With these hacks, you'll save some money, win back precious seconds, and feel a little smug in the process!
Pepper Brightens Clothes
If you feel the vibrancy of your clothes is fading after several washes, just head to your spice rack. Grab your black pepper, add a spoonful to your washing machine. The pepper is an exfoliant and strips away gunky soap residue.
Banana Peel Skincare
Skincare products a little too pricey? Well, rubbing a banana peel on your face has a multitude of benefits. It fights acne and works as a skin moisturizer, nutrient supplier, and wrinkle fighter. You can use it all over your face or as just a spot treatment.
Cool Drinks Quickly
Instead of just throwing a bottle of soda in the freezer to cool down, try soaking a paper towel with water and wrapping it around the bottle. Just watch as it gets icy cold in mere minutes!
Grapes Instead of Ice Cubes
We've all forgotten to chill our wine and had to use ice cubes. The ice melts and it waters down our perfect glass of rosé. Instead of using ice cubes, use frozen grapes. That way your wine stays cold without ending up a diluted mess.
