Leaning against the rungs of a ladder can get painful. Next time you have to spend a lot of time on a ladder, get a pool noodle and slice it so it can fit around the rung. Then when you lean against the rung, it is cushioned against the pool noodle. Plus, they are easy to move if you are moving up and down the ladder.
This one is a shin-saver, a car crash savior, and a great way to use those pool noodles your kids have grown out of. Remember, everything you own presumably has more than one purpose.
All Aboard the Tarp Train
The summer is just around the corner, the grass is unseen as it is covered with piles of leaves, and you have just spent your Saturday cleaning up and getting your personal plot of green ready. Taking multiple trips to dispose of your garden trimmings is a pain. Instead, you can use a tarp! You can buy a large tarp for cheap and use it to drag those branches, mulch, and leaves to the compost.
This is far more efficient and will save you from bending down and making multiple trips for yourself. Just make sure you are strong enough to carry everything in one go, otherwise, it may be smarter to get a wheelbarrow next time.
The Sock Pool Is Closed
Are your socks also jumping off the diving board and finding themselves between your washing machine and the wall? Well, this next one is for you; all you need is a foam noodle. Next time you are in your laundry room, stuff that noodle in between your washer and the wall.
Now when they try to take the dive the pool noodle will catch them and you won’t have to reach down the side ever again! The next creative hack we have to think of now is what to do with those solo socks whose partner never got missing between the washing and drying machine. Where do all the lost socks go to?
Put a Cork in It
Do you have a table that wobbles all the time? Well, your cork can help you with that, so next time you open up your favorite wine, keep the cork; it will come in handy. All you have to do is cut it to the size that will make the table balance out and glue it to the bottom of that leg. Now when you put pressure on the table, it will stay in place.
This is a much more permanent solution than shoving folded paper under the leg. Our good old friend, the bottle of wine, always knows when to come in handy, and now not only will it make us cheerful and keep our table in place.
Look Ma! No Hands!
If you don’t want to hold a flashlight while working in a dark space, you can opt for this hands-free light instead! All you have to do is zip-tie a mini flashlight to the glasses you are working with, and tada! You’re own pair of lighted glasses.
They are much cheaper than the camping headlamp you can get, and if you don’t like them, you can always cut them apart and have your flashlight and safety glasses again. Now after writing this hack, a few questions did arise. What happens to those few lucky people in the world who don't have a pair of personal-use glasses?
