We ADORE those little tips and tricks that make life so much easier, so we decided once and for all to compile our favourites.
We hope you find these useful and remember, if you have any life hacks that you swear by, just pop them in the comment box below!
Thinking about getting a tattoo but worried that you might regret it afterwards? Or maybe you’re worried about what it will look like once it’s done?
MomentaryInk.com is a business that will send you a temporary version of your tattoo idea so you can road test it before you commit!
They combine the design with their own sealing and matting solutions so you have a realistic, custom tattoo that looks exactly like the real thing.
Need to go to the toilet during a movie but don’t want to miss any important plot twists or comedy moments?
Runpee.com is an app that will tell you the best time to skip out to the loo so you don’t miss anything of importance!
Just select the movie you’re watching and it will give you a list of 3-4 minute slots where nothing significant happens.
Documentaryheaven.com has thousands of documentaries you can watch for free!
If you want someone to stop texting you, but don’t want to block them, then send them the following reply:
SMS SERVICE ERROR 305: MESSAGE DELIVERY FAILED. FURTHER MESSAGES WILL BE CHARGED TO YOUR ACCOUNT.
Afraid of spiders?
Lemons, oranges and limes repel these multi-legged creatures, so mix one or all with water and then spray the mixture along doorways and windows so they won’t enter the house.
Want to surprise your child?
If your child writes a letter to their favourite Disney character, they will receive an autographed 5 x 7 character picture in return. The only downside is that there is no guarantee it will be from the character they requested. The address to send the request to is:
Guest Experience Services: Character Fan Mail,
For the attention of (insert Disney character name here)
Walt Disney World Resort,
Post Office Box 10040,
Lake Buena Vista,
Stuck for dinner ideas and have limited ingredients?
Type your ingredients into Supercook.com or Myfridgefood.com and both websites will provide you with recipes for dishes that require only those ingredients!
Want a room to smell nice?
Buy a Fabreeze/Yankee Candle air freshner car clip and attach it to a fan.
The scent will blow out into the room.
Nervous? Blow on your thumb!
This is one of those weird stress-reliever tricks that really works! Dr Arun Ghosh, a doctor with Spire Liverpool Hospital, told Newsweek that blowing on your thumb will reduce stress and make you feel more relaxed because your thumb has its own pulse and blowing on it activates the vagus nerve.
All you have to do is inhale for seven seconds, hold it for three seconds, blow on your thumb for seven seconds, then repeat!
If your phone completely freezes, plug it into the charger.
This will immediately unfreeze it.
If you can’t stop coughing at night, apply some Vicks Vaporub to your feet and put socks on. This will stop the cough.
And our favourite life hack of all…
