Relationship With Your Inner Domestic Goddess

At the Relationship Supermarket, we also care about the domestic aspects of our lives and the good stuff that help make living easier. Because of career training and work experience, I feel more comfortable and qualified to write about relationship help and life-coaching type articles. Nevertheless, some of my most successful articles published are not those which discuss tools for an easier life, but equipment for making living easier in the home.

These first five (below) were very good earners for me on the Internet. I think that the popularity of the series is not owed to just the title, but the fact that they describe hilarious scenarios. They outline cheap, useful and unknown uses for various household items, but as a change from the norm where advice and tips are generally painstakingly listed, this amusing but handy series show someone walking around the home with a jar of Vaseline, salt, a bottle of baby oil, a bottle of Vodka, or a pack of toothpicks, taking care of the many tasks around the house that particular item could be used for - all in one go. The domestic goddess’s appetite for easy living was obviously whetted and satiated with these pieces.

Help for the domestic goddess who strives to be even better

Uses of Vaseline Around The House 
A list of useful things anyone could do in one afternoon with a simple jar of Vaseline around the home.

Uses of Salt In Housekeeping
Useful things just about anyone could do with a jar of salt, in just one afternoon. You don’t even need a pair of gloves.

Uses of Baby Oil In Housekeeping
A helpful list of things you can do, if you suddenly find yourself left holding a bottle of Baby Oil with no one to smear it on.

If Olive oil is made from olives, coconut oil – from coconuts, crude oil – from crude (you’ve got to know I’m kidding right?), and corn oil is made from corn, what is Baby Oil made from?

 Top 10 (Legal) Things to do if You Find Yourself Holding a Pack of Toothpicks
Allowable things to do if you’re holding a pack of toothpicks. You would be surprised at how useful they are.
You’re not quite sure how you got here, all you can vaguely remember is that you’ve been extremely busy and your activities involved some salt , a bottle of Baby Oil and a jar of Vaseline . However, you’re suddenly now aware that you’re standing in the kitchen, wearing latex gloves and holding a pack of wooden toothpicks. How do you make yourself useful while you try to figure out what went on before you arrived in the kitchen?

How To Clean Your House With Vodka
A very useful list of things to do if you’re suddenly holding a bottle of Vodka and have an afternoon to spare.

On a lesser note, I published How To Clean Pet Faeces, Yucky Spills and Other MuckyThings. This has always performed well, but the views came in constant dribbles rather than a mighty force of a Caribbean wave. I suppose this shows that domestic goddesses surfing the Internet are looking for more concise pieces rather than just general household-tips ones.

It was then I realised that Duct Tape For DIY had to be written.
I’ve always had a good selection of duct tape at home because I think out of everything else, this item has been most useful to me through the years.

Host Your Party Like A Celebrity On The Cheap
