17 Everyday Things You’ve Been Doing Wrong


Everyday Things You’ve Been Doing Wrong

You may have seen lists like this before, but I’m going to give you some real life hacks that will actually help you out. I’m looking at all different types of tips and tricks.

1. Freezing Meat:

Flatten your ground beef when freezing it. This will cut down on the thawing time when you are ready to use it.

2. Efficient Kitchen Work

Pull out a drawer and lay a cutting board across it, so you can chop or scoop veggies as needed.

3. Eating Nutella

If you have a jar of Nutella that is almost gone, put some ice cream in it and eat it all up.

4. Dealing With “Garbage Juice”

Put some newspaper at the bottom of your garbage can to absorb any juices or liquids from food.

5. Storing Pot Lids

Mount a towel rack inside of a cabinet door to store all of your pot lids.

6. Mounting A Tablet On The Wall

Use the adhesive wall hooks to mount your iPad or tablet on the wall. Could be a good way to use it while cooking or watching something on it.

7. Buying Watering Cans

Poke some small holes in the lid, and fill it with water, this will serve as a good DIY watering can.

8. Utilizing Your Refrigerator

Use a Lazy Susan in your refrigerator for your ketchup, mustard, butter, or whatever condiments you like. It will save space.

9. Cleaning Your Keyboard

Use the sticky end of a Post-It note to clean between keys on your keyboard.

10. Luggage Tags To Identify Your Suitcase

If you use some very plain-looking luggage, you may get it confused with someone else’s bag. Tie a piece of brightly-colored ribbon on one of the straps. That will make it easier to spot.

11. Freezing Water

Wrap a wet paper towel around a water bottle when freezing it. The water will be frozen within minutes.

12. Storing Cleaning Supplies

Use a shoe rack to store bottles of cleaners where they will be easier to find. Also, it can help keep those bottles away from kids.

13. Making Iced Coffee

You can freeze coffee to keep your iced cappuccinos and lattes from getting watered down.

14. Vacuuming

Put a stocking over the end of the vacuum to pick up small things like jewelry.

15. Hard Boiling Eggs

When boiling eggs, put a teaspoon of baking soda in the water. It will make the shells come off way easier.

16. Making Ice Packs

Soak a sponge in water, put it in a Ziploc bag, and freeze it. It will make a nice ice pack that won’t melt on you.

17. Cleaning Headlights

If your car’s headlights are hazy, use some toothpaste to clean them up.
