Life Hacks by CWS:
Our top tricks for making the world a cleaner, greener, and safer place.
Out of stain remover? No problem — use a piece of chalk to get rid of even the most serious spills. Don't have carpet cleaner handy? Don't worry — use that vodka that’s been sitting around since last year’s holiday party. Here are our sneakiest secrets, tricks, and tips for making life easier, safer, cleaner and more fun. On top of that, CWS Life Hacks often provide a greener solution to a problem, making use of simple, non-toxic products that we already have at home. So are you ready to roll up your sleeves and life-hack with us? Let’s make the world smile and sparkle a bit brighter.
LIGHTING A MATCH
It is the most human thing in the world, and yet nobody likes to leave unpleasant smells behind after going to the toilet. Sometimes home remedies work best. Just light a match.
TOILET PAPER TRICK
To help children use only the paper they really need, simply mark a line on the wall showing up to where the toilet paper can be pulled.
STOP WASTING SOAP
Simply wrap a rubber band around the dispenser neck and it will no longer be able to be pressed down so deeply.
TAKING SHORTER SHOWERS
If you turn off the tap in the shower whilst lathering, you can save around twelve litres of precious water per minute.
Just collect green, red, orange and yellow leaves. Then use a hole punch to make holes in the leaves and your environmentally friendly confetti is ready.
