Little tricks make our everyday lives more comfortable.
Bright Side sorted out several life hacks for all occasions, starting from “how to clean your keyboard“ up to ”how to feel comfortable wearing high heels." At the end of this article, there is a surprising tip for you that will make your next trip to the zoo unforgettable.
№ 1. Finding phones
In order to find your phone at home, copy and paste www.google.com/android/find into the location bar of your browser. The system will call you for 5 minutes even if silent mode is on.
№ 2. Cleaning windows
In order to understand which side of a window is not clean enough, wash the window inside the house with horizontal moves and outside the house with vertical moves.
№ 3. Helping your guest find your house
Take a picture of your home, and send it to your guest when you tell him or her how to get to your house. This will make finding your home much easier.
№ 4. Assembling devices without any "extra" parts left
In order to assemble a keyboard correctly after cleaning, take a picture of it before you disassemble it.
№ 5. Getting rid of the smell of garlic
You can remove the smell of garlic from your hands by rubbing them against any stainless steel surface.
№ 6. Getting ketchup out of the bottle
To make ketchup flow faster from the bottle, dip a straw in it.
№ 7. Watching videos like on TV
To make YouTube show videos in full-screen mode and HD quality (if available) by default, paste the following into the location bar: www.youtube.com/leanback.
№ 8. Lifting stains
You can make a stain remover by mixing equal amounts of dishwashing liquid and hydric dioxide. Put this mixture onto the spot, and it will immediately start dissolving.
№ 9. Remembering and retelling
If you read or listen to something that you have to memorize, chew gum with a particular flavor. When you have to recollect this information with precision, chew gum with the same flavor — you will recollect everything easily.
№ 10. Warming food quickly
Any food will take a few moments to get warm in a microwave if you move it to the edges of the plate.
№ 11. Applying great manicures
If you want to apply your nail polish smoothly, thinly, without bubbles, and have it dry quickly, put it in the fridge for 15-20 minutes.
№ 12. Walking in high heels all day long
In order to feel comfortable wearing high heels all day long, secure your second and third toes together by applying a Band-Aid over them.
№ 13. Getting rid of a dripping tap sound
In order not to be irritated by the sound of a dripping tap, put a piece of string over it, and let the water go through it. It will keep you from going insane while you wait for a plumber.
Bonus: Taking good pictures at the zoo
Before going to the zoo, be sure to wear clothes that are similar to the zoo workers’ uniforms. In this case, it is more likely that animals will turn to you "full face."
