Simple Things We Do Wrong Every Day

Many of the things we do and the way we go about things in our daily lives are purely done out of habit. However, so many of us aren’t doing things in the most convenient way. There are lots of small changes you can make here and there that will add ease to your life! Here we have a list of simple things we do wrong every day. Some of these tips can really get you out of a sticky situation. Take a look, you might just find something in the mix that helps you out!

Bread Tags

Bread tags can be way more useful than you initially thought! Use them to keep your headphones neat and untangled.

Cooling Drinks Quickly

If you need to make drinks cold quickly, there’s an easy way. Fill a large bowl or bucket with water and ice in equal measures. Then add 2 tablespoons of salt per 1 liter of water in your container. Submerge your bottles in the water so that they are completely covered and in 2 minutes your drinks should be 8-10 degrees cooler!

Cupcake Cases

Another multi functional item here! Use cupcake cases as shown in the image below to protect your drinks from bugs.

Flight Mode

By putting your phone on flight mode when charging, you’ll find your battery increases at a faster rate.

Foundation

When trying to find a foundation color to suit your skin tone, test it against your neck rather than your face!

How To Remove Creases Without An Iron

Place your clothes into your dryer accompanied by 3 large cubes of ice. Turn it on for 15 minutes. The steam produced should remove the crinkles in your clothes but don’t put too many items into your dryer when using this method or it will be far less effective.

Peeling An Egg

Put a teaspoon of baking soda into the water when boiling your egg. You’ll find that the shell peels off very easily.

Keyboard Legs

Keyboard legs are designed to help you see the keys better. If you can type without looking at the keyboard, it’s best not to use the legs as they can damage your wrists with prolonged usage.

Lipstick Stains

Lipstick stains can be a right old hassle. To remove the marks from clothes, spray the area with hairspray and leave for 10 minutes before wiping with a wet sponge. Once this is done, place your clothing item in the washing machine straight away.

Keys

Keys have the tendency to look rather similar to each other. So, why not make your life easier by painting the heads of your keys in different colors using nail varnish?

Protect Your Phone

Ensure that your phone avoids water and moisture damage when taking a shower, visiting the beach or hanging out by a pool by placing it in a sealable bag.

Reheating Food

To reheat your food evenly, spread it out as pictured in the image below.

Reuse Plastic Bottles

Cutting the head off of a plastic bottle allows you to create a seal on bagged items, preventing them from going stale as quickly.

Secret Messages

When you want to scribble out a message you’ve written, writing words over it rather than lines makes it much harder to figure out.

Showering

Showing too often and using body wash or gels too often can strip your skin of vital oils. This can lead to dry skin and can aggravate conditions such as eczema.
