The 46 Most Brilliant Life Hacks Every Human Being Needs To Make Life Easier

I love finding clever solutions to the little snags I come across in cooking, building, cleaning, or just about anything. These are some that I find myself using all the time! Pour a half a cup of baking soda and a cup of vinegar into a clogged drain. Once it stops foaming rinse down the sink and your drains will be clear. A cheap and environmentally friendly way to unclog a sink! When camping or just in a pinch, a standard headlamp strapped to a 1 gallon jug of water can illuminate an entire room or tent. Placing a wooden spoon over the top of boiling water will stop it from boiling over by bursting the bubbles. Avoid getting a tongue lashing from your mom for putting your cold drink on her new coffee table. Many hotel TVs have handy USB slots in the back that will charge most smartphones. Use AAA batteries in gadgets that need AA batteries by filling the gaps with scrunched up tin foil. Putting your phone in airplane mode while gaming will stop those annoying ads from playing! Good luck!
