This taco trick is inventive and delicious. To be honest, we haven’t given this one a whirl, but it seems brilliant. When tacos fall apart, it’s no fun, especially if you don’t have a fork on hand.
With a leaf of romaine, even if the tortilla fails, the lettuce will hold the taco fillings together. Plus, it saves time. No more washing and drying and chopping up lettuce. This is a win-win hack.
Microwave Cleaning Hack
All you have to do is put a cup of water and a slice of lemon in the microwave and set it for two minutes. The lemon/water condensation makes wiping away food particles quick and easy.
Of course, you can keep doing it the old-fashioned way—scrub and scrub until your arm gives out. Or save yourself time and energy and just do it this way.
Brilliant Pizza Box Hack
This idea is spot on if you find yourself cleaning up after the pizza party and you can’t find the dustpan. Repurpose that used pizza box. It’s not only an environmentally friendly way to reuse the box, but it is also simpler than a standard dustpan.
Once the debris is swept in, there is no need to dump it and put the dustpan away, just throw it all into the trash can. Done.
Convert Your Kitchen Faucet Into a Hose
Pool noodles have more than one use. Quite a few, actually, as this list shows. With this tip, you can fill up a household bucket. Large buckets do not always fit in the sink. And if they do, the tap doesn’t reach. This is where the noodle comes in to act as a faucet extension!
Another advantage — usually, even if the bucket does fit in the sink, it is very heavy once it’s filled. So, use a pool noodle, make cleaning easier, and save your back.
Pool Noodles Are a Source of Endless Hack Ideas
Noodles can be adapted to car bumpers for extra protection from rear-end bang-ups. Many of these bang-ups happen while we’re trying to parallel park.
Even if you zipped right into that spot next to the sidewalk, someone else who struggles with parallel parking is going to ding up your bumper. For extra protection, attach a pool noodle to your front-end bumper too!
