1. Detergent Dispenserlaundry detergent that doesn’t have a spout, but miss how efficient pouring your detergent used to be? A quick way to get the effortless pour you’re looking for is to fill a drink dispenser with detergent.
Not only will this get you a faster pour, but it will look much cooler than those chunky plastic containers ever did.
2. Plastic Bag Holdermillions of grocery store bags is one of the easiest ways to cause clutter in your home, but not if you use this little hack.
Take an empty tissue box and stuff a plastic bag inside, leaving the handles of the bag out. Loop the next bag through the handles before stuffing it in, and keep repeating until you have a chain of bags that will easily pull from your nice, contained box.
3. Nail Magnet
Glue a small magnet to the bottom of your hammer and use that to collect any metal odds and ends that may have gotten away.
4. Breaking a Few Eggs
Next time, try using one half of the already broken shell as a scoop. This will keep your fingers out of the nastiness and work very well for picking up that impossible escaped shell.
5. Perfect the Shower Temperaturethe shower but you have to spend five extra minutes cautiously feeling and adjusting the water to make sure it’s a good temp? What a waste of time.
The next time you get your water just right, take a small piece of tape and mark off what position the knob was in that got you that temperature. You can even do this in multiple colors if more than one person uses that shower.
6. Unload Sodas
