Surprising Outdoor Home Remedy Fixes!

Spring is here! If you haven’t already, now is the time to get your yard and deck in shape! Maybe your lawn has got a bald spot, or your patio furniture is looking weathered? Well, we have some quick home remedies that will get your yard looking its best!

The patio is the central part of any backyard. It’s where people gather around the bar-b-que. It may be the location you spend most of your summer enjoying the weather. Therefore your patio furniture should look good. Chances are the patio furniture will be the first thing to wear down since it is exposed to weather year round. Perhaps your furniture is just in need of a good buffing. One surprising trick for wood furniture is BEER! Yes, beer. Pouring flat beer onto a cloth and using it to buff the wood surface can revive the woods look. The alcohol in beer cuts through grime and will bring out the natural color of the wood.

Does you deck have mildew? Try spraying the surface with undiluted white vinegar. Let it sit an hour and then spray it off with a hose. Vinegar’s acetic acid will kill the mildew and mold spores.

Clean you grill with an onion. To get rid of the grime build up on you BBQ, heat up the grill for 10 minutes, turn it off then let it cool a bit. Then take a half onion and spray it with cooking oil. Take the onion and using the flat side, scrub the grill. The enzymes in the onion will breakdown the grime.

Fix that bald spot in your lawn with gelatin. Pour unflavored gelatin powder into a bowl (you’ll need about 6 oz. per square foot). Stir in cool water to achieve a ketchup like texture. Then stir in 2 table spoons (per every 6 oz.) of grass seed. Then sprinkle the mixture over the bald spot after loosening the top inch of soil with a hoe. Then sit back and watch the bald spot disappear!
