10 everyday life objects you can use in different and unsuspected ways

Everyday objects can be used in so many ways!

Tips and Crafts

Everyday, we are surrounded by a multitude of objects that we call "ordinary". They have a specific purpose and we only notice them when we need them.

But among them, many are much more versatile than we might think!

As you can see, you can use these 10 objects differently!

  1. Powdered lemon drink

Instead of drinking lemonade, clean your dishwasher!

1. Sprinkle 1/4 cup (65 g) of lemon or orange drink in the dishwasher instead of your usual detergent. Be sure to put some on particularly rusty parts

2. Run the machine on the long cycle.

The citric acid in this powder will make your dishwasher shine.

2. A paper clip

Paper clips can be used outside of the office:

- Mark the meat during a barbecue. By sticking washed metal paper clips, you can easily separate your pork from your beef.

- Put a paper clip on the end of your scotch tape so you can always find it and take it off easily.

- If you place a paperclip under a button when you want to sew it and you remove it when finished, the button will not be too tight against the fabric.

These little rubber bands can be useful around the house.

  • To open a stubborn jar, put rubber bands around the lid for better grip.
  • Wrap a gift with rubber bands, instead of using a ribbon, to add a touch of originality.
  • Attach wobbly items to the rack of a dishwasher, so they don’t break.

7. Tin cans

Collect old tin cans to store pencils or cooking utensils. It's more environmentally friendly than buying pots at the store and a lot more original, especially if you keep the colorful labels!

You can also heat your food in the can, but you have to remove the paper.

8. A tennis ball

To relax your neck muscles and release the tension of work or stress - lie down on a flat surface and place a tennis ball under your neck. Stay for about 10 to 15 minutes.

Then, move the ball from side to side with your neck. This will stimulate the acupressure points on your neck and help your muscles rest by applying pressure to the “knots” made by physical or nervous tension.
