Brilliant life hacks that everyone should know about.
You never know what awaits you today. Fate now and then throws us big and small trials. If a person must cope with large trials solely on his own, then useful advice will help to solve many small issues, especially of a domestic nature. Several of these have been collected in a new survey. Happy viewing!
1. Chill the drink
Chill beverage quickly.
A can of compressed air can help cool your drink bottle quickly on a hot summer day. Simply place the bottle in a small container, wrap the base with foam or sponges, and carefully scrub the surface of the bottle with an inverted air canister.
2. Correct the dent on the body
Correct the dent on the body on your own.
A can of compressed air and a hair dryer will help remove a small dent from the car body. To begin with, warm up the damaged area well with a hair dryer, and then treat this area with a jet of compressed air. A sharp change in temperature will lead to the fact that the damaged area will take its original form.
3. Portable door lock
Reliable portable door lock.
An ordinary fork will help to protect yourself and your belongings in a place where the door for some reason does not close. In addition to the fork, you will need a standard set of tools, such as a hammer and pliers, with which you need to separate the fork handle from the toothed part. As a result of such simple manipulations, you will get a small but reliable lock that you can always carry with you.
4. Dust during repair
Dust protection during construction work.
A regular disposable cup will help you to escape from fine stone or metal dust while working with a drill. Just slide it over the base of the drill before starting to work with it. All debris, dust and shavings will remain in the cup.
5. Superglue on the skin
Remove superglue from skin.
Vaseline will help you easily and painlessly remove the quick-drying glue from your skin. Liberally lubricate the contaminated area of the skin with it, wait a couple of minutes and carefully remove the adhesive films.
6. Sealed packaging
Hermetic packaging of products.
A pair of drinking straws will help "fix" the clasp of the plastic bag and make it airtight again and suitable for storing tea, spices and food.
7. Revealing the unevenness of the lock
Identify the misalignment of the lock.
Lipstick will help to determine in which direction the door lock is leaning. Apply it to the latch of the lock, and cover the receiving strip on the door jamb with masking tape, then open and close the door several times. By the traces of lipstick left on the tape, you can easily identify the side of the skew and start repairing.
8. Sealed plastic packaging
Open the plastic wrap.
With a can opener, you can easily open the sealed plastic packaging that often contains toys and tools.
9. Cleaning metal parts from paint
Remove old paint from a metal part.
It is possible to clean a layer of old paint from various metal parts not only with the help of caustic chemicals. Simply dilute the dish detergent in a pot of water, place the parts to be cleaned there, and let it sit overnight. By morning, the old paint layer will be soft and can be easily removed.
10. Increase the sliding of nails and screws
It is easy to hammer a nail into a wood surface.
Laundry soap will help you easily hammer in a nail or screw into a wooden surface. Rub it well on the shaft and the tip of the nail or screw to increase the slip and prevent the wood surface from splitting.
11. Express drying of socks
Dry socks quickly.
A hairdryer will help you dry wet socks quickly in extreme conditions. Just pull your sock over it and turn on the warm air flow. Five to ten minutes and the socks are dry.
12. Prevent windows fogging
Prevent fogging of windows in the car.
A sock filled with cat litter can help prevent the windows from fogging up in your car. Cat litter wonderfully absorbs moisture, which is the reason for the fogging of windows. It is best to put such a sock on the dashboard, closer to the windshield.
13. Remove paint from the brush
Remove dried paint from a paint brush.
Using vinegar, you can remove dried paint from the bristles of a paintbrush and make it suitable for later use. First, soak your brush in a container of vinegar for an hour. During this time, the bristles should soften. If this does not happen, leave it for another hour. After the lapse of time, the container with vinegar and a brush must be put on fire and brought to a boil. Gently remove the brush and let it cool, then use your fingers or a flat comb to separate the bristles.
14. Keeping money
Secure your money.
When going on a trip, to a disco or to the beach, hide your money in the individual packing of the pad. Such a trick will help protect your finances from thieves who are unlikely to touch such an intimate feminine hygiene item.
15. Children's shoes and toys
Washing of children's shoes and toys.
The dishwasher is ideal for washing children's plastic toys, shoes and baseball caps. Such washing will greatly save time, provide good disinfection of children's things and prevent their deformation.
16. Open the tight cover
Unscrew the tight jar lid.
You can unscrew the tight lid of the can with a tennis ball. To do this, cut the ball and use part of it like a bottle opener.
17. Stretching shoes
Stretch out small shoes.
We bought a new pair of shoes, and at home found them too small or too narrow. Do not despair, there are many ways to stretch it. One of the easiest and most effective ways is to use water bags. The bags, about a quarter filled with water and tightly closed, should be placed in tight shoes or boots so that it fills the entire inner surface of the shoe. Having done this, place the shoes in the freezer, wait until the water freezes, take out the shoes and leave to thaw for 20 minutes. It remains only to remove the bags and wipe the shoes from the outside and from the inside.
