Are you tired of food going bad too quickly? Do you find yourself feeling overwhelmed by messes you don’t know how to clean up? Here are some life-saving kitchen hacks that will simplify everything for you!


Over-Ripening Bananas

To slow down the browning process of a bunch of bananas, stick a piece of plastic wrap around the stems of the bunch!


Aging Strawberries

Do you want to keep your strawberries fresh for longer? Soak them in vinegar, rinse, dry, and regrigerate them. 


Wilting greens

One fantastic way to keep your lettuce nice and crisp is to put it in a glass container, cover with a paper towel, and wrap the entire thing with plastic wrap. 


Grimy garbage disposal

Here’s a three-ingredient recipe for a homemade cleaning remedy made entirely of things you probably already have in your cabinets. Pour one cup of a baking soda, vinegar mix into the drain, and let it fizz up. Pour one cup of hot water on top of it. Rinse with the faucet, and that’s it! 


Homemade disinfectant

Mix one part water, and one part vinegar in a spray bottle. Add citrus peels and shake. Then you’re ready to clean your home surfaces!
