11 Life Hacks You Must Know.

There is so much information on the net and it is hard to know what to learn about first. These life hacks should definitely take a priority, as they will come in handy day in and day out.

Let’s have a look at 11 interesting life hacks that will make your life easier:

1. Parsley

Did you know that parsley helps eliminate onion and garlic breath, which is why it graces a lot of Mediterranean dishes as a topping.

2.  Chilling your drinks

Adding salt in the ice of your ice bucket will chill bottles of liquids quickly.

3.  Water proof your shoes

Rubbing beeswax and a little powder will waterproof a pair of shoes, this is according to lifehack.org.

4.  Insulating your rubbish bins

Lifehack.org gives a pretty obvious piece of advice; place newspaper at the bottom of a rubbish bin to absorb liquids.

5Batteries

To test whether your batteries are flat or not, here’s a simple way of telling. Drop them on a flat surface and the dead ones will bounce a couple of times, while the charged ones will bounce and fall right over. No more wasting batteries when they are all in a bunch together.

6Stop Pans from boiling over

This will save you from cleaning those nasty dried up water satins from you stove top. Place a wooden spoon over a pot of boiling water and it will keep it from boiling over.

7Boiled eggs

You will love this one; it’ll save you time and your eggs too. Add a teaspoon of baking soda when boiling eggs to help peel shells more easily.

8.  Opening you wine bottle

We all have been there; you get that bottle of wine and no corkscrew to open it. There is a solution to this. Drive a nail in the cork and yank it with a hammer’s claw.

9.  Splinters

Splinters are probably one of the most frustrating experiences you go through. Here’s a good way to remove them from twistedsifter.com. Remove a splinter easily by applying a paste of baking soda and water, then wait several minutes for the splinter to poop out of the skin. Will be trying this one next time I get a splinter.

 10. Pizza Lovers

This one is for you – Pizza Lovers!! Put a small Amount of water in a glass when you microwave a slice of pizza. The steam will help the crust from getting too chewy.

11. Keyboard hacks

Here something you might not know and it’s pretty handy. Use the space bar to scroll down a page or hold the shift key and space bar at the same time to scroll back up.
