Leather shoes require high maintenance since every spot on them is visible. However, if they get dirty and you don’t have a shoe polish with you, there’s no need to get desperate.

People often complain about how wooden floors and furniture are hard to maintain. Many of us often use expensive polishing products, but there is a DIY solution for that.

If you don’t have a special attachment for vacuuming holes and narrow spaces, it’s simple to make one at home. Just cover the hole of your vacuum cleaner pipe with plastic wrap or a plastic bag and tie it with a rubber band. Make a small hole, insert the plastic straw, and make cleaning easier than ever.
