We all know that if you get gum stuck on clothes, you place them in the freezer for a few hours, and the gum literally falls off. But what do you do when it’s in your hair?
Basically, it’s the same idea. Put an ice cube or two on the gum that’s in your hair for a few minutes until it hardens. Alternatively, you can wrap your hair with a towel and put some cubes in it. Worst case, cut the hair off and wait for it to grow back again.
Glue Your Wine Corks
We always encourage homemade art, especially when it doesn't require high expenses. Start holding on to your wine bottle corks as you are about to discover how to create your own bulletin board or a really nice unique framed picture.
Hot glue the corks onto a wooden board, with or without a frame, and a piece of art is born. Your visitors will ask where you bought this glamorous board, and you can proudly say it was custom-made.
Run Your Mascara Wand Under Hot Water
Mascara has a habit of drying out, lumping up, and not really making it easy to use once it's been open for a while. Badly applied mascara can ruin your whole appearance and ruin your day.
Running the mascara brush under hot water will get rid of all the lumps and bumps and assure the layer you apply is smooth as silk. It's so simple we don't understand why this hack is not on the label along with the instructions for use.
Stop Your Bra From Showing
Anyone who has to wear a bra on a regular basis wishes they didn't have to do it. The reality, however, is different. Here's a hack that will upgrade the appearance of those Y back tanktops (the ones with a back shaped like a letter Y).
With one paper clip, your shoulders will be free of straps (well, at least they will look free of straps). Hold the two straps and put them together with the paper clip. Feel free yet?
Zippers and Buttons
When the zipper of your jeans just won't stay zipped up, it's not because you've put on too much weight. It's actually because some zippers wear out sooner than the actual jeans do. Replacing the zipper will not help (we've tried).
With a keyring loop, hook the zipper onto the jean's button. It's like a jeans safety belt. Don't go anywhere without it.
