5 Mum Hacks

Just a few that I have figured out for myself –
Net Laundry Bags – Genius Old Lady Gadget!

1. Net bags! Ok so bear with me I know this sounds like I’ve lost the plot. But when you’re washing 15 Velcro bibs a day, and god knows how many teeny tiny socks you get really sick of the carnage. The Velcro attached itself to everything and rips clothes apart – no matter how much you stick them together those buggers come undone! The teeny tiny socks, whilst adorable, also seem to wedge themselves into the crevices of the washing machine door and don’t get washed properly. Soooo net bags! Awesome awesome inventions.

Hanging Wardrobe Thingies – What are they actually called?


 2. Wardrobe hanging shelf thingies – mine are from Ikea and I luffs them! Means I can keep all my sons clothes in one easy to organise and reach place. When half asleep, covered in – insert baby bodily fluid here – or in a rush I can easily reach in and grab what I need as it’s all nicely organised and easy to keep up!

3. Gorilla Buckets – I honestly have no idea where my trusty yellow bucket came from but it’s a life saver. Got a poopey onesie that needs soaking? Gorilla bucket! Got a load of toys that need storing? Gorilla bucket! Got a load of washing to hang out but the washing basket is buried under a mountain of clean laundry you’re pretending is invisible? Gorilla bucket! I could go on all day!

Here we find my Gorilla Bucket in its natural habitat!
4. Silicone mats – not the cheapest really but I use them for everything as they are so easy to wipe down, they protect whatever is underneath and seriously good at holding spills! Underneath the prep machine where water was ruining the wooden top. On the high chair for early stages of weaning. Under the dogs food bowls on the carpet. Everything!!
5. Broken or smashed Tupperware – got an old lunchbox where the corner has smashed or a lid chipped or generally got a hole in it? It’s the perfect dummy storage! I found storing them in airtight containers made them a bit smelly. But just keeping them in a tub they attract dust like nothing on earth. The solution? Broken holey non air tight Tupperware!
Silicone Mats – Literally hold everything in place!
Now I’m aware that some of these aren’t necessarily hacks and more boring tips lol but I’m damned proud of myself for figuring these out! Especially with Mum brain!
Have you got any you want to brag about so that I can steal admire?
