Four #SMArtTips for around the home
We all place a lot of value on time, and these days everyone is trying to do things quicker. These #SMArtTips are a useful way to think SMArt and to be more efficient with day-to-day tasks – and some are quite fun or interesting to try!
Everyday things can naturally take a little longer to do when living with SMA. So why not explore some of these #SMArtTips for around the home, and make life a little easier?
The plunger: Cupboards and doors can be heavy to open, and some tricky handles aren’t always easy to grab hold of. This #SMArtTips finds an unusual but very practical use for the suction plunger – simply stick it to the door or cupboard and use it as an easy replacement for handles.*
Voice-activated lights: It can take a while to get cosy and settled into your favourite armchair or bed. Now there’s no need to leave this comfort to turn the lights on or off, as there are lots of options for in-home voice activation systems available to buy online which easily connect to light switches around the home.*
Chopsticks: Who knew chopsticks had multiple uses? They double up as a handy tool for picking up light objects more easily. All you need to do is add some Blu-Tac to one end of the chopstick, and place the other end in your mouth to control it. This works for all sorts of things, from cards to keys or even make-up.*
Electronic door locks: Need to open your front-door and let people in and out of your home easily? Try searching online to explore the different types of electronic front-door locks that are available. They allow you to control your front-door lock with your fingerprint or voice, or even via a smartphone from anywhere within your home.*
