Life Hacks That Will Make Your Life Easier

There are plenty of life hacks listed on the Internet but unfortunately, not all of them work. Here are some life hacks that actually work to help save you time, effort, money and basically change your life forever.

 

Use Dental Floss To Cut Things

Who says dental floss is only for your teeth? Dental floss works like magic for all kinds of things around the house too. For example, it can be a great tool for a few cooking tasks. Dental floss can actually be used to replace the knife when cutting things like cakes, soft cheeses. In fact, the floss cuts in a perfectly straight line and makes the job a lot less messy.

Other than that, you can also use it to remove cookies from baking trays! Just slide the floss under your cookies to lift them up. Other than baked goods, you can also use dental floss to slice up soft fruits and vegetables such as bananas, watermelon and tomatoes!

Use Empty Lotion Bottle to Store Things

The next time your lotion runs out, don’t throw away the bottle immediately. Instead, clean it out because you can use it to store small valuables like keys and phone (if it fits). This is great when you want to take trips to the beach or swimming pool. Another alternative is to clean out the tube of your lip balm. This empty small storage can be used to keep rolled cash inside.

 

Use A Shoe Organiser For Storage

We often use a hanging shoe organiser to store shoes when beyond that, it can be used for a variety of purposes. This is a great tool to be used around the house to save space and be organised. With the many ‘pockets’ you can choose to store absolutely anything whether it’s make-up, accessories, supplies, gardening tools – the possibilities are endless.

 

Use Soda and Vinegar To Unclog Sink

Have a clogged sink? There’s no need to purchase expensive products to unclog your sink. All you need is to fill up a small bottle with a cup of water, add in about one cup of baking soda and one cup of vinegar. Pour in the mixture and immediately cover the drain surface. Let it sit for 5-10 minutes. Flush it down with hot water and voila!

Stretch Those Tight Shoes With Socks

If you accidentally bought shoes that are a tiny bit too tight for you, don’t torture yourself by tiptoeing around with crunched toes. Forget the ‘what is beauty without pain’ motto because comfort comes first. Loosen up the tight shoes with a thick pair of socks and aim a hairdryer on the tight section for a few seconds. Keep the shoes on while it cools down and repeat the process again if need be.
