Tip of the week: Common items, unconventional uses

Corral your makeup brushes, untangle a knot

Here are some alternative uses for things you have around your home:

 

— Keep makeup brushes neat and gunk-free by stashing them, bristles up, in a clean toothbrush stand.

— Expand your clothing capacity in your closet by repurposing a soda-can tab. Slip one end over a hanger’s hook, then suspend a second hanger from the tab’s other end.

— Untangle a knot by sprinkling a bit of baby powder over the knot to help loosen it, and then use a pin to finish freeing it.

— Use a flowerpot’s saucer in the bathroom for storing the toilet plunger. It’s an easy way to collect drips.

— Create a “coaster” for a shaving-cream can with the top of a small sour cream, potato chip or other food container to end rusty rings on bathroom surfaces.
