    Hack: If you've recently had lice and want to keep them away, use a homemade shampoo made of:
    -any kind of soap
    -lotion (plain)
    -mouthwash (with alcohol, minty flavor)
    Mix them well together, and lather well in hair. Let the DIY shampoo sit for about 5 minutes, then rinse with hot water! That's really it... it worked for me lmao

    • James Goodman
      James Goodman Year ago +1

      Liz For A Day putting baking soda on your mattress is a horrible idea, your never going to remove 100% of the baking soda. Remember that baking soda is very sharp on a microscopic scale so the residual powder will damage your mattress fibers and be driven in deeper with every use.

  • Heidi
    Heidi Year ago +47

    I'm starting to get a lot more skeptical about these tips... Most of them are using some "revolutionary cleaning supply" and then scrubbing really hard, then cutting to the shot of the sparkling item. I want to see how much of a difference the "hacks" make compared to the normal thing. Would wiping a window with carbonated water really be more effective than regular water?
    Obviously most of the dirty items shown in the video are staged and could be cleaned really easily with a wipe of a towel. Could an Alketzeltzer tablet really clean a poopy, sticky toilet, not just a toilet with some dirt and grass?

    • Sinking Feeling
      Sinking Feeling Year ago +1

      Heidi Kuang ok

    • Joe Vargas
      Joe Vargas Year ago +5

      Heidi Kuang Some of the stuff is useful, some are just useless alternatives. You can buy or make your own window cleaner for the same price as the carbonated water. The alkaseltzer tablets should actually help but only up to the water line.

    • James Goodman

      Isaac Contreras yup, most sparkling water is high in minerals for taste so when it drys it leaves white spots. Most of the suggestions in this video are either useless or do more harm then good.

    A lot of these hacks cost more than the actual commercial cleaners. For the price of 12 alkaseltzer tabs I could get 4 x 750ml bottles of toilet duck! And do you even know the price of mouthwash? A bottle of window cleaner is cheaper than a bottle of fizzy water and a spray attachment and it will last longer.

  • Dos Op

    The salt in the drain will corrode your pipes. Use baking soda instead to create a pressure to flush the pipes.

    • James Goodman
      James Goodman Year ago

      Dos Op first how many homes still have metal sewage lines? Also you know the pressure created will take the path of least resistance which is up and out of the drain not through the clog. Just use a commercially available drain cleaner and if that fails use a snake, more then that you probably need a plumber.

    Just a tip: don't pour boiling liquids into your pipes if they're made of plastic (like kitchen sink pipes often are), it will overtime melt small holes in the plastic and the pipes could start leaking (a plumber told me that).

    • IkeofCrimea
      IkeofCrimea Year ago
