Nothing is more frustrating than removing a sticky garbage bag from the bin, only to discover that the poor bag is holding on to dear life. It’s messy and kind of gross too, and always, but always, the bottom of the bag rips, and the trash is scattered all over the place instead of staying where it belongs.
Thankfully, with a bit of help from some household tools, you can solve this in a jiffy. All you have to do is drill a hole into the bottom of the trash can, and there you go. This gets rid of the vacuum-like seal that makes the bag stick to the floor of the can.
Wrap an Elastic Band Around a Soap Dispenser
We all, with no exemption, men and women alike, young and old, smart and stupid, use too much soap when we bathe and wash our hands. It's a fact, and this is why we should all wrap an elastic band around our soap dispensers. This is a great way to be careful with your soap usage, it's a good way not to be wasteful.
Just wrap a rubber band around your soap dispenser so you don't squeeze all your soap away. This will also save you some good money because you won't run to the store weekly for a new bottle.
Keep a Fitted Sheet in Place with Suspenders
Sometimes fitted sheets can just slip right off the corners of the bed, and you find yourself lying on a half-naked mattress in the morning. It's no use keeping them down yourself and believe us, we've tried, there nothing you can do about it except for this incredible hack!
To avoid this problem, just dig out a pair of suspenders. Simply clip them on each side of the bed on each corner with the suspenders, and your sheet will stay put for sure. You will never have to worry about keeping them down again (until you change your bedding, that is).
Foam Noodle For Your Car Door
Using foam noodles on your car door can be especially useful in cities where traffic is busy or when you often park near walls and buildings. Opening car doors in confined spaces can be particularly hazardous, and you certainly don't want to damage someone else's car (but more, you don't want someone to damage yours so you are hoping more people are reading this).
The good news is that you can just use an old foam pool noodle that you have lying around the basement. Just cut it and attach it to the door handle. This way, you won't ever accidentally scratch your car again. You can even tape it along your garage walls.
Cover Your Alarm System with a Painting
Alarms keep us safe from potential danger. But they don't look so pretty doing it. In fact, alarm systems can look rather unsightly and tend to ruin the entire interior designer's work you spent a fortune on. Removing these devices just because they don't look good would be inadvisable, and besides, there are some people out there who say it is better to be safer than sitting in a well-presented living room. We disagree.
You can do some alarm redecorating. Take a piece of art and just decorate your alarm system. You can use some hinges and simply cover the alarm with your beautiful design. It's easy and it looks great.
