Creative Household Hacks

Revive stale bread: If you have a loaf of bread that's getting stale, then run it quickly under the tap to wet the crust and place it in a preheated oven for about ten minutes. The steam will refresh the inside and the oven will crisp the crust, making it almost as good as new.

Use shaving cream to prevent mirrors from fogging: After a hot shower, mirrors tend to fog. By applying a small amount of shaving cream before you take a shower, and then wiping it clean, you create a protective layer that prevents fogging.

White bread for glass clean-up: After breaking a glass and picking up the large pieces, press a piece of white bread over the area. The soft bread will pick up tiny, unseen shards.

Use ice cubes to remove furniture dents in carpet: If your furniture has left noticeable dents in your carpet, then melt an ice cube in each dent. The carpet fibers will absorb the water, swell, and bounce back - reducing the appearance of the dent.

Coffee filters for cleaning screens: The fine texture of coffee filters makes them excellent for cleaning screens on TVs, computers, and phones. Because they're lint-free, they will leave no residue.
