Home Trick # 1:
Sink drain clearing
A single cup of vinegar or salt and one of baking soda should be poured regularly at a rate of one cup for every two liters of boiling water.

Home Trick # 2:
Leaky faucet
If the faucet drips and at that moment you cant repair it, there is a homemade trick that eliminates that sound which sucks, especially at night. A string should be attached from the tap to the drain. In this way you will not hear the annoying noise of the drops, as the water will slide silently along the string.

Home Trick # 3:
Easy to put on and remove faucets
If a faucet needs to be placed, an infallible home trick is to grease the nuts with a little petroleum jelly which makes it easier to screw them together.  We recommend that if you dont know much about plumbing to just call a professional instead.

Home Trick # 4:
Remove and replace the silicone in the bathtub
To avoid problems, the silicone seal of the bathtub must be repaired every year. To do this, the previous sealing with ether or oil must be removed and scraped with a sharp blade until it is completely detached. The area is then scrubbed, allowed to dry and the new layer of silicone replaced.
