There are many things in life which take up way too much of our time than they really should, and at the same time get on our nerves. Fortunately, in some cases there are ways to avoid all the hassle.
In this post, we present you with 11 ways to make some of the things we do every day a little bit easier.
Drinking Coke through a straw
Put a straw through the hole in the pull-tab of the can, and your Coke will no longer leak out over the top.
Making the perfect fried egg
You can make a perfectly round fried egg without buying any special appliances or gadgets — all you need to do is to cut a ring from an onion and place it inside.
Joining wires together
To make sure electrical wires don’t get pulled apart when stretched, tie a small knot at the point where you connect them together.
Put the bulb of garlic in a jar and screw on the lid. Imagine you’re a bartender, and give it a good shake!
Doing a manicure
Follow the steps in the diagram above to get neatly painted nails.
Refrigerating a drink quickly
To refrigerate a drink quickly, wrap it up in a damp paper towel and put it in the refrigerator. It’ll be nice and cool in just 15 minutes!
This method was worked out by Ayana Fieggen. Now, your shoelaces will never come undone — unless, of course, you undo them yourself!
Making an ice cream sandwich
Cut through the tub with the ice cream still inside, place the chunk on a cookie, and cover with another cookie. Voila!
Opening plastic packaging
Hard plastic packaging can be difficult to open even with scissors. Instead, use a can opener, and it’ll be a whole lot easier.
Folding a T-shirt like a boss
Simply follow the instructions above. It’s really easy and quick to do!
Bidet vs. toilet paper
Using a bidet is more hygienic than paper. It’s also helpful for people who have had surgery below the waist and women who have just given birth.
