11 Genius Household Items That Always Seem To Come In Handy

Most people accumulate stuff that they never use. In every house in the land, there are clothes hanging in wardrobes that their owners will never wear.

However, not all the junk in your home is like this. In fact, there are a bunch of household items that seem to come in handy over and over again.

Squalene Oil

Take a look at the skincare serums on your rack: almost all of them contain squalene. But what is this magical ingredient?

It’s actually a type of moisturiser that works wonders on the skin. You can buy a bottle of it on its own, or get commercial preparations that have added ingredients, like vitamin C, retinoids, and resveratrol, a compound from red grapes.

If your skin ever feels dry and lifeless, reach for the squalene to perk it up again.

Water-Resistant Labels

Water-resistant labels come in handy all over the house, but particularly in the kitchen. If you’re one of those people who prefer to keep ingredients in attractive jars in the pantry, then you’ll love this idea.

All you need to do is print out labels once and then stick them to the relevant container. So, for instance, you might have an “oats” label for your porridge tub or “sage” for your sage shaker. Water-resistant labels firmly adhere to containers long term, even in humid environments, such as your kitchen.

Pet Hair Removers

Pet hair gets everywhere, particularly if you have a cat or dog who sheds. Fortunately, you can get genius pet hair removers from the pet store. At face value, these just look like inert blocks, but they contain technology that allows them to harvest all of the pet hairs in your carpet. Some patented designs are so good, you’ll think you’re dreaming. “Is there really that much pet hair in my rug?”

An Ice Tray With A Lid

Conventional non-lidded ice trays are a liability. You risk spilling water all over your freezer floor which can be tricky to get off once it freezes.

The solution to this is ice trays with lids. These are just the same as conventional versions but have a water-tight, snap-on lid.

Don’t buy a lidded ice tray unless it has a rubber seal running around the edge. This feature will help to keep water contained inside.

A Multi-Tool

Multi-tools come in handy way more than you’d think. It’s amazing just how often you need them for DIY repairs around the home.

Multi-tools are great for minimalists who don’t like the idea of lugging a toolbox around with them everywhere they go. Just make sure that you get one made of thick steel so that it lasts.

A Bag Light

If you are in the habit of carrying around large totes with your makeup, sunglasses, phone, purse, food and other items, bag lights can help. These switch on when they detect you’ve opened your tote, allowing you to see what you’re doing. This way, you’re not endlessly rummaging around whenever you need something.

Glasses Wax

What is glasses wax, you ask?

Essentially, it’s a substance that you rub on your nose to keep your glasses balanced on your head. It provides a little extra friction, stopping them from sliding down your face as you move around.

Dust Busters

If you have a dustbuster in self storage, it’s time to break it out. These helpful, lightweight devices are great in any situation you notice dust buildup.

What’s more, because they’re handheld, they’re helpful in all sorts of situations. Use them on your furniture, along your skirting boards, or in your airing cupboard.

Suction Tools

Insect bites are seriously annoying, and itchy. The reason for this is usually because they’ve left some sort of poison or substance in your skin.

The solution? Use a suction tool to pull it out. These mechanical handheld devices create negative pressure above the skin, drawing out any saliva, venom, or, heavy forbid, eggs.

Beeswax Polish

In the past, people used beeswax for just about everything. The substance was great for candles, food preparation, and as a base for other compounds.

Today, people use beeswax as a quick and easy way to make their antique furniture look better. With a quick polish, you can transform the way it looks from dull and drab, to sparkly and new.

Massage Slippers

Lastly, if you are somebody who has foot pain (or you’re on your feet all day), then you might want to use massage slippers. These wonderful objects have little raised nodules on the sole that actually rub the base of your feet as you walk.
