There are times when you start looking closer at your furniture or clothes, going something like “where did that scratch come from?”, and if you’re like my mom, who wants everything to be in perfect order, one simple scratch on a wooden table is just as bad as a huge crack in the middle of it. So now she wants you to get out of the house or buy a new table, but there’s a third option here – fix the damn scratch! And of course, I’m not just talking about furniture. As you’ll see in a second, many of the things you’d trash can actually be saved with a little bit of household magic, no special skills required!
Here are 8 clever ways to make old things look new again!
1. Mayonnaise for wood
Condensation can be a real chore, especially in summer, when all you want to drink is something really cold. Those white spots can be easily fixed by rubbing mayo on them. Easy as pie!
2. Toothpaste for glass
Put some toothpaste on your glasses, your watch, or your phone screen, rub it in, then wash the paste away, to make your glasses look all shiny and new!
3. Mustard for copper
Got an old copper bracelet lying around? Put some mustard on it and wait a few minutes. Now you’re one damp cloth away from seeing the shiniest copper accessory ever!
