I surely do and they are freaking awesome. There are so many small changes one can do in order to improve your life for the better. Small changes that has big effects are my favorite. Like if I am doing something and it’s really annoying how much time it consumes I like to try and find other ways to ease the workload and make me more productive. Or at least give me more hours in front of the computer or other things like watching a 30 minute episode of my favorite series The walking dead or game of thrones which is soon airing soon for its 6th season. Almost can’t wait anymore!
Example of cleaning the oven
These are small things that I rather be doing than cleaning the house for example. As the young man I am, I do not often clean the oven… I do not think many bachelors do that too often. But compared to most bachelors I actually use mine pretty often since I do not own a microwave this is the number one heating spot when it comes to re-heating food. And if you use it as I do without care it gets damn dirty and the grease really gets stuck like hell. Almost impossible to get clean
So I figured out a way to make it clean with minimal effort from myself. I used dads sander which is one of those that spins not the back and forth type. And added some steel wool onto the place where there should be a sandpaper and turned it on. The results were amazing, in no more than 10 minutes the oven were cleaner than when I moved in and it works just as good on the grill grate also. I probably saved hours by doing it this way and now I can’t really understand how people cannot have one of these tools within their kitchen. I went down to the hardware store asap and bought myself a cheap one and will probably use it on everything that’s really dirty now.
You see how these small hacks change life
The rest of the night I spent watching series and writing some work for school, sadly I haven’t come up with a good way to decrease workload on that frontier too much… But hopefully i can get some nice tips from you guys!
Here are a few other lifehacks
Dorm room or apartment smelling bad after a party? Well tape a dryer sheet over the AC unit and just flick the switch and you’ll notice a difference instantly.
- Actually used this one myself and it does work really good.
This might not be my cup of tee as I rarely iron anything but even so it’s a really good tip. Turn your shirts inside out while ironing so that you do not have to go around the buttons.
- Great thing to do and I will definitely do it on those rare occasions when I actually iron my shirts.
A given tip which I’ve been using for years now is to put a newspaper in the bottom of your trash bag in order for it to absorb food juice.
- Food juice always seems to find its way out and there are always a small hole in the bottom of your bag even if you checked it twice so this is a given hack to reduce your labor.
And my favorite, wrap a wet paper towel around your beer and put it in the freezer for about 15 minutes. It’ll be completely cool and ready for intake.
- Haha, you can probably guess that this has been used a few times over the years… Those hot days when you get home and want to start drinking asap, this is the way to go! Cool beer or whatever you drink in no time.
That’s just a few of my personal favorites, but I have to say the oven which I came up with on my own was one of my happiest days and that I’ve never even thought of it before surprises me. Others I have to give credit to lifehack.org for since at least a few of them came from their site and I read it regularly.
