• Struggling with your shower cleanliness? Keep a bottle of shower sanitizer and a grout brush in the shower at all times. Use the grout brush if something pops up, and spray shower daily. This should greatly extend the time between deep cleanings.

• “I bought a television recently and didn’t realize until I got it home that there are NO buttons on the unit itself. It operates only through the remote control. So, I put some hook and loop tape on the remote, and also on the TV and the side table. That remote stays put, and I can always find it when I want to turn the TV off!” — I.J.M. in New York

.

• Hotel rooms can be germ paradises. Try sticking your TV remote inside of a plastic bag (you can use the one that comes with the ice bucket). Touch all you want; germs are trapped inside.

.

• Brooms get worn down with use. Be sure to remove clumps of hair and dust bunnies after use, and give it a dip in soapy water or a spray with the hose weekly (not straw brooms, though). Hanging a broom will give it a longer life.

• “After we replaced our kitchen knives with a nice block, we repurposed the magnetic strip to the garage, where it can hold a variety of tools and hardware.” — E.P. in North Carolina

.

• If you want to keep few bottles of beverage cold in your hotel room, use one of the trash bins lined with a bag that’s filled with ice. The actual ice bucket is typically too small to use as a cooler, and if you use the bathroom sink, where will you wash your hands?
