Life hacks

            Domestic Tips

Reverse Your hangers:
     Put your clothes in your closet with the hangers reversed once a year. As you pull clothes out, reverse the hanger. Every year give away any clothes that you never took out IE (hanger facing original direction.)

Get Out Of The House In Time:
     Make your playlist exactly as long as you have to get ready in the morning. Go from chill songs to more energetic. You will be able to tell how you are doing on time by the currently playing song.

Unlock A Chain Lock From Outside:
     Find a rubber band. Attach the rubber band to the chain lock, then to the inside door handle. As you close the door from the outside, the rubber band will pull the chain and the lock will dislodge. Works like a charm.

Open A Banana The Right Way:
     Instead of tearing open the banana at the steam (which can be a real struggle), just flip the banana over and open it by pinching the stem. There is a reason monkeys do it this way.

Remember To Bring Important Things:
     When you need to remember to bring something with you, put your car keys on it the night before, or put the item you need to remember on your shoes.

Use Aluminum Foil Correctly: 
     On the ends of every box of aluminum foil there are tabs to push in that keep the roll from popping out; same for cling film.

Ice Cold Drink In 3 Minutes Flat:
     If you want to cool a warm beer or soda to ice cold in 3 minutes, put the can or cans in a pot and cover with ice. Next, add 3 cups of salt and fill with water. It will be ice cold in 3 minutes.
