A Chilly Solution
Everyone has a freezer in their home but there are more ways to utilize this chilly appliance aside from keeping your foods frozen! Low temperatures eliminate bugs, bacteria, and odors, as well as being gentle on clothing and home goods.
Keeping It Fresh
Springtime is here and if you have leftover seeds from planting a new spring garden, preserve your seeds in the freezer! An airtight container will keep the seeds fresh until next season, just make sure to allow the time to thaw before planting.
No More Paper Cuts
After a few hours in the freezer, an envelope will open easily without ripping into pieces! Simply place the unopened envelope in a plastic bag and freeze it for one to two hours. Then, open it immediately with a knife. You can re-set the adhesive with moisture once the envelope has once again reached room temperature.
Those Pesky Mites
Dust mites can ruin a sweater or bedding in no time, but they won't survive in the brisk temperature of your freezer! Place the item in a large plastic bag and freeze overnight. Wash the fabrics in the morning and all traces of dust mites will be gone.
Cling Gone Wrong
When plastic wrap won't seem to stick to anything but itself, place it in the freezer for a few minutes. The chilly temps will help to remove some of the clings and prevent it from bunching up!
No More Rips
You can extend the life of your pantyhose by freezing them! First, wet the pantyhose and wring them out. Then place them in a plastic bag and freeze overnight to help keep the fibers right and prevent runs.
Let It Burn
The life of a candle is significantly extended with the help of your freezer! Before you burn a new candle, place in the freezer for a day. When you chill the wax, it will cause it to burn slower and even prevent dripping.
The freezer is a the best spot to debug a small wooden antique. Since many wooden antiques have woodworms lurking inside, a few weeks in the freezer will kill the woodworms and their eggs.
Just For Jeans
If you're nervous that the washing machine will shrink or damage your favorite pair of jeans, turn to the freezer instead. Place your jeans in a canvas bag and freeze overnight to kill bacteria from skin smells that causes odors.
Keep It Cold
The artic-like temperature of your freezer is helpful to many items in your home! A few frozen hours can do wonders on eliminating bacteria and other harmful things hiding around the house.
