.

The dye in darker wash jeans has a tendency to bleed, whether it’s on your skin, your furniture, or even onto other articles of clothing. But there are ways to limit the amount of bleeding from the dye, and even stop it altogether!

This may sound simple, but how many of you actually read the washing instructions on your clothing? Dark wash jeans all have specific washing instructions, and most will give you directions like “wash before wearing,” “wash inside out,” or “wash separately.” However, washing your jeans separately isn’t always an option.

Did you know they make dark wash detergents? I didn’t! They’re made to lock in dark colors without fading them over time.

“They really do work,” says Carolyn Forte, director of the Cleaning Lab in the Good Housekeeping Institute. “They have ingredients to help fabrics hold onto dyes and to deactivate the chlorine in the water that can fade colors. We recommend Tide Plus ColorGuard and Woolite Dark.”

Vinegar has also been known to help, if you use it correctly.

Here’s How To Grow A Pineapple At Home In 5 Simple Steps

I never knew pineapples grow on trees. To be fair, I grew up on a farm where we raised cattle and took care of corn fields, so tropical fruits were not our forte.

I’ve been growing ginger, coriander, lemons, and basil in my home for years now. My kids love eating the fruits and vegetables I grow, but they would never help me out with taking care of the plants. I can’t blame them, I wasn’t into gardening when I was in middle school either.

But when my daughter started to become obsessed with pineapples, I asked her if she’d be willing to grow and take care of her very own pineapple tree. I promised her it wouldn’t take much time out of her day, and it would be something fun to do.

We bought a fresh pineapple from the supermarket, and decided to grow it in our living room. I was surprised when my son wanted to help too!

It’s actually pretty simple, and you only need to follow these five steps to get a pineapple growing in your home.

That being said, you must be patient. They don’t grow overnight!

The Best Gardeners Have Already Started, Here’s What They’re Doing

Don’t let that last hint of winter fool you: as far as we’re concerned, spring is here.

If you’re the kind of gardener who waits for stories about “planting season” or big sales at the garden center to start work, you’re already falling behind.

Even before your yard is ready for new plants, you should be seed starting indoors. Then, mature plants can be moved into your garden when they’re ready.

If you haven’t tried seed starting your garden plants before, it can sound intimidating. But the extra work will actually save you time and money in the long run.

First of all, buying seed packets from your garden center is cheaper than mature plants, and there are usually more varieties available too.

Old World Garden Farms

While you’ll need to invest in some extra equipment – like grow lights, indoor seeding soil, and seed planters – they will pay for themselves over time.

If you live in a part of the country with a short growing window, seed starting really pays of. You can squeeze in more crops of vegetables, or enjoy more time with lovely flowers.

But seed starting will also take up space inside your home. Although, a compact planter and light setup can fit easily in a garage, spare room, or your kitchen.

If you’re ready to try seed starting for yourself, we have some helpful tips to get started.

8 Common Mistakes You Make When Applying Deodorant

Since puberty, we’ve been buying and applying deodorant like there’s no tomorrow. We thought that all our underarm problems would be solved with a simple deodorant swipe, but unfortunately, most of us still struggle with smelly and sweaty armpits after all these years.

The good news is that there are some quick fixes to keep the sweat and smell at bay.

Here are eight common mistakes you make when applying deodorant that no one told you about.

1. You’re using the wrong type of deodorant for your skin.

What many people are unaware of is that deodorant and antiperspirant are not the same thing. Deodorants eliminate odor, while antiperspirants block sweat. That being said, you want to make sure you find a deodorant that works best for your body. Sometimes you’ll have to endure that trial and error process until you find the best fit.

2. You’ve been using the same type of deodorant for years.

We’re all guilty of this one. Once we find something that works once, we tend to stick to it forever. The thing is, after some time, your sweat glands start to adapt and develop a resistance to the same brand of deodorant or antiperspirant that you use. If you notice that you’re sweating and smelly more often, it’s probably not caused by a change in your hormones, but because you’re still rocking the same deodorant.

3. You’re not applying enough.

Some of us are hesitant to apply a lot of deodorant in fear of all the chemicals inside of them, but you’re better off not applying it at all if you’re not going to swipe a few times. Make sure to cover your whole underarm area, but know when to stop!

4. You’re applying when your skin is wet.

It’s a good idea to apply deodorant when your skin is clean, but not right after you hop out of the shower and you’re dripping wet. You want to make sure your skin is free of moisturize before you apply. That’s how deodorants work best to keep you dry and smelling fresh all day long.

We’re all guilty of doing at least one of these next mistakes!

6 Simple Ways To Get Rid Of Cockroaches From Your Home

Generally, all pests are frowned upon, but cockroaches are probably the most hated of them all. Not only are these pesky crawlers unpleasant to look at, they contaminate foods, trigger allergies, and on the rare occasion, they can also carry diseases.

