5 Things That Will Make Your Life Easier

Our lives are often complicated and even the smallest inconveniences can irritate the situation. Any life hack that can make our daily lives flow a little smoother is quickly appreciated.

Life hacks are techniques that revolve around life’s minor annoyances. These hacks can be done quickly and in most cases inexpensively. Life hacks are creative ways you can make your life flow smoother.

Let’s take a look at 5 low budget tips that can help make your life a less stressful place to be. If you are ready to take some complexity out of your life and turn negatives into positives then these life hacks may be for you.

1) Soap As A Clothes Freshener

Take a bar or two of unopened soap and place it in your dresser drawers to keep your clothes smelling fresh. The stronger the scent the longer the soap will keep clothes smelling amazing.

Soap is also great for lubricating nails, screws and saw blades. Soap is perfect for picking up pieces of broken glass.

2) Toothpaste Erases Pimples

Do you have a date or an important interview or meeting and a pimple has decided to appear out of nowhere? Don’t panic, simply put toothpaste directly on the pimple and it will vanish overnight.

Toothpaste is also great for removing scuffs from shoes, deodorizing a baby bottle and polishing diamonds.

3) Removing Screws

How many times have you needed to remove a screw and can’t locate your screw driver? Not being able to find a screwdriver is made far worse by an impatient child who is waiting for you to put new batteries in their favorite toy. No screwdriver, no problem. Simply use a plug. Basic power plugs usually fit medium and large sized screws.

4) Use A Clothespin To Hold A Nail

Everyone has whacked their hand or fingers while using a hammer to pound in a nail. You can save your fingers a lot of pain by using a clothespin to hold the nail in place.

Clothespins are also great for keeping blankets on strollers. Just use the clothespin to clip the blanket to your stroller’s sun shade. Or use a clothespin to hold a tablecloth in place on a picnic table. All you have to do is clip the cover together under the table.

5) Removing Ink

It has happened to all of us…we stick a pen in our shirt or pant pocket and the pen leaks ink onto our clothes. How many tops have you thrown into the trash thanks to a broken pen? Too many I bet. This life hack will prevent ink from ruining your wardrobe. If you get ink on your clothes drop some hand sanitizer on the ink stain and it will dissolve it. Now just throw the shirt in the laundry and you’ll have your shirt back clean and ink free.

Hand sanitizer is also great for shining your cell phone screen, treating pimples, removing glue, replacing hair gel and as a cleaner for eye glasses.
