Hey Everyone!

The most versatile desk ever... seriously you HAVE to see this

Do you have old T-shirts and socks?

Do you wonder what you'll do with those tattered sheets and towels?

Turn them into rags, and leave your paper towels in the dust. I find that cloth absorbs spills better than paper, anyways; and not only does this give you a use for otherwise useless items, you'll save a bountiful bundle on cleaning supplies.

Hint 1: Make your home smell like heaven

It's so simple to make your home smell wonderful.

Just put two caps full of vanilla extract in a coffee cup, then place it in the oven at 300 degrees for one hour.

Within twenty minutes the whole house smells like Heaven. It's actually a common realtor trick.

Men, look better, AND feel better, all with one undershirt.

Hint 2: Do you wash your shower liners and/or curtains?

If you use a plastic liner or washable plastic shower curtain, wash on highest water level with regular amount of detergent and two to three bath towels for cleaning agitation.

Hang to dry or put into the dryer on low heat or air only. If your shower curtain is fabric or decorative, wash following the instructions on its care label, or pop it into the dryer on air or fluff with a fabric softener sheet to freshen.

'Go Green' Hint: Turn off the tap

It’s an all-too-common habit to leave the tap running while washing your face, brushing your teeth, doing the dishes, and so on.

Sure, the tap might get a little soapy if you turn it off while lathering your hands, but think of it like turning off a light when it’s not being used—it’s simple, brings no inconvenience, and saves a lot of resources in the long run.
