  • Parenting hack every time you have to yell at your child you put a quarter in a no yelling sock, eventually, you'll have a weapon... Hahahahaha
  • If you have metal that is covered in wax from a candle, put the metal in the freezer. The wax will get cold enough to pop off.
  • My life hack? If you use liquid washing machine detergent for your clothes, the stupid little measuring cup will get all soapy and gross if you don't wash it every time, and it's really annoying and takes forever to wash off. Well, don't walk to the sink any longer! Do what I do, throw the cup in the washer with the clothes. It comes out squeaky clean, and it uses any of the remaining soap in the cup so you don't waste it. It's lazy and frugal, which are like, my two most favorite things! LOL

  • Lifehack - Place whole Irish spring bar soap in mountain dew bottle mounted on a bamboo skewer. Place in your garden to keep deer away. The bottle blends in with the green in your garden and keeps the soap from dissolving and going everywhere. The skewer keeps the bottle off the ground to allow the scent from the soap to escape the bottle.
