Prepare “one-second” lemonade
Nothing is better on a hot summer day or for a quick cocktail, than lemonade cubes. What are those you ask? They are magic and this is how you make them:
- Take fresh lemon juice;
- Sugar to your taste;
- Make the mixture strong, since it’s going to be diluted with water;
- Cut the lemon wedges in small pieces;
- Freeze the mixture with wedges in an ice cube tray.
Now every time you want a refreshing drink — grab a couple of cubes from the freezer, dunk them in water and have a delicious homemade lemonade.
Use Velcro to store needles and other small things.
As much as Velcro gets to be used in fashion it is usually overlooked as a homeowner’s little helper. With double sided Velcro you can make any surface into a storage of sorts. And if you are into sewing your own clothing — make it a “pin cushion” — just take a piece of Velcro and put your needle through its little loops. It will not only secure them in one place, but also potentially prevent somebody from stepping on a loose needle.
