41) Dryer Sheet: Lint Brush

You already know that dryer sheets remove lint in the dryer.
Well, it can do the same thing out of the dryer, too. When you’re in a fix, use a dryer sheet.
It works just as well as a lint brush, and if you like the scent, it’s an added bonus.

42) Newspaper: Deodorize Food Containers and Food Drawers in the Refrigerator

For that stinky Tupperware or smelly refrigerator drawer that is too much to deal with,
toss in a sheet of newspaper overnight before you deal with it.
The paper will absorb the smell, greatly reducing it or eliminating it completely.

43) Olive Oil: Unstick a Zipper

The oil will help the zipper slide more easily, fixing the problem!

44) Salt: Cool Something Quickly

You know that feeling when you’re having a BBQ and someone asks for a drink
and you realize that no one has put them in the cooler?
There’s nothing worse than a warm drink on a hot day.
Chill a drink quickly by adding salt and water to your ice.
The drinks will be cold in a matter of minutes, saving your party
and making you look smart all at once.


45) Scotch Tape: Prevent Wall from Chipping When Nailing

The wall can leave unsightly chips when hammering in a nail.
Prevent this by simply placing a piece of scotch tape over the area you’re going to nail.
The wall will be held tighter, preventing chips from occurring.

46) Alka Seltzer: Soothe Insect Bites

Dissolve two tablets into a glass of water.
Then use a cloth or cotton ball to apply it to the affected area.
The red will go down and most importantly, and the itchiness will vanish usually in fifteen minutes.

47) Lemon: Whitens Whites

Add about half a cup of lemon juice to your load of whites to makes them extra white. You can use lemon juice with bleach or detergent, so don’t worry about mixing chemicals with the acidic lemon.

48) Banana Peel: Whiten Teeth

This may sound a little odd, but rub the inside of a banana peel on your teeth
twice a day for two weeks and you will receive the same effect from a teeth-whitening kit.
Plus, you’ll save yourself money and the hassle of using chemicals.

49) Hair Dryer: Free Photos Stuck on Pages

If you have a photo stuck on a page that you can’t get free, try using a blow dryer on the back of the page.
It will loosen the photo from the page and the adhesive holding it there.

50) Banana Peel: Heal Most Skin Problems

Bananas are the magical fruit, because they heal many common problems on the skin.
By rubbing the peel on your skin, you can heal bruises and cuts and
eliminate rashes, itching, and warts.
Basically, if you have a common skin problem, it can be cured by this fruit.

I hope you can put some or all of these to good use to save money and make your home a safer environment.
