10 – Warming Drawer
That little drawer positioned just beneath your stove is probably being utilised to store excess pots, pans and muffin trays, right? Well, it’s actually meant to be used as a warming drawer. This warming drawer is meant to keep foods hot, this is especially useful if you’re attempting to prepare a full course meal and one part is done, say the pasta but the chicken may still need a few more vitol minutes to finish cooking.
9 – Cans O’ Plenty
Most people unload their case of soda one can at a time, however, there has been a simplier way of doing things which has been eluding many of us this entire time. All you have to do to save countless seconds of your time is to open both sides of the cardboard box and push the cans through as you slide the box towards yourself. This way you can unload an entire case of canned beverages in a single go!
8 – Dark Patches
Ever wondered why pirates depicted in movies are always sporting those adorable black eye patches? It’s not just to look dark and mysterious or hide a missing eyeball. Nope, turns out there’s a practical function at work here. Eye patches allow pirates to see in the dark better. So next time you need to go look through a darkened room which has no light source, simply place an eyepatch over one eye and let it rest there a bit. Once inside the darkened space, remove the eye patch, your eyeball will already be adjusted to the lack of light and therefor you will be able to see much clearer in darkened spaces. Just like pirates used to do when going below deck.
7 – Sleep Mask
Sleeping while sitting upright in a crowded tight condensed space with lots of noises and distractions is no easy feat. Luckily, I bet you didn’t know that most transportation systems are prepared for long rides and anchor sleeping masks to their seats. Just look at this girl snoring away beneath her seat sleeping mask.
6 – Foil Lock
Have you ever been in a rush to put food away and the aluminium foil springs out of the box and sometimes those tiny metallic ridges cut your fingers? Turns out that most aluminium foil boxes have press-in tabs which when punched out are meant to anchor the roll in place. Look for these helpful cutouts on the opposing sides of the Reynolds box next time, that way the aluminium roll will remain secure and in place when you need to rip it. There’s usually a similar tab on the sides of most plastic or glad wrap containment cardboard boxes as well.
5 – Cool Down
If you have ever stuck a glass bottle in the freezer in the hopes of cooling down your beverage quickly than you have probably had to clean up broken glass and frozen exploded soda pop. Well, there has been an easier way to freeze your drinks in record speed this entire time. Simply wrap a moist paper towel around your glass bottle and place the liquid containment vessel inside the refrigerator, the drink will be cool in several short minutes and you avoid potential sticky messy clean ups.
4 – Straw Holder
Soda pop is a tasty treat on a cold day, but those icy cans of bubbly beverage taste even better through the clean plastic interior of a straw. Those little metal tabs which you have to press in to break the seal and release the syrup laced soda pop actually have a dual function. That oval-like circle on the end is actually there to secure your straw to your can contained drink.
3 – Closet Space
Want another amazing use for those soda pop tabs which you have probably been throwing away or slicing your lips on? Are you low on closet space? All you have to do is pull off those metallic tabs and secure them to your closet hanger to create a double hanger! Down hang two outfits for the price of one and save space.
2 – Blender Cleanser
Have you ever fought with your blender attempting to clean all the crevices and compartments when a delicious strawberry daiquiri was in desperate need of a good blending? There’s an easier solution, simply pour a teeny bit of dish soap and some hot water into your blender, hit the blend button and allow your blender to clean itself! Why waste time scrubbing and dirtying and getting your hands all messy and soapy when your kitchen appliance can do the work for you? Yay simplicity!
1 – Duck Hunt for Two
Are you a fan of retro gaming? If you are, or if you just happen to be old, then you are probably a fan of the Nintendo arcade classic Duck Hunt. This game wasted hours of my childhood and could have potentially wasted hours more had I but known there was a two player function. Pressing the plastic gun against the glass screen and fire away at those pesky ducks if you’re first player. Plug in a second controller in order to control the ducks! That’s right there was a hidden option for a two player mode this whole time!
