Simple Yet Ingenious DIY Hacks to Make Your Everyday Life Easier


We all do everyday household tasks, such as doing laundry or nailing into the wall.

But sometimes things can get complicated or even go wrong, no matter how experienced you are in these tasks. For example, you might not be able to loosen a bolt or sink pipe that gets clogged at odd hours (just before the arrival of guests or maybe your boss). 

Keeping this in mind here we have come up with some easy and affordable hacks to simplify those tasks.

These simple ideas will save you time, effort, and money, thereby eliminating the need to call a contractor even for a little job.

Check out these easy home improvement ideas you can try right now. Enjoy!!!


  • To loosen a screw, sprinkle a little Coke on it.
  • To get rid of the noise of a hinge, it is best to rub it with a slice of cucumber.
  • If you need to make a hole in a tile so that it does not break, put the adhesive tape in the shape of a cross in the place where you are going to place it. In this way, the tile will never break, as the force of the drill is received directly by the plastic tape.
  • If your sink pipe is clogged, heat bleach, and when it is about to boil pour it down the sink and let it sit for fifteen minutes. Then pour plenty of cold water.
  • To unclog a clogged shower, it is most helpful to scrub it with an old toothbrush. The bristles of the brush will clean the remains of accumulated lime.

And Some Clever Laundry Tasks

  • Believe it or not, there are some habits when putting the washing machine on that make your clothes not come out as well as you would like. Find out if you make any and correct them for a perfect outfit!
  • When washing the towels, you should not use conditioner, as over time it tends to deteriorate them and they will end up breaking. It is best to wash them with little soap and cold water. In the rinse, it is good to put a splash of vinegar or the juice of a lemon.
  • The best bleach for cotton clothes is hand wash soap. Soap your clothes well and hang them out in the sun for a while. Then rinse and wash normally. It will be like new.
  • The tablecloths, shirts, bedding will be very white if in the last rinse of the washing machine you add a splash of hydrogen peroxide and let it rest for fifteen minutes. If an item of clothing has shrunk you in size, try washing it with detergent and leaving it wet. The weight of the water will help the garment return to its original size.
  • Dark-colored items will retain their original color if you wash them normally and then soak them in salted water and the contents of a beer can. Don’t worry, the beer smell will disappear.
  • When you wash garments of different colors and some of them fade and stain another garment, it is best to boil bay leaves and place the faded garment in this solution and let it cool.
  • To remove underarm sweat stains, rub them with baking soda and lemon, let them sit, and then wash normally.
  • Stuffed animals will look flawless if you put them in a pillowcase in the washing machine.
  • An infallible trick to whiten white socks is to boil them with lemon wedges.
  • If you have natural silk clothes, to preserve their shine, add a splash of vinegar at the time of rinsing.

Repurposing the Furniture

  • Want to make a bedside table? Got a few cases of wine lying around in the garage? Why not make it a bedside table? Sand the crate, apply varnish or paint and install it as is near the bed. It will accommodate a lamp, an alarm clock, and a bedside book.
  • You can also make some shelves out of pallets. For this easy-to-do DIY, take the pallet apart to get some boards. Work them (sanding, varnish…) to obtain very smooth and regular tablets or leave them in the rough. Attach the brackets to the wall, install the planks, and voila!

So these are some easy DIY ideas for your everyday household tasks. However, if you feel that the task is beyond your DIY expertise while it is important to do it, don’t hesitate to call a professional handyman. Otherwise, you might end up making the job even more complicated or damage the things in order to do it forcibly.
