Now am not talking about the way we eat or what we eat and when we eat. Or don’t think am referring to how to lose flaps and flabs. What am saying is basic household hacks that you have never thought about. Those things you do daily and you have never thought you do them wrongly.
Right now, I am stuck somewhere in between shock and disbelief myself…
#1. If you lay a wooden spoon over the top of a boiling pot, it keeps the water from bubbling over the side of the pot and making a big mess.
#2. Put your straw through your soda can tab to keep it from floating up and away.
#3. You’re supposed to use a flange plunger for your toilet and a cup plunger for your sink. Most of us simply use one for both – hopefully with a good wash in between.
#4. If you didn’t catch this, yogurt containers like these are meant to be flipped.
#5. If you make a few small cuts in an orange, it rolls out in a nice, orderly, non-sticky fashion.
6. You’re supposed to pull the sides of the juice box out so that your kids can hold onto them and keep the juice from spilling.
#7. Use a paper clip to pop the reset button on the ink cartridge when the computer says you’re out of ink. It leaves with a bit extra for emergency purpose
#8. Keep your extension cords from coming undone with this handy trick.
#9. The best way to peel bananas – so you don’t damage the fruit – is from the bottom up.
#10. You’re supposed to use the hole in the pot to handle to hold your spoon while cooking.
#11. You probably haven’t noticed that there is a tab on the side of your aluminum foil to keep the foil in place while you unroll it.
#12. You’re supposed to place the flag of toilet seat covers in the front, not in the back.
#13. If you’ve got a little bottle like this, you can easily hack pitting a cherry.
#14. You’re supposed to use only a dab of toothpaste, and you’re not supposed to rinse your mouth with water afterwards.
