Sometimes I read about life hacks and a lot of them are things I would never do...so I compiled 5 of my favorites that have changed my life ;)
1- Cleaning the Microwave: Use about 1 cup of water and 1 TBSP of Vinegar. Put it in a microwavable dish/bowl, warm it up for 5 min. Then wipe the microwave clean with ease :) I seriously use this once a month, works like a charm.
2- Febreeze Kills Ants! Just spray it directly on the ants and they will die! Then you don't have to leave your house smelling like poison. We've been having ant problems lately so this one has come in handy a lot.
3-Put vaseline on your fingers before you paint your nails! I don't know about you, but I am the worst nail painter in the world. If you put vaseline on your fingers before you paint your nails, you won't get any polish on your skin! Changed my life.
4- Wooden spoon on top of boiling water...won't boil over! Amazing. This one seriously blew my mind the other day when I was making pasta...I left the boiling water unattended....at least I could have...the whole time!!!
5-After popping popcorn, open top just enough for kernals to fall out. shake over garbage. Okay, we eat popcorn a lot at our house...it doesn't get all of the kernals out...but sometimes it does. It's worth the 2 seconds it takes :) especially if you are going to make something of the popcorn (ie. carmel corn)
Extras that I think are cool:
-Put wood glue over a splinter, let it dry, peel it off and the splinter will come right out!
-Tuesdays at 3:00 pm 6 weeks before your flight is when airline tickets are the cheapest.
-Can't remember the name of the song that's stuck in your head? Midomi.com is a cool site that will have you hum the song into your computer or phone and then it will find the song for you.
-Pimple? Put listerine on it....it'll shrink way faster...the alcohol dries it out.
