Polish your shoes with a banana peel: A banana peel can do wonders to polish your dirty shoes even if you do not have a polish. Just rub the inside of the peel on your shoe like a polish and rub it with a soft cloth after that. You will have a better shine than a shoe polish, we guarantee.

Make your own aftershave at home: These three simple ingredients at home will help you make your own aftershave at almost no cost, that too really effective and natural. Here is how you can do it! Take half cup cucumber, add 4tbsp mint extract and mix it in half cup water. Blend, strain, microwave and refrigerate.

Use ice cubes to remove wrinkles: Hate ironing? Toss your clothes in the dryer along with a few ice cubes to get the wrinkles out. Set your dryer to 15 minutes. While the ice cubes melt, the steam helps your clothes straighten up beautifully.
