6 New Uses for Everyday Items Around the House

Here are some great uses for some stuff you probably have laying around the house.  They come in handy.

Clear Nail Polish To Secure Screws

Nail polish works like an invisible glue, helping those sometimes loose screws to stay in their place. Another tip: If it’s too late and your screw is already lost, a small earring stud will hold it together until you’re able to replace the screw.

Clear Nail Polish To Secure Buttons

Just a dab will also keep button threads from unraveling. You can apply it as a prevention or to stop an already fraying thread in the case that you don’t have a sewing kit handy.

Makeup Brush To Clean In Between Keys

An old makeup brush is the perfect size to fit in between the keys on your keyboard and remove dust and small Doritos crumbs.

Rubber Band Latch Stopper

This rubber band trick keeps a door latch from opening; perfect for a baby’s room door that needs to be kept quiet, or if you are going in and out of a door and don’t have your hands free to turn the knob. Could be very useful on moving day!
