Ten things we do wrong every day

There are many things in life which take up way too much of our time than they really should, and at the same time get on our nerves. Fortunately, in some cases there are ways to avoid all the hassle.

In this post, we present you with 10 ways to make some of the things we do every day a little bit easier.

Drinking coke through a straw


Put a straw through the hole in the pull-tab of the can, and your coke will no longer leak out over the top.

Making the perfect fried egg


You can make a perfectly round fried egg without buying any special appliances or gadgets — all you need to do is to cut a ring from an onion and place it inside.

Joining wires together


To make sure electrical wires don’t get pulled apart when stretched, tie a small knot at the point where you connect them together.

Peeling garlic


Put the bulb of garlic in a jar and screw on the lid. Imagine you’re a barman, and give it a good shake!

Doing a manicure


Follow the steps in the diagram above to get neatly painted nails.

Refrigerating a drink quickly


To refrigerate a drink quickly, wrap it up in a damp paper towel and put it in the refrigerator. It’ll be nice and cool in just 15 minutes!

Tying shoe laces


This method was worked out by Ayana Fieggen. Now, your shoe laces will never come undone — unless, of course, you undo them yourself!

Making an ice-cream sandwich


Cut through the tub with the ice cream still inside, place the chunk on a cookie, and cover with another cookie. Voila!

Opening plastic packaging


Hard plastic packaging can be difficult to open even with scissors. Instead, use a can opener, and it’ll be a whole lot easier.

Folding a t-shirt like a boss


Simply follow the instructions above. It’s really easy and quick to do!
