8 Household Tips From Nurses For Those Quick Fixes

If there’s an overworked and underappreciated job out there, it’s nursing. Day in and day out, nurses are the ones keeping hospitals running, patients healthy and everyone as happy as can be in a place where this isn’t often much to be happy about. This hectic lifestyle, coupled with being surrounded by a very specific selection of devices and products, has led some clever and crafty nurses to seek shortcuts in the very things they’re working with. Anything from a towel to toothpaste can solve a problem in a hurry, if you know what to do with it.

1.) A little mint toothpaste below your nose (or on your finger to sniff as needed) can help block foul odors you might be dealing with.
