1) Put a watch under the computer mouse to prevent “sleeping mode”
We can keep our computer “active ” forever and prevent the sleeping or screensaver mode. All we need is an analog watch and a computer laser mouse. The trick is – to place the mouse over the analog watch. Whatever requires you to keep your computer active, this hack will work. If you are watching a video and want the screensaver to stay off, it comes in handy. You can keep working on paper notes and do not need to unlock the screen every time. The movement of the second hand of the watch keeps the mouse activated.
2) Use peanut butter as shaving cream
Peanut butter (which is creamy, not chunky) can be used, as a shaving cream. Also, it is very healthy to use for the skin. Just apply to the areas where you need to shave. Shave with a razor and rinse afterward. The natural oils in it moisturize and condition the face. Also, these oils act as an effective barrier between the skin and the razor. Furthermore, the peanut butter leaves a nutty but not overpowering smell. There is no need for a lotion to keep the skin smooth and hydrated after using it.
3) Toast sandwich with electric iron
This is a quick hack to make crispy, toasted sandwiches. To toast, we need aluminum foil and an iron. Now, make a sandwich with your favorite ingredients. Then, wrap it with the aluminum foil into a parcel. Make sure not to wrap it tightly as it may rip while flattening the sandwich. If you want your sandwich to be very crispy and golden, adjust the heat as hot as possible. Remember, the hotter the iron, the crispy the sandwich. While toasting, lightly press one side of the sandwich for two minutes. Then, flip to the other side. Afterward, open the aluminum foil carefully as it is really hot. And, enjoy your sandwich toast.
4) Use heated milk to fix cracked ceramic plates
Milk contains a naturally occurring protein, casein. It can be formed into a natural plastic when heated. We can use this to our advantage by fixing a cracked china dish or ceramic plate. Place the cracked dish in a pot and fill it with two cups of milk. Then, heat it over a low flame for an hour. Allow the dish to cool down. Remove it and rinse. If the crack did not go too far, it should have resealed itself.
5) Make beverage ice cold in 10 minutes
We can make any drink ice cold within ten minutes with a simple hack. Wrap the drink bottle or can with a paper towel. Then, run it under cold water. Compress the wet towel onto the bottle for maximum surface contact. Freeze it in the refrigerator for 10 minutes. The chilled beverage is ready to drink. The water in the wet towel would freeze. It chills the drink much faster than a fridge and even a freezer unwrapped. Make sure that you do not keep it for longer than 10 minutes. Or, you will end up freezing it solid.
6) Use a glass jar as a sound amplifier
We can boost our phone volume by keeping it in a glass jar or cup. It should be dry and clean. Aim the speaker of the phone towards the glass jar base. Amplification happens as the sound reverberates inside the jar or cup. A bowl or a glass tumbler could be substituted. It will work decently for normal-sized rooms.
7) Say bye to falsies
There is not much need to apply those uncomfortable false eyelashes. We can achieve a thick eyelash look with mascara and powder. To start with the process, make sure the lashes are clean with no residual mascara. Curl the lashes beforehand. Apply the first coat of mascara from root to tip. Then, a light coat of translucent powder with a fluffy eyeshadow brush. Do not apply too much powder as it will make the eyelashes clumpy. Apply one more layer of mascara to cover up the dustiness of the powder.
8) Doritos as fire fuel
If you get stuck in the midst of nowhere and need to start a fire, Doritos can help. These tasty, fire-friendly chips serve as an excellent fuel if we do not have fire-starting suppliers. Cheetos, Fritos, and other sorts of chips work well too. Chips are 0basically hydrocarbons and fats, both of which are inflammable. So, we may not always have Vaseline or cotton balls on a trip. But, there are pretty good chances of having Doritos or chips with us.
9) Wooden scratches fixed with walnut
Furniture gets damaged over time. But, there is no need to live with the highly noticeable scratches. This hack can help erase the dings. Remove years old scratches with the simple snack food, walnut. Just rub the walnut on the scratched surface several times. Then, rub the portion with your fingers. This helps the wood to absorb the oil from the walnut. Finally, use a soft cloth for buffing the area.
These are some lifestyle hacks that act as your savior at times of distress. Try them now and make your life easier right away!
