6 DIY Apartment Hacks Your Grandpa Could Do

CAN’T CALL MAINTENANCE?

Calling maintenance usually requires some kind of emergency like the A/C going out, toilet flooding, or ceiling leaking. However, in your well-lived space, a few things probably don’t look or act as new as they used to anymore.

Here are some tips to help you on the weekends and for those little pet peeves you want gone.

A Temporary A/C Fix

DON’T PUT THAT FAN BACK!

Picture this: It’s mid-July in Oklahoma and your A/C breaks on a Friday night…
Instead of going 3 days without air conditioning, freeze a few 2 liter soda bottles. Pepsi or coke – your preference. Once frozen, stick the frozen bottles in a bowl in front of a fan. Now, you can sit comfortably.

CAN’T CLEAN THAT SKILLET?

Sometimes a sponge just won’t do it. However, if you rub some coarse salt on the sticky area, your skillet will come out looking brand new. Your sponge though, not so much.

DIRTY DRIVEWAY?
