I m a big fan of using cordless drills to speed up tasks whenever possible, and this trick from The Manly Housekeeper takes the idea to a new level. Just mod the top of a typical hand-held scrubber with a bit attachment, snap the assembly together, and get to work. The video shows you how the final product works, but the full step-by-step (complete with photos) is at the link below. It s actually pretty clever, since you don t have to keep the drill around to use it—you can still use the brush by hand if you want, and attach it to the drill when you know you need to get the…

Personally, I have always used rubbing alcohol 91% to clean my keyboards and other peripherals. Some cotton wool balls, some cotton swabs (the kind you use to clean your ears with, but know you shouldn t) and some gentle rubbing will pretty much remove anything off of your keyboard (nothing escapes the wrath of rubbing alcohol). Use the cotton wool balls to rub your keys in a circular motion to remove remnants of potato chips and whatever else is causing gunk build up on your keyboard. Only use small amounts of rubbing alcohol at a time, you don t want to soak the wool in it…

The word hack is synonymous with the image of tech wizards sitting on their laptops trying to break into the FBI servers, steal celebrity photos from the iCloud and listen to voicemails.

They’ve taken the internet by storm and some of the life hack videos on YouTube have over 10 million views. So what is a life hack?

Life Hacks for cleaning Headlights

Over time your car s headlights haze or fog over due to sand, grit, and other debris literally sandblasting the headlight over the years. Defogging your car s headlights will improve both the light s appearance and function. Buying a wet-sanding defog kit works well, but you can also do the job with denatured alcohol and some elbow grease. Defogging headlights consists of removing the scratches that have been sandblasted onto the surface of the headlight. You can do this either by wet-sanding the surface or using denatured alcohol to strip away and polish out the scratches…

In my experience, brushes are better for maintenance shining , where you just want a quick touch-up. For a high shine, I ve always found a rag to be more effective. You can use just about any soft, lint-free cloth, but my favorite was old t-shirts. Polish with a back-and-forth motion of the cloth at high speed. In addition, once you have it mostly done, using a bit of water helps give it a nice glossy coat. Normally I d just dampen the cloth/rag a bit and keep the same polishing motion as before. This is how I was taught to do it upon joining the military, and I haven t found…

That s right, vodka can be used as a way to clean your mattress, which is often an overlooked task, even though you sleep—i.e., sweat—on it every night. The alcohol kills odor-causing bacteria while it also disinfects the mattress—unlike cleaning sprays that often only mask smells with a scent. Not to mention a cheap 750-ml bottle…

We take the process in two steps: First, the oven itself, then the glass window on its door.

The Way We Do Anything is the Way We Do Everything. When I first heard this phrase 17 years ago, it took a few moments to really sink in. I thought to myself: that makes no sense; I’m totally together when it comes to my relationships, and my business is thriving. And then it hit me. In typical fiery Aries fashion, I can work myself into a frenzy to get something done at work, procrastinate like crazy, and be quick to jump to conclusions if something or someone seems to upset the apple cart of my livelihood. But in my mind, business was only one area of my life, and my real…

We have a closet in my house that defies designation. It holds an impressive collection of obsolete electronics, board games, sheets, a few loose appliances, and pantry goods. The closet door doesn t shut, so great is my bounty of mismatched trash. I asked my house cleaner, Misty, for help rearranging it. Early in the process, she found an ancient bag of dried lentils. What s this? I sighed. Those are part of my husband s apocalypse-survival rations. Just in case.Why are they in with the sheets and towels? I shrugged. Small house. Where else you gonna keep your apocalypse…
