{hacks} 10 MORE of the Most Amazing Food and Life Hacks You Need to Know Right Now

I know what you’re thinking: after my last 13 Amazing Food and Life Hacks, how could I POSSIBLY have any more incredibly useful and fabulous life hacks for you? Well it has taken me awhile but here are some more. Read on for TEN MORE of the most life-changing, wonderful, great food and life hacks.

1. Does your room have an unpleasant smell? Tape a dryer sheet directly over your face.

2. If you have been saving old Pringles cans so you can clean them out and store spaghetti in them, just throw them away instead. 


3. To make sure your wine stays chilled, drink it really fast. 

4. Cook bacon in a waffle iron! Then throw the waffle iron away because it will be covered in grease and impossible to clean.

5. If you find yourself cooking Top Ramen in a motel coffee pot, take a long hard look in the mirror and ask yourself, “How did I get here? What am I doing? When did my life go so wrong?”

6. Cut cakes with a knife and use dental floss to floss your teeth. Seriously. If you touch my cake with dental floss I will never forgive you. 

7. If you ever need to stop for directions, just use your phone like a normal person. It has a map! Don’t tell me you actually considered trying to find a pizza place to ask directions. How would you even begin to find one when you’re so lost already? Ridiculous. What the hell? 

8. If you’re thinking about turning a toilet paper roll into an iPhone speaker, I hope you enjoy the prospect of never dating again. 

9. Need to know if your eggs are raw or hard-boiled? Really? You can’t remember? 

10. When all else fails, use pool noodles and binder clips for LITERALLY EVERYTHING.

  1. So much to say. First, my son is obsessed with collecting Pringles cans so he can shoot baskets with ping pong balls. Isn’t that why they are shaped like that? The cans are geniusly designed for life-after-chips as a plaything for fidgety 10-year old boys?

    Next, the binder clip as a way to keep your shirt sleeve cuffs in place. WHY DID I NEVER THINK OF THAT?

    Finally, almost twenty years ago, I had a philosophy professor whose blazer buttons were inexplicably covered with tin foil. Please find a way to illuminate that as a hack that I was just too dumb to understand at the time. I’m open to the possibilities.

    1) I must endeavour to find more room for pool noodles in my life. I see now that this is the reason it feels so empty and meaningless. Thank you!

    2) ^Whitney, people cover delicate and expensive buttons with foil to prevent their damage during washing or dry cleaning. Your Prof seems to have just given up on unpeeling. Makes me think of the protective plastic covering on furniture that some leave on.

    Yes, I agree with you that dental floss is for teeth not for cutting your cake. It keeps your teeth free from periodontal disease.
