Broken glass pieces are sometimes scattered to an invisible size. It is important to clean these scattered and splashed broken glass in the best way possible. Otherwise, another accident or injury may result. First the large pieces are collected by hand and then the vacuum cleaner will pull all the glass pieces. Cotton can be used for broken glass that does ...

I'd like to point out that mops (and brushes) last longer and stay fresher if they are not resting on the business end. They spark more joy if you hang them up. Our mops and brushes come with a hole drilled in the handle for putting a string through, and we hang them out of the way, e.g. behind a door. Out in the garden I would hang my mop out of sight, ...

@Mordecai's answer has all the right methods for picking up the glass, all I would add is that a bright torch really helps to make shards of glass more visible on the floor. You need to keep moving the torch around, and it also helps if someone else stands back from the area and shines the torch over while you look; this creates lower angles that you can't ...

A piece of bread pressed onto the glass or on the spot where you think glass may be.

My first attempt would indeed be to inspect the wardrobes. If there's a continuous source of bad smell somewhere, you can throw all the fresh air in you want, but it will continue to come back. On the other hand, it can really take much time to expel bad smells which have been in a room for a long time. Especially if it is only a small window letting the air ...

Here’s some common household items that will help remove grease/oil stains from painted walls: 1. White vinegar. Mix one part white vinegar with one part hot water. Use a spray bottle to apply the solution to the grease. Allow it to set for several minutes and then wipe with a clean rag. Work in small areas and repeat as many times as necessary to get the ...

Cooking oil works well on some surfaces - that is, surfaces which are more or less immune to oil. Wood, metal, plastic. However, wall paint (or wallpaper) are porous and absorb the oil, which remains trapped. I personally used the cooking oil trick on a wooden door frame, and it worked like a charm. But the wood was protected with lacquer. Post-factum, I ...

Unless you have the perfect not-stick bath, soap etc will build up, so it is hygienic to clean the bath frequently with a soft non-scratch pad and bath cleaner. One possible reason why the bath retains hair and soap, is because the previous tenants used an abrasive pad. If so, the damage is done now. It is not your bath, so I would not recommend any serious ...

If you think that water doesn't wash all the hair and dirt down to the drain then the bathtub is actually doing a service to you, by not being slippery. Long hairs should be collected from the water before they have a chance to go down the drain, exactly for the purpose of keeping the drain from clogging. It depends what material the bathtub is made of. ...

You did not give me much to go on. Despite your dearth of detail, I lean toward a "one-way" mop disguise. I hope either of these two lifehacks satisfies your requirements for aesthetic in addition to nearly total anonymity to mop. Once disguised, the past mop is unrecoverable. First, using a 'rope' mop, prepare a mix of acrylic and epoxy to create ...

Which is worse, the loud construction work or the smelly room? My hack would be to try working in the original room with either a sound neutralizer / noise cancelling device, or loud music, perhaps with headphones.

Textiles like carpets, blankets and old clothing are like sponges for bad smells. So first of all clean out the closets. If you're not allowed to throw away the stuff in there, put it into big plastic sacks and close them as airtight as possible. If that's too much trouble, tape all the gaps between the doors of the closet shut with painters tape to trap the ...

The obvious way would the to thermally insulate the pipe. In this way, the warm air in the room does not come in contact with the cold pipe. I do not know if you could / should do this by yourself, for safety reasons. Please contact a specialized air-conditioning service for advice. If the unit is still under guarantee, call the service to fix it for you for ...

Gently scrape off the adhesive while you apply heat on the surface of your wall with hairdryer or heat gun. Then clean with like a baking soda paste & toothbrush. This has worked for me. My kids when younger put stickers on their bedroom wall, me trying to be the fum mom allowed it for a short time. Other things we've tried in the rentals: Things to try: ...
