According to Wikipedia, life hacking “refers to any productivity trick, shortcut, skill or novelty method to increase productivity and efficiency”. Life hacks are clever ways to use everyday objects which improve their functionality – and one of the hallmarks of the life hack is that it is inventive, using the item in a way not considered by the original designer.

I love watching life hacks videos on Youtube and this one by HouseholdHacker is one of the best I have seen. I was already quite familiar with a few of the ones that were shown in the video, like how to figure out if your eggs are fresh (or not) and the fact that warm water freezes faster than cold water – but there are some legendary ones I did not know. For the “toaster on its side” one… I have to add the caveat that you do not want melted cheese to drip into the element – and also… be careful that when the toaster “pops up” it doesn’t shoot your toasted treat onto the floor. So I would make sure that there is a plate or something else in front of the toaster just in case it ejects before you want it to.

I added some more “bonus” life hacks below:


1. Smart Solution For A Stinky Refrigerator – Get a plastic cup and fill it with wood charcoal. It will absorb all of the nasty odors.

2. Fix A Shrunk Shirt – If you’ve accidentally shrunk your favorite shirt, all you have to do is to soak it in warm water and add some hair conditioner. Soak it for 5 minutes or so and stretch it out. Rinse and hang it to dry. 🙂

3. Easier Way To Get Ketchup From The Bottle (or other similarly shaped bottles for sauces) – Most people try to whack the bottom of the bottle to get the ketchup out and they usually have a difficult time of it. A better way to do it is to hold the bottle sideways and lightly tap the lower part of the neck using your fist.

4. How To Remove The Smell of Garlic/Onions on Your Hands – While your hands are wet, rub your fingers against any stainless steel utensil. Try it! Another effective trick is to use a lemon rind.

5. Healthier Way To Thicken Your Soups – Many recipes require a mixture of butter and flour to thicken their soups. Try using a peeled potato. The starch from the potato will help thicken your soup.

6. How To Remove Hard-To-Scrub Residue on Your Used Cooking Pans – Fill it with water and put it on the stove on low heat. The heat will help dissolve the solids that are stuck on the pan – and then you can wash as normal.

I Can't Help Showing This Off:

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

    Add cream of tartar to that burnt/cooked-on pan when you boil the water.
    They make bags now for toasting your grilled cheese in the toaster. I thought the melted cheese would run to the bottom so I like the toaster-on-the-side plan for that.