However, there’s a big misconception that roaches only infest dirty environments. Sure, these resilient insects do thrive better in unclean areas, but even if you maintain a tidy home, roaches can easily find food and water.

Quest Pest Management

So what happens when you turn on the lights one day and see a roach scurrying to get underneath the fridge?

Of course, it is always a shock when your clean home suddenly becomes infested, but worry not, because there are ways you can get rid of roaches before you require professional help.

Food and shelter are two of the main things that roaches are after when they enter your home. So it’s crucial that you ensure that even the smallest spills are cleaned immediately, leftovers are covered and stored, and food items in your cupboards are properly sealed.

Check behind the stove and refrigerator for food residues that may lurking there. Also, make sure your garbage and recycling bins are covered, cleaned and taken out regularly.

Lowyat Forum

They may be tiny and fast, but you can certainly outsmart them. Since spraying pesticides in your home can contaminate surfaces like the counter tops and lead to helath complications, gel bait is one safer and easier way to handle your roach problem.

The active ingredients in baits like this Advion Roach Bait Gel contain attractants that draw the roaches out of their hiding places and effectively kill them.

10 Hacks To Keep Your House Smelling Fresh And Clean

Whether you live alone or you have a full house, there always seems to be a mysterious smell that lingers. You don’t always have time to bring in a cleaning lady or do a full deep clean yourself, but you also don’t want to live with the stench.

The problem can get especially bad in the winter and colder months because opening a window isn’t always an option. I know that my place can start to smell a little musty when you mix in gym bags, soggy boots, and no air flow.

Luckily, there are ways to keep your home smelling great without having to do a huge clean-out, and they all use things you probably have at home already!

Downy

When you want a room to smell like a summer’s day, you can attach a dryer sheet to your fan and just let it go all day! The fan will blow the scent of the sheets into the room, and you don’t have to go buy an over-powering air freshener. You can also just leave dryer sheets in drawers or closets to make keep the scent without the airflow!

The Spruce

If you come from a smoking household, or a household that burns food regularly (like mine,) then you need to pay attention to this! Smoke smell can linger in your house and be hard to get out. Try soaking a rag in white vinegar, ringing it out, and then walking around the room while swinging the rag around. It’ll take the smell away, even if you look silly doing it!

Medical Daily

The smell of vanilla is one of the most popular in the world, but before you go a buy an expensive scented candle, try this first! Dab a small amount of vanilla onto a light bulb. As it heats up, your home will be smelling sweet in no time! If you don’t want to apply it directly to the light, you can also cook two teaspoons of vanilla extract in the oven for 20 minutes for long-lasting scent!

Bob Vila

One of the smelliest places in the house can be your garbage disposal. Instead of using harsh chemicals, pour some ice in the disposal and let it get ground up. Sprinkle some borax or baking soda down the drain, and the disposal will do the rest for you!

HomeSteading

Older bathrooms or basement bathrooms can start to smell musty and of stale urine (I know, it’s gross) over time. Using chemicals can be expensive and harmful, which is why this solution is perfect. Mix together lemon juice and baking soda until it forms a paste. Scrub the mixture on the toilet seat, the bowl, and the tank if need be. Let it sit for 15 minutes, then add 1/2 a cup of vinegar to the toilet and let it sit for another 15 minutes. Use a sponge to clean up the solution.

7 Ways To Make Your House Smell Great That Won’t Give You A Headache

A good smell is easily one of the most important aspects to maintaining a happy home, and there are literally hundreds of options available for anyone who’s trying to freshen their place up.

However, plenty of people (like yours truly) are often very susceptible to headaches, and severe, artificial scents can often trigger some really unpleasant pain in people who are more sensitive to them. Fear not, my friends, for there are plenty of options that even you can use to make sure your place smells wonderful!

Organic Facts

Notice how pretty much every kind of cosmetic product comes in lavender at some point or another? That’s because it’s a simple, pleasant smell that just about everybody can get behind.

Of course, like with most scented things, fresh is always better, so head to your local market and see if you can find some bundles of the good stuff that you can place around your house and keep it smelling great!

Huffington Post

Tired of your garbage disposal smelling up the place? While you can always treat that with chemicals (but who wants to do that), peel yourself an orange or grind up the rind of a lemon, and use that to mask the smell. Citrus is so, SO much better than garbage in terms of smells.

Target

This obviously requires a bit more spending than some of the other entries on this list, but it has the benefit of giving you lots of options. Natural oils exist in all sorts of scents (I’m personally partial to grapefruit oil myself), and they last a heck of a long time, making them a great choice to get your house smelling great. Be warned though, diffused oils can be dangerous to pets, so be sure to do your research before exposing your furbabies to something toxic.
