Buying professional products to repair and clean messes can get tiring and expensive.
If you have been looking for simple projects to complete without the help of professionals, you’ve come to the right place. DIY (Do It Yourself) hacks are simple, cost-effective tasks that enhance various aspects of life.
For our top 5 essential DIY hacks that are completely DIY, read on!
Let’s face it – we would all like to have clearer skin.
One simple way to do so is to make your own face mask with household items. This DIY hack requires baking soda, water, and a splash of lemon juice.
Mix two teaspoons of baking soda with one teaspoon of water, and squeeze in a little lemon juice. Apply it to your face and let it dry for five minutes before rinsing with water.
Face masks help to hydrate skin, remove excess oils and also improve the appearance of pores. They are also an excellent way to help pull out impurities.
DIY Hacks for Ovens
For the next DIY hack, we will take a look at your kitchen appliances. Ovens can be tough to clean, especially with messes that have been left for too long.
For this hack, combine these items in a bowl:
- 5 tablespoons of baking soda
- 4 tablespoons of white vinegar
- 5 drops of dishwashing liquid
The mixture should form a thick paste. Now, take a sponge and spread the mixture over your oven. Leave it to sit for at least 15 minutes. After, take a sponge and scrub the grease away.
Noticing scratches and dings on your vehicle over time? Not unlike removing scratches from wood surfaces, make sure the surface area is clean before trying this DIY hack.
Grab a damp, soft cloth and a smear of toothpaste. Note, if the scratch is deep enough, then it may not work completely and the paint will need to be reapplied.
Add a dab of toothpaste to your damp cloth. Rub the toothpaste onto the scratch or scuff mark using a small, circular motion to cover its surface.
As you move or lift the cloth, you should see the scratch or scuff mark disappear.
Removing stains from clothing can be a pain. This DIY hack can help with just a few household items.
Mix together one-part dish soap with two parts hydrogen peroxide. Then, mix in tablespoons of baking soda to create a paste. Rub generous amounts of the mixture onto the stained area with a toothbrush.
Let the garment sit for at least an hour. Wash the clothing as recommended on the label. For some custom labels, will require a delicate washing setting.
Make sure the stain is removed completely before drying by repeating the process as needed.
Homes sometimes get annoying fruit flies. These tiny gnat-like insects are often found near a trash can or kitchen sink.
This DIY hack to get rid of them uses cider vinegar, a jar, dish soap, and plastic wrap. Pour just enough cider vinegar to cover the bottom of the jar. Add a drop of dish soap into the mixture.
Cover the jar with plastic wrap and poke a few holes in the top. The flies can’t resist going inside, and will be trapped for you to dispose of them!
