NONSLIP RUG You know how it is with kids—they wriggle, they run, they end up facedown on the floor crying their eyes out. No matter how much you supervise their playtime, falling over is a given, but you can do your best to avoid it. If you have rugs and doormats that are devoid of a grippy underside, don’t splurge on an expensive nonslip mat cut to size—simply apply some lines of acrylic sealant (the kind you use in the bathroom) to the underside of the mat or rug, and it should stay put. If you have to buy the sealant, you’re now set up to re-seal the bathtub and sink when the time comes—you’re a regular DIY expert!

Remove the upper third of your chosen bottle (it should be big enough to house your phone and the charger wire), but keep the back of the bottle intact. Next, cut a hole in the back big enough to allow your charger plug to fit through. You now have a hanging plastic pouch for your phone. IN-FLIGHT SMARTPHONE TV If you’re on a ten-hour flight to Tobago for the family vacation and your plane doesn’t have seat-back TVs, fret not. There’s a simple solution that will keep you and your tribe happy. Put your phone in a plastic bag and attach it to the seat in front of you.

Drill a couple of holes at the bottom of the container to stop the vacuum ever forming. The bag will now lift out with ease. SMALL ITEM—RETRIEVAL SYSTEM Where do all those earring backs, contact lenses, and Scuba Steve accessories go when you drop them? I’ll tell you where: they’re still there, it’s just that you’re just too blind to see them. When you drop something small and can’t find it, grab your vacuum cleaner and a pair of old tights. Slip the tights over the vacuum nozzle and fix in place with an elastic band.
