Life Hacks That Actually Work

Life hacks are hit or miss depending on who you talk to, but these ones are pretty useful! Even if one saves you some time and effort when you're in a pinch, it's worth it. 

No Iron? No Problem

The last thing you think of while traveling is your wrinkly clothes. Obviously, the more delicate fabrics will be wrinkled, and no one wants to see that! Your hotel might not have an iron at the ready, but don't worry, there's a hack for that! Using a simple flat iron will get your clothes looking spic and span. Flat irons are small and sleek enough that you won't even notice them in your luggage. Use the flat iron for collars, sleeves, pockets... Everything!

The More You Know

  • Keep all those personal grooming tools in one place. A magnetic strip in the medicine cabinet can be used to store tweezers, clippers and small scissors.
  • Carrots take away the acidity in tomato sauce by adding subtle sweetness. If you find your sauce has gotten too acidic, peel a whole carrot, simmer it with the sauce and remove before serving.
  • During pollen season, rinse your hair before bed. Otherwise you’re just depositing pollen on your pillowcase every night and then rolling your face in it all night.
  • When you're working on the roof, wrap rubber bands around tools to help them stay put. The rubber will grip on roofs with up to a 6/12 slope.
