Household tips

Post your clever labor saving ideas here.

Here's mine.  The sock miracle.

Did you ever try to clean the enameled surface of your fridge because it had accumulated a layer of grease and dust, only to find that it just smeared around without coming off?  You use a cleaner designed just for that purpose, like Formula 409 or Fantastik, but it just sort of leaves a sticky mess and gums up your sponge.

Try using an old sock with the cleaner, instead.  The sock is porous and textured enough to absorb the grease.  Dispose of after use.  My kitchen needs cleaning.  Somehow pulling weeds seems more appealing to me lately.  I'm probably just sick of being in the house.

I personally use a product called Ultra Grime by Uniwipe. They're massive wipes that you can use for everything from cleaning floors to cleaning your tools. What's more, they contain Aloe so if you are leaving a job to go straight to the pub and there isn't a functioning wash area, you can use these to wash from your neck up and elbows down as well as run over you work clothes to bring them back to life.

There also great to use when siliconing.
Don't put off until tomorrow, what you can put off until the day after.

There is an exception to every rule, apart from this one.
