Curbly is an amazingly simple DIY Design Community website that is filled with DIY projects galore, everything from cleaning supplies to gardening to organization. It is also complete with tips for things such as how to maximize space to how to store toys and keepsakes. You have the option to follow them on Pinterest or sign up for their weekly newsletter sent directly to your email. I highly recommend either of these options…I do both.
Last week’s newsletter highlighted some out-of-the-box uses for household items such as olive oil, vinegar, dryer sheets, coffee grounds, and baking soda. As I was reading, I saw how olive oil can be used for stopping the squeaking that occurs as you close your doors. Have you ever tried to wake up early and have some time alone and your door squeaks during the entire door opening process? Or have your kids finally fallen asleep and you go to close their doors when the squeaking begins and their tiny eyes are awakened? This has definitely happened to me on more than one occasion. Therefore, trying this olive oil on the door hinges was put into action quickly. And to my great surprise, it worked!! Even my husband commented on its success more than once. Below is a link to these great ideas for items you already have in your home.
Enjoy your Tuesday and exploring all these amazing tips.
