When microwaving leftover pizza, did you know that placing a cup of water alongside your slice will help keep the crust from getting chewy? You can also use this trick to fluff up leftover rice, bread and other foods that dry out quickly. Here are some more life hacks that can make your life easier and save you money.

Instead of throwing out your old razors, you can extend their life by using them to clean pilling off your clothes and furnishings. Just be careful when moving around seams, buttons and stitching.

Are your wooden floors and furniture all scratched up? Skip the store-bought polish and restore that shine easily with this natural formula. Simply mix 3/4 of a cup of olive oil with 1/4 cup of white or apple cider vinegar, rub the solution into the wood and watch the luster return like magic. While you may have to reapply every now and then, this trick can make your finishes look like new in no time.

Lastly, did you know that microwaving your kitchen sponges for two minutes can kill 99 percent of the germs inside? First, make sure your sponge is microwave safe and doesn't contain any metal. Then start by saturating the sponge with water before you heat it up. This is important since a dry sponge may catch fire. After it's soaked, microwave it for two minutes at full power. Once it's done, let the sponge cool for a few minutes because it's going to be hot. Not only will this trick sterilize and renew your old sponges, it'll eliminate any foul odors, too.

If you're looking to save money in easy ways, give these simple life hacks a try. Every penny counts!
