pine needles

Christmas season is officially upon us. If you are someone that has a real tree, eventually you’re going to find your home covered in little pine needles. Its even worse when you go to take down the tree. But the problem is, sometimes a vacuum cleaner just can’t suck up all the little buggers. Luckily, Huffington Post has a great tip to help you clean tree needles from your floor.

First, wrap a piece of duct tape around your hand — sticky side exposed. Then, pat the messy area with the adhesive. And just repeat this until the floor is clean.

This little trick will save you time by allowing you to pick up the greenery easily and rather quickly.
