Life hacks are simple tricks that boost our productivity or help us getting away of annoying situations in a different way. There are life hacks for almost every situation, and today we want to show you some of those that will make your everyday life a little bit easier. Some of them are absolutely genius.
1. The best way to avoid bottles rolling around the fridge.
2. Foldable Ironing Board
When space is at a premium, having bulky, one-purpose items like ironing boards can cause storage headaches. But if you have to dress professionally for work, ironing is mandatory.
Home Storage Solutions
Luckily, some brilliant inventor came up with a solution to this frustrating problem. A magnetic quilt placed on top of a dryer (or any metallic surface) provides the support for ironing without adding another unwieldy tool to your crowded home or apartment.
You can build your own by gluing magnets to the back of a quilt or you can purchase a pre-made one. When you’re done ironing, simply fold your mat, and store it in a drawer.
3. To slow their ripening, wrap some film around bananas’ stalk.
4. Cable Management System
Tangled cables can quickly become a severe pain. When you’re trying to get work done, the last thing you want to do is untangle a knot of cords.
Use binder clips to keep chargers and other cords that are frequently unplugged from falling behind your desk or getting tangled in all your other cords. You’ll get more life out of the cords as well because you’ll bend and kink them less. More importantly, you’ll experience much less frustration as you plug and unplug various electronics.
