You’ve just travelled on a plane and now you face the anxious wait for your luggage to arrive in front of you on the carousel. It doesn’t matter if you boarded first, last; the process always seems completely random. This is probably because the process is random! If you’ve ever watched television series of what goes on in the baggage area of airports, you would know that workers randomly throw cases into a truck which is transported to the plane. We haven’t even mentioned how many cases are similar looking today! People usually have one of few brands, and they are often black or gray. There is an easy way to combat this, ribbons! If you tie a colored ribbon to your case, you will notice it straight away and it may save you some valuable time not waiting around.
Bad Smell From Your AC?
Every so often your AC might have some issues, it’s something that simply happens with age. Even though this may not be a long term solution, it is a great short term one. So if you’ve cleaned out the filters and there is still a smell, this might be one for you. For those hot days and nights we need to use our AC, so instead of blowing out unbearable smelly cold air, simply put a dryer sheet over the AC unit! These are scented and will cause your smelly air to become fresh and lovely! Obviously it depends on the type of dryer sheet that you choose, but you can have your air smelling like flowers or lavender in no time.
Leaky Trash Can?
There is nothing more annoying than when you put liquids in the garbage and they leak through the bag to sit at the bottom of the actual can. This not only makes a smell, but makes the bin sticky and gross, requiring a proper clean. Save yourself the hassle though! Did you know if you put a small pile of old newspaper at the bottom of the garbage can, it will easily absorb any leaky liquids. This is great news (ha-ha!) because your actual garbage can will avoid all those sticky liquids and you will save yourself much time on cleaning in the future.
