17 Ways To Make Stuff Last As Long As Possible

  •  
    Placing a paper towel in with your salad lettuce will keep it fresh all week long. The paper towel will absorb the moisture, which is the culprit for wilting lettuce.
  •  
    Break your bananas apart. As an alternative, if you wanted to keep the bananas in a bunch, you could wrap the stems with aluminum foil.
  •  
    Keep your bread fresh with a celery stick.
  •  
    Make your candles burn longer by placing them in the freezer for 24 hours prior to using.The freezer hardens the wax, which slows the burning process.
  •  
    Put your cereal in the freezer to keep them from going stale.
  •  
    Don’t touch your cheese when you are cutting it. The bacteria from your fingers will make it grow moldy faster. Instead, when cutting a block of cheese, keep your hands over the plastic.
  •  
    Keep your laptop unplugged when not in use to ensure the battery lasts as long as possible.
  •  
    Make a bouquet of flowers last longer by adding a cupful of vodka. It'll keep bacteria at bay. Add a pinch of sugar, too, for nourishment. If you don’t have vodka, a cupful of bleach will also work.
  •  
    Keep your pantyhose from running by placing your hosiery in the freezer for 24 hours. Freezing actually strengthens the fibers, allowing the material to last more than a couple of wears
  •  
    When washing your jeans, turn them inside out and marinate them in vinegar before washing. This is especially important for dark jeans that you don't want to fade. Fill a sink up with water and add a cup of distilled white vinegar. Allow the jeans to marinate in for about an hour.
  •  
    You can sharpen your razor on a pair of jeans. Run the razor (away from you), along the length of a pair of old jeans, about 10-20 times. Now turn the razor and push the razor toward you another 10-20 times. Also, always remember to dry off your razor completely after using in the shower
  •  
    Mix your nice hand soap with water and dispense from a foam hand wash bottle.
  •  
    Cut your sponges in half. You can also spray them with a little vinegar to keep them fresh.
  •  
    To keep your hair color in longer, use an SPF. Mix one teaspoon of milky SPF 25 sunscreen and ½ cup of water and shake in a spray bottle. Spray into your hair before going out into the sun.
  •  
    Only use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste every time you brush your teeth. It does that same job as a long strip.
  •  
    Keep the colors in your clothes brighter by adding a pinch of salt to your laundry load.
  •  
    Double your butter by whipping it with equal parts water. Store it in an old margarine container. It makes an easy spread that’s half the calories. Just don't use it for baking.
