Nail polish remover is a girl's best friend. It can be used not only for its main purpose but also for a bunch of other uses around your house. This product can be used for cleaning different items and surfaces. Here, I've prepared a short list of other uses of nail polish remover most of which emphasise on it's cleaning powers. The 100 percent acetone formula is of a better use when it comes to cleaning but most of the tips I've included in this article can be achieved with the non-acetone version too.

1. Keyboard Cleaner

First, make sure your computer is off because otherwise you may press something you didn't want to and make a full mess of your PC. Then, moisten a cotton cloth with nail polish remover and gently clean the surface of your keyboard. Don't do this very often because the acetone is extremely strong and you may erase the symbols from the buttons.

2. Floor Cleaner

You can clean every kind of floor surface with the help of nail polish remover and a paper towel except wood flooring.

3. Renovate Stained China

These irritating brown stain marks from tea and coffee can easily be cleaned with nail polish remover. Washing with soap and water afterwards is obligatory. Try not to destroy the decorations.

4. Shoe Cleaner

Moisten a paper towel or a cotton cloth and wipe your shoes. When you remove all scuffs and stains go through the whole surface with a damp cloth to get rid the leftover residue.

5. Superglue Fighter

DIY projects are my passion but the process of removing adhesive from my skin was a nightmare until I found out about the cleaning trick with moistened cloth with nail polish remover onto the sticky area of the skin. It really does miracles.

6. Renovate a Watch

If the cover of your watch is plastic, you could easily level and smooth its surface with a moistened cloth with nail polish remover. This is possible because of the strong dissolving properties of acetone. By doing so you will get rid of all cuts and dings on your watch. But you should be extremely gentle when scrubbing because you could make a hole in the plastic.

7. Permanent Marker Remover

Stubborn permanent marker ink stains on walls, hands and any other surface can be removed with a little help of a nail polish remover. You just need to use a solid amount of this magical liquid to drench a cotton towel and then scrub the stain away.

8. Razors Cleaner

Razors are not everlasting but why not keep them alive longer? Acetone is a well known disinfectant which can clean your razors. Dunk the razor in a cup with nail polish remover in it and leave it there for a few minutes then rinse well between the blades.

9. Paint Thinner

Oil-based and latex-based paint could be easily removed from any surface because acetone is a powerful solvent. You can also thin paint with these nail polish removers which are composed entirely of acetone but you must carefully check the ingredients in the label before using it to thin paint.

10. Clean Melted Plastic From Hot Surfaces

Nail polish remover makes oven cleaning much easier. Have you ever accidentally melted a plastic bag onto your oven or toaster or other hot metal surface? Well, I have … and it's extremely hard for cleaning. The easiest way to clean this mess up is with nail polish remover. But firs make sure the appliance is unplugged and wait patiently for it to cool down. After that clean the melted plastic with moistened cotton cloth with nail polish remover. Then dip a cloth into fresh water and wipe the whole surface again. Wait for it to dry before your next use.

Fridges are probably the most important household appliances modern homes can’t be imagined without. They’re also quite expensive and not as easy to maintain as most people think. The improper use, the lack of the regular cleanings, the excessive workload, the outside conditions the fridge has to operate in and common minor functioning failures that aren’t treated on time may lead to significant breakdowns and, consequently, repairing or replacing costs.  

As it’s not only a clogged kitchen sink or a broken dishwasher that may flood your kitchen, but also the fridge’s faulty operation that makes it leak, it’s quite important to be proactive and prevent refrigerator water leaks by cleaning your appliances regularly and defrosting even the frost free or frost control fridges to avoid faulty water lines and sudden leaks.

But, if those actually happen, you need to take immediate actions to determine the culprit of the leak and figure out the way to stop it. To do that, you need to learn what may make your refrigerator leak, which parts of the appliance you need to examine to figure out where the water comes from, and how to fix the issue.

So, here’re top 3 reasons why your refrigerator may leak and which steps have to be taken to bring your fridge back to order in each of those cases.

1. The defrost drain is blocked

What happens

When you notice a leak in your fridge, the defrost drain is the first place you need to check. When tiny food crumbs and other small particles accumulate in that drain, they may clog its hose, cause the buildup of the ice that prevents the water condensate and other excessive moisture from draining and your refrigerator from being able to control the frost or defrost on its own depending on the model of your appliance.

Eventually, it will leak. The more time you take to fix the issue, the more water your fridge will leak and the more probable the major breakdown will get.

How to fix

The solution is quite obvious and doesn’t require any advanced skills or knowledge to apply. You just need to unplug your refrigerator, find the defrost drain’s opening at the back wall of the fridge (not the freezer), use a small kitchen funnel or a kettle to run hot water through the drain and relieve it from the ice blockage.

After that, you’ll have to clean out the debris that was the main cause of the problem. Thus, grab a thin drain cleaning snake to get rid of the clog. If you don’t have one, you may easily use a long wire or a straightened metal hanger instead. Clean both from the inside and the back of the fridge.

But, if you don’t have the pipe snake or if you just can’t locate the blockage, don’t leave the drain issue not handled and ask a plumber or an appliance repair pro to finish the task. Otherwise, you’ll have to deal with frequent leaks and fridge malfunctions.

2. Misaligned water filter

What happens

When the water filter wasn’t installed properly and it’s misaligned in its housing, it might leak water. In addition to that, the water might leak from the water filter compartment of the fridge if the filter’s housing is broken or cracked. Broken filters cause leaks as well.

How to fix

Unplug the fridge, undo the filter and reinstall it, making sure that the filter and its housing are properly aligned. If that doesn’t do the job, get your fridge inspected and its filter/filter’s housing replaced.

3. Water leaking from under the fridge – frozen or broken water supply line

What happens

This often happens to the models with the built-in cold water and ice makers. The reason for this problem is quite similar to the previous one – the debris clog or the ice buildup that interrupts the water line’s normal flow makes the water leak and influences the ice and cold water production.

How to fix

The first thing to do is to unplug the appliance, find the shut-off valve that is related to the refrigerator’s water line (it may be located behind the fridge, under the kitchen sink or in the basement right underneath the fridge).

Then, you’ll have to inspect plastic pipes to determine if there’re any frozen water clogs in them. If you notice any, you’ll just need to leave your refrigerator to defrost for a few hours and test the fridge. If the ice clog was the ultimate culprit of the leak, the fridge should be alright after it’s all melted and gone. Finally, check the drain pan for any damages just in case.

However, if it’s not the ice that clogged the water line or if there’re any cracks in the actual pipes, you’ll have to consult with an expert or even get them cleaned/replaced by an appliance repair pro not to damage the system.
