Nowadays, the internet is literally crazy about life hacks and this is perfectly understandable because they allow us to save money and time. There are some tips that seem to be crazy in the beginning, but they actually work great. Could you ever imagine that it would be easy to clean a toilet with Kool-Aid and that you could iron clothes with vinegar?
We at Bright Side are in a constant search of ideas that can make your lives significantly easier. So, here is the result of our work: simple life hacks that will allow you to clean your house faster.
1. A life hack that will reduce the consumption of detergent
If you are out of liquid soap or you just want to save money, this tip will save both your money and your time. Make a hole in your dish sponge and put some gritty soap inside. You can read more about this life hack here.
2. Kool-Aid can clean a toilet just as well as a special detergent.
Kool-Aid and other similar drinks contain lemon acid which is a perfect natural detergent. This is a great alternative way to clean your bathroom and toilet.
3. Micellar water whitens the soles of sneakers.
4. Whiten and disinfect cutting boards in the kitchen.
Mix the following ingredients: 3-4 tbsp of baking soda, 1 tbsp of detergent, and 1-2 tbsp of hydrogen peroxide. Put the paste on the surface and wait for a few hours (you can leave it overnight). Read more here.
5. Toothpaste can replace special tablets for the toilet.
If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on special toilet tablets, you can use a toothpaste tube. One pack will last for 3 months, the toilet will smell minty, and the soda in the toothpaste has a whitening effect. Just make a few holes in the tube and put it in the toilet cistern.
6. A spray that irons out clothes just as well as an iron.
Mix 1 tsp of hair conditioner, 1 tsp of vinegar, and 2 glasses of water. Spay the mixture on your clothes, iron them with your hands and wait until they dry. See a full description of the tip here.
7. Cat litter removes unpleasant smells.
Put a little cat litter in your trash can or put it inside a thing you want to remove an unpleasant smell from. It can be anything from shoes to mats — usually things that are difficult to wash. So, place cat litter + the object inside a plastic bag and leave it for several days. Read more here.
8. A trap for fruit flies
In a house where there is fruit, these insects reproduce lightning fast. And a simple trap can help you defeat them: put any fruit into a cup, cover it with plastic film, and make a hole in the film. The flies will be able to get in, but won’t be able to get out. The author describes the method in detail here.
9. You can hide nail holes with a piece of soap.
Take a piece of white soap and rub it on the necessary spot in circular motions. The nail marks will be almost impossible to detect. You can find a lot of photos and a detailed description here.
10. A rubber band will limit the expense of liquid soap.
A rubber band will cut down on the amount of liquid soap you use. Here is the blog of the inventive housewife who designed this life hack.
11. Hairspray and a rubber glove will help to remove pet hair from furniture.
Put some hairspray on a rubber glove and touch your couches, armchairs, and carpets — all the places that it is very hard to remove pet hair from. The author describes this method here.
12. Sponges keep vegetables fresh for a longer time.
If you put dish sponges in the section for fruit and vegetables, they will absorb all the moisture and smells and the foods will stay fresher for a longer time. Read more here.
13. Alka-Seltzer removes the stains from tea and coffee cups.
Put a pill in a cup of warm water, wait a few minutes, and wash the cup. You can read about the tip here.
14. You can keep sauces in an egg carton.
This is great life hack for those who hate to shake the leftovers from sauces bottles. If you keep them upside-down in empty egg cartons, you won’t have to shake them.

This is a quick way to make your clothes look as good as new: sandpaper can substitute for a special device for removing fuzz balls. Read more about this life hack here.

Research Says That People Who Blush Are More Generous and Trustworthy
Some people feel uncomfortable when they blush, because they believe that this reaction of their body makes them appear timid and insecure. However, the reality is very different, because blushing can make us look more sincere and trustworthy to other people.
Today, we at Bright Side would like to tell you why blushing is not a sign of weakness, as many used to think.
Humans are the only ones that blush.
Humans are the only species known to blush, according to the findings of Darwin. After observing the gestures of monkeys, while conducting his studies on evolution — he defined this reaction as “the most peculiar and the most human of all expressions,” that probably happens because of a social defense mechanism that humans create against feelings like guilt or shame.
It makes you more attractive to the opposite sex.
The truth is that, although it could be a social defense mechanism that speaks to our discomfort, we are more attractive when our cheeks begin to turn pink. This gesture reflects a bit of vulnerability, and it’s for that very reason that it also creates a sense of intimacy that is striking to the opposite sex. In addition, it makes us look radiant, which is why, when putting on makeup, we apply pink powder on our cheeks.
People who blush are more trustworthy.
According to a study that has been published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, people who blush easily are people who are considered to be trustworthy and more generous, compared to those who don’t react in the same way. The researchers of this study also claim that other forms of moderately expressing embarrassment and social vulnerability are true signs of virtue, since it’s not possible to reproduce these reactions voluntarily.
Other gestures that reveal our emotional state
In a series of experiments, 60 college students were videotaped recounting embarrassing moments. The results indicated that blushing generates trust in other people and that’s why we shouldn’t try to hide it. This investigation includes people who react with gestures like a downward gaze, covering their face, laughing involuntarily, and blushing at the slightest provocation.
Why we blush when we feel embarrassed
Our face turns red because when we are in an embarrassing situation, the body releases adrenaline, which is what causes the redness of the skin, as it increases the blood flow to the blood vessels. This process is linked to our sympathetic nervous system and, for this reason, we can’t control it. We can also feel our heart rate speed up, our breathing increase its frequency, and in some people it can cause them to start sweating.
When it comes to blushing, it’s impossible to lie.
Blushing is something that we, human beings, are unable to avoid. It’s a set of involuntary bodily functions that are unleashed when we are exposed to a situation that embarrasses us, although not always in an unpleasant way. But it always shows that something matters to us and that, if we’ve done something wrong, we do have the desire to fix it. Because of this, this reaction is linked to honesty. So, if you see your partner blushing, you should believe in what your eyes are seeing.
Do you blush very often? Do you find it embarrassing or is it something that doesn’t worry you too much? We’d love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below.
