It’s really hard to keep my home clean and tidy all the time with a busy family. I do enjoy cleaning up messes and cooking but toilet cleaning is one of my least favorite chores.I saw many tutorials on Pinterest and online and end up making toilet cleaning tablets with 3 natural ingredients without any harsh chemicals.
Baking soda:1 cup
Citric Acid:1/2 Cup
Dishwashing Detergent: 2 Tbs
Mix baking soda and citric acid together and remove lumps.
I used my favorite Dawn detergent and mix it well .combine everything together.
Use an ice-cube tray and press the mixture firmly to make a shape of tablet.leave it overnight at room temperature.
I used these tablets mostly at night-time to fizz and disinfect my toilet bowl.Just drop a tablet, let it fizz and flush.It cleans and removes odors.
If you remember I showed this super cute table weights here.Honestly speaking I didn’t buy it for this purpose never intended to use them as table weights. I just wanted to have them because these are super cute.I thought let be more practical and make a good use of these adorable clips.
I bought magnets from a craft store and You may find it easily at dollar stores.I used my all-time favorite super glue E-6000. I glued the magnet to my table clips and waited 2 hours.That’s it…Isn’t so simple and easy …doesn’t need any advanced skills!!
These are super cute and has a clip as well so I could use it on my fridge or magnetic board and hang my pictures with the clip.

Yarn love continues….Yes, I admit, I wanted to knit like my mom and I tried and got failed. After, I thought( or should I say wanted )to make/ DIY a wall hanging or tapestry with the yarn I already have!!
It’s cheap and easy but a time taking project.Let’s start!!
A Dowel(From any craft / Home Hardware store)
Yarn of your choice colors( I used off-white, Orange, and Green)
Start with the base color I used off-white and cut it to the desired size. Now fold 4 equal lengths in half and drape it over the dowel.Pull the knot and make it tighten /secured.I made almost 26 equal lengths of base colored yarn.
Step 2 is little tricky, I used two gold ring and hang it with a string of yarn in the middle.I used orange yarn and tied the same four strings of (shorter ) length and make a knot with the same I did with base color.
Make a side knot to attach both rings and continue till You fill the space.I used almost same 10 knots with same (4×2)method.
I Finished the project by using Green yarn, cut the excess length. You can even cut diagonal, not a hard and fast measuring rule.
Viola!!!love how it turns out.I used the yarn according to my decor, you can use colors of your choice.It easy and affordable but definitely a statement piece in my living room.
Winter brings dry fruits, dry skin and sweaters.I don’t like Canadian winter much but love sweaters,shawls and cardigans. I am OK to go for neutral and warm tones for myself but for kids, A Big NO!!!I always want bright and fun colors for them, but it’s really hard to find winter stuff if your kid is tween.
This Turtle neck sweater was so boring and dull for a Tween girl..I thought to give it a quick lift and make it trendy.You can update your outdated boring outfit/ sweatshirt by adding some colorful pom-pom in just 10 minutes.so You can say its a “10 minute Challenge”…so Get ,set and GO!!
If you remember I used these pom-pom here.I thought lets give this boring turtle neck sweater into fun and colorful make over.
It’s so easy ,I would suggest you to stitch them.You may use glue but personally I don’t waste time that comes out after a use.Her sleeves were little bit bigger than her size so I folded and over lapped it.Now stitch a pompom with matching needle and thread.Make a pattern and that’s it!!
Isn’t it so easy ,make a pattern of your choice .Use some funky or sober or even fluorescent pom-pom , make to love it more.
I always used to hate laundry when I was back home.Here, we have automatic machines fortunately but still…I am lazy….. folding and ironing both are time taking tasks.A family with three active kids, My laundry basket is always full even a minute after I finished my last load.
I was looking for the laundry folder but couldn’t find in store anywhere affordable.I checked online and it’s almost $20 plus shipping. After watching some tutorials online, I made one…A simple and cheap…Let’s start!
I got sink Mats from the dollar store and make one under 10 (Less).I bought 6 sink mats and duct tape.The size of the mat is approximately 9 inches x 12 inches.
Place sink mats in order to 2×3, I attached the duct tape in order like the picture below.Make sure you tape individually so the mat can be foldable, follow the number and directions.
It’s really easy to make, just use a strong tape and that’s it, your very own laundry folder is ready.
Place shirt in the middle of the mat, then fold right side first. Now flip the left side, and finally the 5th mat to complete the fold.Its so easy even your kids can do it.My 5-year-old Bilal love to help.
You can make with card boxes, you need 6 same sized cardboards.Cut the desired equal size and that’s it.
See how easy to fold shirts in seconds, It took almost less than half time I normally spent without it.Make one and ask your kids to fold their own.I am sure you will love and have a huge relief after.Make one and Enjoy your most hated chores (Like me).
