It's easy to get worked up over the small stuff. Those stains in your home, the sticky surfaces, your bad hair day, minor cuts on your body, all these little things are super annoying and instead of waiting until everything works itself out, there are some simple hacks that can fix all your issues in a matter of a few minutes!

Here are 10 hacks that will make you feel like a genius, but don't forget to pass it the advice!

1. Remove sticky substances with shaving cream.

Have you ever had a sticky substance spill all over your skin? Instead of hopping into the shower and scrubbing your skin to the bone, apply shaving cream to loosen and remove the substance. The moisturizing powers of the cream will leave some residue that you can wipe off after.  

2. Fix out-of-control hair with rubbing alcohol.

If your bed hair is out of this world, gently comb rubbing alcohol though your tangled hair. Make sure you don't do this often though, or else you will damage your hair.

3. Remove stubborn stains with hydrogen peroxide.

Blood, wine, and grease stains can be easily removed with the use of hydrogen peroxide. The chemical compound mixed with some non-gel toothpaste will remove the stain, and then rinsing with water will bring your beloved item back to life.

4. Put your silica gels in the right places.

The packaging on silica gels tells you to throw them away, but you'd actually be better off not to. Put them any place you don't want moisture damage, like instrument cases or bathroom drawers.

5. Remove stickers on any surface using a hair dryer.

Whether it's adhesive tape, a bumper sticker, or a price tag on a product, heat it with a hair dryer for 1-2 minutes and the sticky substance will come right off.

These next five hacks will save you time and energy!
