26 Genius Life Hacks That Will Make Your Life Easier

by Mehdi BAH

We don’t always have to spend money on expensive specialty cleaners or to buy new things. With these life hacks we make your life a little bite easier – and more economical.

Life Hack N°1: Lemon Juice Against Odors

Never soak wooden boards in water or put them in the dishwasher to remove odors! The wood deforms and when it dries it becomes brittle. Germs and bacteria nest in the cracks. Instead, rub the wooden boards after washing them with a cut lemon, which you have briefly dipped in salt. This removes kitchen smells.

Life Hack N°2: Alcohol As A Stain Remover

70% alcohol removes perfume and lipstick stains on all fabrics, but also bloodstains on silk. Put the alcohol on a piece of cotton wool and use it to dab the stain. In the case of dyed fabrics, check for colorfastness in a concealed area beforehand. Then wash as directed.

You can get rid of even the most stubborn stains!
