12 Everyday Object You've Been Using Wrong All Along

It's time to start working smarter, not harder. These everyday objects can do so much more than you ever thought!

Using tissue paper only for gifts

Are you packing clothes that wrinkle easily? Try laying them inside a sheet of tissue paper and then fold it normally. The tissue paper will prevent creases in your clothes.

Opening your key ring

Grab your staple remover for an easy way to open your key ring. No more broken nails and curse words.

Adding the toppings to your Greek yogurt

If you've been scooping out the toppings for your Greek yogurt, you have been doing it all wrong. It turns out that you can fold the container in half so your toppings pour directly into the yogurt.

Pushing the side tabs on the plastic wrap box

Have you noticed the push tabs on the side of your plastic wrap box? Most brands have these to help "secure" the roll so that when you tug it, it doesn't become a tangled mess.

Using the wrong plunger for your toilet

Did you know there are two kinds of plungers? One is made for your toilet, while the other is for your sink. Do you know which one is for which?

Not emptying the water from your iron

When you're done ironing, do you remember to empty the water before storing it? Excess water can damage the internal parts, which could cause leaking and discoloration or the soleplate.


Snapping off pieces of Toblerone

This popular candy bar seems pretty straight forward to eat. You will notice, however, that snapping of pieces can leave a crumbly  mess. Instead, you should push pieces towards the box to break them off instead,.

Applying your conditioner on from the root

You should be adding your conditioner from the tips of your hair where it is the driest and most damaged, and then work your way up. Applying it to the top of your hair first risks you making your scalp and roots oily.

Pumping your mascara

While you may be trying to add more mascara to your brush the tube actually helps to keep the right amount of product on your brush. Instead all you're doing is forcing air into the tube, which can cause it to try out and become flaky.

Adding whole foods to your food processor

Cut food into small, more even chunks for easier processing. It will make less work for your small appliance and give you a better result.

Applying foundation with your fingers

Using your fingers to apply a liquid foundation will leave you with blotchy and streaky results. Also, touching your skin with your fingers all the time will do more harm them good.

Instead using a blending brush, sponge or makeup tool to get the perfect appearance.

Soda Can Tabs

They're not just meant to help you open your drink. The small hold in to the tab will help keep your straw in place while you drink too.

These great hacks will help so many easy tasks.
