Often things go wrong in life and do not go as planned. Sometimes we can take it in our stride but at times we feel that it is all about repetitive bad luck and something is not right. If you believe in superstitions then there are some habits ad mistakes that we might be making which attract bad luck for sure. Here is a list of some important ones that you must work on and avoid.

Lifeless, Dead Decor In The House

bad luck one

This is quite a famous one but in case you are unaware, then you must throw away shrivelled flowers and dead leaves from your house. It often happens that we forget to dispose off the roses in a vase but this attracts bad luck as per believers. Some even say that objects like seashells as well must not be stored in your house. 

Green Paint

bad luck two

This is a very rarely known superstition but it is counted as one of the mistakes that attract bad luck. In the old days when the walls of a house were painted green, it contained arsenic which was said to produce a toxic gas. This made the colour very unlucky for the well being of people in the house and in many households, still remains so although the production of paints has changed 360 degree.

A Broken Clock

The old, antique clocks add a different vibe to the house. However, sometimes even these clocks are not working, they have said to have made a chiming sound out of the blue. If this happens, it is said that death is near. Even as per feng shui, broken things in the house are a major source of bad luck attractors so keep them away.

Old Broom

When you move into a new house, leave the old broom behind. This is considered to be very unlucky and the tale behind it is that the old broom sweeps away all the good luck. Going by a more logically reasoning if you insist, old broom could be carriers of pest and dirt from your old house. So why not just buy a new one as it is not exactly a costly investment.

Vase With Red & White Flowers

This could be new for many or unknown for a lot of us. As per a Victorian superstition, if you put this flower colour combination together, you are attracting death and that it could happen soon. So it is best that you keep just reds together or the whites together, or infuse another colour of flowers in between to break the bringer of bad luck.

Open Umbrella

Keep it in your balcony or outside the house, but never inside. Umbrellas should never be opened and kept in the house. As per Egyptian beliefs, open umbrellas inside the house, attract bad luck. It is said that when you bring home an item that protects you from the rain, you are entering the bad books of your home's guardian spirits.
