You know when you get into your car in the morning to head to work, and your legs won’t reach the pedals, because your spouse took your car out again and moved your seat? Yeah, it’s annoying, because it means you have to move it back and you never get it quite where you like it.
Grab the duct tape roll from your glove compartment and snip off two small strips of tape. Once you’ve got your seat positioned perfectly, mark it on the seat and on the floor, so you can line it up again once it inevitably gets moved again…which is probably later today.
A Hat to Scorch Your Skull
Sure, you could spend your time creating a hat purely out of duct tape as this person did. However, you probably shouldn’t, considering it would be more about (crappy) aesthetics than functionality.
Since duct tape absorbs heat, it wouldn’t work very well to protect your face from the sun, like hats are supposed to do. It may work to keep your head dry when it’s raining, though. Just don’t put it on when there’s even a hint of sun.
Keep Your Shoes Dry
Do the kids love to play outside when it’s raining, and then track everything right back inside, all over your nice, clean floor? This trick can be a fun family craft project and save those floors from the wrath of the muddy shoes.
Use the shoes as a guide while putting these together so that they’ll be the perfect size for each person. Next time it’s raining, simply have them put these on over their shoes and then take them off at the door! Bonus: these are super quick and easy to make, so you can remake them whenever yours are beyond saving!
This isn’t very nice to do, much like glue traps are being noticed as being inhumane lately, since harmless critters and get stuck and parish horribly in a slow, panicked death. If you’ve got a problem with flies, or gnats, however, and they’ve become invasive, try this trick to remedy your situation.
Just stick long strips of duct tape to the ceiling around rooms where the flies frequent. You can try putting a bit of honey or something on the tape to attract them, as well. Change the tape as they start to collect flies. After all, that’s pretty gnarly looking, and you probably don’t want that hanging around in your kitchen.
Now, in most cases, you will probably have access to either some kind of cup or at least a water bottle. But, if you do ever end up in a position where you need a drink of water, stat, and you have nothing to drink it out of, just whip out your trusty duct tape.
Make sure you make it double-sided, because you don’t want to taste the adhesive. All it takes is a couple of layers and voila, you’ve got yourself a drinking cup.
