Life isn’t quite as complicated when you have a few tips and tricks up your sleeve. It’s amazing how many unintended uses there are for everyday items (rubber bands, nail polish, muffin liners). I’ve been using a few of these for years, but was surprised at how many of them I had never thought of. Here’s to making life just a bit easier! I’ve compiled a collection of clever uses for things you probably already have in your house.
1. Clear Nail Polish To Secure Screws
Nail polish works like an invisible glue, helping those sometimes loose screws to stay in their place. Another tip: If it’s too late and your screw is already lost, a small earring stud will hold it together until you’re able to replace the screw.
2. Clear Nail Polish To Secure Buttons
Just a dab of clear nail polish will also keep button threads from unraveling. You can apply it as a prevention or to stop an already fraying thread in the unfortunate case that you don’t have a sewing kit handy.
3. Makeup Brush To Clean In Between Keys
An old makeup brush is the perfect size to fit in between the keys on your keyboard and remove dust and small Doritos crumbs. 🙂
