25 Cleaning Hacks That Will Make Your Life Easier - Page 2 of 3
Instead of wearing yourself out by scrubbing, simply fill a bowl (one that is microwave safe) with 1 to 2 cups of water, 2 tablespoons of white vinegar and a few drops of your favorite essential oil. Place the bowl in the microwave and run for 5 minutes. If you have a really messy microwave, leave it sitting in there for a few extra minutes after the timer goes off. Then just wipe clean with a damp towel.
Cauliflower Rice: When you bring this rice to the table people often have no idea that its cauliflower. Serve this in place of normal rice, mashed potatoes or pasta. 100g of cauliflower rice is only 24 calories, compared to 100g of rice at 355 calories!
Coffee Maker as Chocolate Melter - Soften chocolate for baking without having to drag out the double boiler. Instead, put the chocolate in an ovenproof bowl, set the bowl on the heating plate, and turn on the machine.
Mosquito trap - No more mosquitos!! Cut the top off a 2 liter bottle. Invert the cone and place it inside the bottle. Glue the two pieces together. Add 1 tsp yeast and 1/2 cup sugar to some luke warm water, and pour the mixture into the bottle. Mosquitoes are attracted to the carbon dioxide that you exhale. The yeast feeds off the sugar and emits the same gas, so the mosquito enters the bottle, thinking she will find food there. FLIES LOVE THIS!!! Have caught 1000's of flies!!
