Awesome Winter Home Hacks


1. Use Bargain tin foil and place it behind your radiator or space heater to reflect heat better into the room.

2. Turn ceiling fans to rotate clockwise to help circulate heat trapped near the roof.

3. Fill a spray bottle with 2/3 parts vinegar and 1/3 part water and spray icy car windows to de-ice them without scraping.

4. Find drafts in your home by slowly walking around while carrying a candle. When it flickers, you know where the draft is coming from. These can be sealed using bubble wrap, foam filler or caulking.
