reduce, reuse and recycle! common household items turned into something useful//coffee filters as polishers, marshmallows to keep brown sugar soft, ketchup bottles as batter dispensers, the list goes on i can't take it!!!!
Brown Sugar, Hot Vinegar, Households Items, Sugar Soft, Ketchup Bottle, Water Cans, Great Tips, Pancakes Batter, Households Tips
1.) Use Coffee Filters for More Than Just Coffee. Coffee filters are multi-purpose. Grab them when in need of a substitute for something you don't have. They're great for cleaning glass and computer monitors. Detox your stinky shoes by filling a filter with baking soda, tying off with a rubber band and placing in your sneakers. Or you can even use it as a dryer sheet by placing a few drops of fabric softener on the filter, rubbing together, than folding in half. 2.) Sheet Storage. Store your sheet sets together in a pillow case. Not only does this keep the entire set together, but it makes for neater and more compact storage. 3.) DIY Watering Can. Take an old laundry detergent container and drill holes in the lid for an instant watering can that not only allows you to recycle a disposable container, but is sturdy enough to hold up to continued use. Plus there are no worries about water sloshing out! 4.) Keep Brown Sugar Soft. Use a marshmallow in your brown sugar to keep it soft. 5.) Ketchup Bottle as Pancake Batter Dispenser. Repurpose an empty ketchup bottle into a pancake batter dispenser and pour the right amount every time! It's also less messy and it makes it easier for making smiley face pancakes for the kids! 6.) Organize Upright. Create more room for your flatware by storing it upright rather than laying it down. I am constantly running out of room for my knives, forks and spoons and they often spill over into the next one's cubby. This solves that problem and allows you add more silverware to your collection for those holiday get togethers. 7.) Create a Kitchen Command Center. Keep all of your scheduling and menu planning in one place with a well organized kitchen command center. Your command center should feature a menu planning board, dry erase note board, magnet boards, and chore charts. 8.) Doggy Drawer. The dog doesn't live in the garage, so why store his food there? Instead use a deep drawer for keeping your pup's kibble along with a handy scoop for when it's time to dish out dinner. 9.) Nix Stains with Pantry Staples. Treat a variety of common clothing stains with products you have in your pantry. Egg yolk and luke warm water will remove a coffee stain. Just allow to set for a minute or two, then rinse. Get rid of blood stains, but immersing the fabric in very cold water, then sprinkingly heavily with salt. Scrub with soap and rinse. Plus more! 10.) Lemon as Cutting Board Cleaner. Use a fresh cut lemon to clean your wood and plastic cutting boards. Squeeze the lemon juice on your board and allow to sit for 20 minutes before rinsing. Voila! 11.) Use Baking Soda for Everything. Baking soda is the perfect household staple as it's great for everything from cleaning to deodorizing to hygiene. Use it in the fridge to keep odors away, as a mouthwash rinse, to clean grills, and even as part of your laundry routine. 12.) Revive Old Paintbrushes. You can revive old paint brushes by soaking them in hot vinegar then washing with regular old soap and water. This removes old paint and softens the bristles. Do you have other great tips and ideas for organizing, cleaning, cooking, or just getting things done? I'd love for you to share them in the comments! Looking for unique ways to organize your office?

A marshmallow keeps brown sugar soft, hot vinegar can revive paintbrushes, and many other household tips. I love the idea of the ketchup bottle used for pancake batter. Great tip.

How to Cover a Lampshade - KEY NOTE: buy the "conso lifestyles" lampsade at JoAnn's Craft & Fabric Store - the plastic liner removes to become the pattern for the fabric... and the shade is super sticky for the fabric to stick to. Super simple to do!
