This month’s simple ways to make life easier!
1. GO WITH THE FLOW
Rub a candle along a sticky zipper for a smoother action. Alternatively, a dab of conditioner helps avoid sticky situations.
2. FEELS SAFE
Motion sensors can be set to send an alert when the front door has opened, letting you know when your big kids are safely home from school. Next-gen HD cameras can also be set to send a photo on entry, so you can see exactly who is there. Coming soon, register your interest at telstra.com.au/smart-home.
3. BE GONE
Use a walnut on wooden furniture and floors to conceal scratches and scuff marks.
4. HOT TIP
Making dinner and need to duck out of the kitchen? A dry wooden spoon placed across the top of a pot prevents pasta from boiling over as quickly.
5. GOOD MORNING
Take the punish out of your wake-up routine with Smart Power plugs. Switch on the lights or get the kettle boiling while you’re in the shower— without setting foot in the kitchen. Control it all from your mobile or tablet. Coming soon, register your interest at telstra.com.au/smart-home.
Baby wipes effortlessly remove white deodorant marks from dark fabric, make-up stains from clothing and even hair dye stains from skin after a messy DIY job.
7. COOL CHANGE
Need to chill that bottle of something special super-fast? Wrap it in sheets of wet paper towel and stow it in the freezer
for a cool tipple in around 15 minutes.
