In the summertime, glasses often get left around all over the place and there is a risk of dropping them, scratching them, or even breaking them. But this is almost impossible if you organize the storage in this unusual way.
If you have drawers that are very noisy, try putting a little bit of hot glue on the top of the internal side of the drawer.

Use an inflatable pool to create a safe place for a baby to play.
To stop potatoes from sprouting, put an apple into the sack.
If you cut an apple, it will go yellow because of the iron in the apple which creates a chemical reaction with oxygen. Use a rubber band to keep them together and take them anywhere you want. In this case, the oxygen won’t react with the iron.
Hold any object in your hand that produces loud noise when it falls down, so you don’t oversleep when napping. Dali used this method as his wake up “signal:” he used to hold a key over a ceramic plate.
This life hack is a must for those who always burn their tongue while cooking. To stop it, just put a spoon in the freezer and take it out when you’re going to taste a dish. You won’t need to wait until all the food in your spoon cools off.
If you want to eat some boiled eggs, don’t put on a pot of water to boil. Some people say that it’s better to cook the eggs in the oven. It takes more time (30 minutes intead of 10) but when baked, hard boiled eggs have a creamier texture. Also, they’re even easier to peel.
Pizza stones give pizzas, breads, and other things a marvelous crust. Use two layers of pizza stones, or tiles, and you can turn your oven into a brick oven. The pizza stone distributes the heat evenly in your oven, and when the pizza cooks on top of the stone it has a better crust.

The habit of having a wallet in the back pocket of your jeans is a normal thing for men (and some women do it too). We all know that this makes it easy for someone to steal it. But this habit also affects your health. It’s been proven that sitting on your wallet is a bad idea because wallets hurt our lower back and pelvic nerves and can even pinch the sciatic nerve.

The 1st way is very easy: you just need to place pressure on a point above the nose bridge. The bone in this area will start swinging and it will stimulate the flow of fluid.
The 2nd way requires holding your breath: pinch your nose, hold your breath, and start nodding your head. These movements will cause carbon dioxide accumulation and your brain will flush the nose sinuses because of the lack of oxygen. Then you should be able to blow your nose.
If you hurt yourself, it’s best to apply ice or a cold compress. But unfortunately ice can sometimes be too cold, and it starts melting too fast — it’s hard to find a happy medium. To make things easier, we suggest that you freeze some sponges. Soak them in water, then put them in a bag, and put the bag into the freezer. Now you have a great cooling tool that won’t melt!
This rule states that you shouldn’t postpone tasks that take less than 2 minutes. For example, making your bed or washing a plate are things that are very easily accomplished. Leaving things like this not only adds up, but these things could collectively contend with important tasks later.
