You're at a friend's house when nature calls. So you take care of business, then flush the toilet -- and nothing happens. After a quick scan of the bathroom, you realise there's not a plunger or toilet brush in sight. Here's what you do.
Everyone loves a natural home-cleaning solution, not least because you've likely got the ingredients in your pantry already. Bicarbonate of soda and vinegar are two of the most common components and if you've ever seen a science fair volcano, you have a sense of why.
Toilet plungers are essential household tools you hope you'll never need to use. But in the case that you do, it might as well be a good one. Here's what you should look for if you're in the market for one.
Not looking forward to your shower giving an operatic performance every time you bathe? It's a pretty common problem -- showers that make an annoying high-pitched squeal when you run the water -- but you can probably fix it yourself.
It can take a while for water running from the tap to get hot. Yeah, you can wait around with your finger under the water, but it would be a lot easier if you could see when it's finally hot. This clever DIY temperature indicator lets you do just that.
