Handy Homemaker Tips & Tricks V

Here are 10 more easy {and budget friendly} tips and tricks for all you homemakers out there! 

1. Take scratches out of your CDs/DVDs using a banana

Peel the banana. Rub the banana on the CD in a circular motion. Use the underside of the peel and rub the banana in deeper. Wipe away the residue with a lint-free cloth, like you’d use to clean your car windows. Using another cloth, remove smudges with a spritz of Windex. Voila, she is like new! 

2. Store bedding in a pillow case

3. Take scratches out of furniture with a walnut

4. Magnetic strip as storage behind vanity door

5. Upside down muffin pan for cookie bowls

6. Hull strawberries using a straw
