IF you’ve ever struggled while trying to open a plastic package that seems to have the sides welded shut, you might want to read this.
A woman has revealed that you DON’T need scissors to open them.
Taking to TikTok, a woman who goes by the name Tori revealed that there’s a proper way of opening plastic packages: you simply pop them open.
As she showed off a makeup product that was enclosed in the plastic package, she simply grabbed it by the middle and squeezed hard.
The back of the package popped wide open seamlessly.
Along with her new hack, she wrote: “The years I’ve wasted using scissors on these packagings!”
Not only have you been opening your plastic packages wrong, but you’ve also been leaving your home dirty by vacuuming it improperly.
ADJUST THE HEIGHT
One function that you might not be making the most use of is the fact that you can adjust the height of your vacuum attachment.
Because carpets are typically taller than your typical hard surface, it’s critical that you adjust the vacuum attachment’s height for the area you’re cleaning.
“Some vacuums do this automatically. But if yours doesn’t, make sure to take the time to make the proper adjustments. It will make a huge difference in the cleanliness of your home’s different surfaces,” Rachel Kuchle, marketing director for fabric care and protection experts Fiber-Seal Systems, said.
VACCUM IN THE SAME PATTERN
Vacuuming your floors or carpets in any direction you like will not get them as clean as they could be.
Instead, you should be keeping to a certain pattern.
“The best approach is to vacuum in one particular direction back-and-forth, moving across from one side of the room to the other,” cleaning expert Sean Parry from Neat Services said.
“Once that’s complete, then turn 90 degrees and use the same approach. This means that the vacuum’s suction power will pick up dirt on all four sides of the carpet fibers.”
VACCUM SURFACES MORE THAN ONCE
We know that discovering you have additional cleaning to do can be aggravating, but if you want your carpets to be pristine, you should give them a second look.
According to the editor of Expert Home Tips, Joanne Archer, carpets, in particular, need to be vacuumed twice.
Because carpet threads are twisted in different directions, you’ll miss a lot of dust and dirt if you merely vacuum in one direction.
EMPTY IT AFTER A FEW USES
If you’ve got a bagless vacuum, we know that sometimes the thought of consistently emptying it can be draining, doing so regularly will make the world of a difference.
Instead of waiting until the machine is overflowing, make a habit of emptying it after every couple of uses.
Doing so will help improve the efficiency of the vacuum and make your life that much easier.
It is important that you take your time when vacuuming, as this allows your machine to clean more effectively.
Going fast often leads to lots of dirt and dust getting left behind.
