A Hack A Day: 7 Things You Didn’t Know Your Common Appliances Could Do

We all love appliances and products that seamlessly fit in to our fast-paced lives to make life easier. Imagine an appliance that is able to do more than what it was designed to do. Here, we present to you seven hacks you didn’t know your common appliances could do. We have a hack for each day of the week, making sure you have something new to try out each day!

It’s a Monday, you’re tired and not in the mood to slave in the kitchen. Why not use your iron to make a grilled cheese sandwich? Pack your bread with cheese, and wrap it in foil. After a few minutes of ironing on medium-high on each side you have yourself a delicious sandwich.

Tuesday signals a turning point in the week and you realise time is ticking – save time spent waiting for clothes to dry by using a high spin setting on your washing machine so that as much water as possible is removed from your clothes.

Wednesdays are for trying weird things! You’ve been meaning to get that gum of your shoe – so stick your shoe in the freezer for a couple of hours. The gum will chip off the sole much more easily.

Thursdays are for quenching your thirst and what better way to get your thirst quenched than making a quick and easy smoothie. Don’t fret over cleaning your blender; once you’re done using your blender, throw in two cups of warm water, and some dishwashing liquid, put the lid back on, and switch the blender on.

Fridays are for fun! You’ve probably been looking forward to streaming new films. Forget stressing about getting up to get the remote, you can use smartphones as remote controls for everything from computers, TVs, and Soundbars!

It’s Saturday and you might’ve noticed grime in your microwave. If you steam clean your oven with a cup of water, some tablespoons of vinegar, and a chopped-up lemon you can cut down time shifting stubborn grime.

Sunday mornings warrant a quick house clean up. Vacuums are one way to make the process quicker. To avoid getting scuff marks on your walls, use some masking to tape up the sides of your vacuum. This way, you can work faster without worrying about messing up your walls and doorways as you go.
