Several household items can be turned into hacks that can make our lives much more simpler. Here are a few brilliant home hacks that you should be aware of:

- Use Old Door Knobs As Towel Hangers
Think twice before throwing away those old door knobs because they could come in handy. You can use them as towel hangers in the washroom especially if you are short of towel hanger hooks.
Not only will they add value to the space, but they will also look stylish.
- Use Picture Frames As a Memo Board
Never forget an errand with an eye-catching DIY board. You can frame an attractive fabric or wallpaper then with the aid of a dry erase marker, write down reminders.
Additionally, you could also attach a marker to the frame to make it easier for you to use it.

You can use a tension for several purposes in different places to hang up the most frequently used items on your home. For example you can install a tension rod in the cupboard or in the bathroom sink and hang your most often used items such as gloves and sprayers there.
- Use an Iron to Clean Carpet Stains
Carpet stains should not be an issue anymore since you have a flat iron at home. After vacuuming the carpets, you can dampen spots with a moist towel dipped in some vinegar and water and use the iron to heat the stained spot. Continue doing this until all the stains have been lifted and the spot is clean.
