Use your kitchen tongs for more than just cooking with these three hacks.
Best of all, you probably have all of these items around your house.
Kitchen tong dish brush
If you're having trouble reaching the bottom of a pot or pitcher, or don't want to get your hands dirty, this is the hack for you.
For this DIY, you'll need a pair of tongs, two sponges and scissors.
Cut a hole through the middle of your sponge and then insert the end of the tongs.
Repeat with the other sponge and voila -- you now have a double-sided brush that can make cleaning dishes a breeze.
Kitchen tong lemon juicer
Want to get the most out of your lemon?
Slice it in half and place it in the middle of your tongs.
Then hold both ends of the tongs and squeeze, getting the maximum amount of juice out of the fruit.
Kitchen tong window cleaner
This hack is great for those who have blinds in their house.
For this DIY, you'll need a pair of tongs, a dish towel, rubber bands and scissors.
Use the scissors to cut the kitchen towel into four pieces.
Then, wrap one piece around the head of the tongs and secure it in place with rubber bands.
Repeat this process on the other side to make the perfect duster.
