The best thing about life hacks is it won't just save you your time, effort, and money but it could also make your life easier. Unfortunately, not every life hack posted on the internet is real and accurate. Some of those that work are listed here. Read on to learn more about it.


Knives are still considered as a deadly weapon. No matter how useful it is, especially when cooking or preparing meals, this stuff can still be banned in some areas. But there is no need for you to worry if you get stuck in a situation where you need to have a knife with you, but you are not allowed to have one -- you can use dental floss instead, as shown by 5-Minute Crafts in their Facebook account.

It is not like you can cut anything with dental floss, but using this to cut soft things can be possible. By using dental floss, you can slice fruits and vegetables such as watermelon, tomato, mango, kiwi, banana, and melon.


Kids can be naughty that they sometimes end up expressing themselves through writings on the wall with colorful crayons, which can be difficult to remove. Without any idea of how to remove the drawings easily and properly, most people end up repainting their walls and even pay huge amount of money for it.

Good thing the Reader's Digest revealed a simple-yet-cheap way to remove those colorful drawings. You only need one partner to accomplish this plan-mayonnaise. Just rub a generous amount of it on the marks and leave it for several minutes. Then, wipe the dressing off the surface with a damp cloth.


A clogged sink is indeed a total pain in the neck and not a good sight to see. Calling a plumber to fix the problem could be a good thing to do, but it will surely cost you big time for it. So the next time you experience it, you might want to consider this hack to cut cost.

First, fill a small bottle with a cup of water. Add about one cup of baking soda and one cup of vinegar to create the mixture. The two ingredients will immediately react to each other, so make sure to be able to cover the drain plug with it immediately. Wait for at least five minutes. Finally, flush the drain with boiling water.

Life hacks are, indeed, a great way to make our lives easier. Just make sure to be cautious of every information you encounter on the internet since not everything is factual.
