11 Aug Helpful tips to make your life easier
Sometimes a little imagination goes a long way to making life easier.
Among the tips offered here, most will make you say “Why hadn’t I thought of that!”
A paper clip to easily find the end of adhesive tape
Here’s a smart and easy way to save time searching for the end of the tape: just insert a paperclip before putting the roll away.
Store soiled shoes
Got a pair of shoes that you use for mucking about that are kind of dirty and worn out? Place them in a shower cap before storing them with your other shoes. This will make them easy to spot and they will be able to “breathe” freely, especially if they are slightly damp.
To prevent a pot from overflowing
If you don’t know by now, placing a wooden spoon on top of a pot while you cook pasta will keep the water from overflowing.
More space for clothes
If you are using metal hangers (like the ones provided by the cleaner, for example), insert a can tab so that you can hang a second hanger on it to maximize your closet space.
A very practical thing at the chalet or in the garage, for example.
For an iced coffee that tastes like coffee
Do you like iced coffee? Instead of adding regular ice cubes to your coffee, why not freeze coffee into ice cubes? This will keep its good coffee taste!
Bake two pizzas at once
Running out of space in your oven to cook two pizzas at the same time? Cut them into quarters and arrange the portions as shown below.
A cake cut to perfection
To cut equal parts of the cake, all you need to do is use floss. It works on all types of soft cakes.
Cool a drink quickly
To quickly cool a drink, nothing could be simpler. You should wrap it in a wet paper towel and put it in the freezer for 15 minutes.
All your charging cables neatly organized
Here is a brilliant idea for tidying up your cables of all kinds: In a box, insert empty toilet paper rolls (which you can cut in half vertically if desired) and use these “honeycombs” to store your cables and other items.
Identify your threads
Too many wires plugged in behind the computer or the TV? Identify them with bread ties!
To refresh wine or any cocktail
For a chilled white wine, just use grapes straight out of the freezer. The big advantage is that they won’t dilute the wine.
