There are always these little obstacles in life like a pot boiling over, the buttons that keep falling off your shirt and it takes forever to find that one key you need. These problems may seem small but they can easily ruin your day. Do you want to learn some quick and easy life hacks that are easy to do, low cost and save your time? We have compiled a list of life hacks to make your life easier.
30. Identify your luggage quickly
29. Crossing words out
28. A good place to lean your phone
27. Remove Highlighter Stains
If you have hand-me-down books, this trick is particularly helpful. Lemon juice fades highlighter stains on textbooks and makes it nearly invisible. Take some lemon juice on a cotton swab. Run the swab over the highlighted text and watch the color fade.
26. Identify your keys easily
We seem to have a lot of keys with us but just a couple of ones we need regularly. You can use nail paint on those frequently used keys to make it stand out from the rest. Nail paint is extremely durable.
25. Keep seeds fresh
You may have brought seed packets thinking of adding more flowers to your garden, but your busy life got in the way and those packets are left untouched or maybe some seeds are still left after planting. You can store them in an airtight container with silica packets to keep them fresh for the next year. The silica packets prevent the seeds from getting moldy.
24. Make your beverage cold quickly
Wrap a wet paper towel around the bottle of your beverage before keeping it in the freezer. It will be completely ice-cold in 15 minutes. This is because the surface area of the paper towel works to cool the beer faster than the surrounding air could do alone.
23. Grow rose from cuttings
22. Smelly shoes
Ever been embarrassed to take off your shoes? Now here’s a way to remove that unpleasant odor. Place a few dry tea bags inside each shoe to absorb the smell. If your shoes are not just smelly but also wet, fill them with a mixture of rice and baking soda and leave it in for a few days.
21. Fog-free mirror
20. Keep your buttons from falling off
19. Prevent body odor
If you forgot to use deodorant and are worried about smelling like you have been to the gym, cut a fresh lemon or orange into two halves and just rub it onto your skin. This helps lower the pH level of your skin, thus killing bacteria that produce body odor.
18. Prevent water from boiling over
17. Ironing a shirt
16. Prevent wet waste bin
15. The life-saving card
14. Make your shoes look new
Brush your old sneakers with an old toothbrush and toothpaste to make them look brand-new. Make sure you use non-gel white toothpaste for cleaning white sneakers. Leave the toothpaste on the shoes for about ten minutes after brushing it, and then wipe it off with a damp towel. Repeat the process if necessary.
13. Iced coffee
When you make iced coffee, pour some of it into ice cube trays and let it freeze. You can add these frozen coffee cubes to your coffee to make it chilled instead of ice to prevent your coffee from getting watered down.
12. Neat paint cans
11. Peeling eggs
10. Stacking clothes
9. Cleaning a blender
8. Organizing power cords
7. Fixing wood scratches
Break a walnut in half and rub over the scratch several times. Then, rub with your finger till the area is warm. This helps the wood absorb the oil from the nut. This usually works on light scratches.
6. Removing car scratches
5. Protecting documents from rain
4. Hair conditioner as shaving cream
3. The right way to store herbs
2. Remove permanent marker stains
1. Cut onions without tears
Chill the whole onions in the freezer for 10-15 minutes to reduce the acidic, tear-producing enzyme they release when cut. Also, use a very sharp knife to chop onions- you’ll release less of the enzymes into the air.
