Running the sticky part of a Post-It note along your keyboard will help remove bits of food, pieces of grime, etc.
5. Rubber Band Around A Paint Can
Remove excess paint from your brush by placing a rubber band around the open paint can. Just genius!
6. Check Your Cell Phone While House-Hunting
Make sure you’ve got cell service while you’re house-hunting. You wouldn’t want to move into a place where you couldn’t take calls.
7. Fix Flip-Flops
If you’ve ever had a flip-flop pop out of place while you were walking, you’re going to greatly enjoy this simple hack. But, you’ll probably be a little peeved you didn’t think of it sooner.
8. Cut Perfect Cinnamon Rolls With Floss
Believe it or not, dental floss will help you slice through dough with ease, giving you perfectly shaped cinnamon rolls, cookies and more.
9. Apply Eyeliner With A Spoon
Placing a spoon on the top of your lid will help guide you so that you get a perfect line each and every time.
10. Keep Up With Bobby Pins
Placing bobby pins in a Tic Tac container means they’re easy to throw in your bag and easy to keep up with. Bobby pins have a way of disappearing, but not with this nifty trick.
11. Easily Pour Dressings
Instead of removing the foil from dressing or oil, poke holes in it, instead. That way you’ll never have dressing come rushing out of the bottle too quickly again. Just think of all the caloies you’ll save!
This is also a great tip for things like vegetable oil (shown in the picture), rubbing alcohol, and mineral oil.
12. Easily Dispensable Snacks
Placing cheerios, trail mix and more in empty coffee creamer bottles allows you to easily pour just the right amount out to keep your toddler entertained (and full). They’re not only great for in-house storage but at the park, in the pocket of your car, or on a boat, as it keeps the snacks from getting smushed.
13. Aloe Vera Ice Cubes
Aloe vera makes sunburned skin feel so much better already, but imagine if it were cold to boot. That’s the ultimate relief, right there.
