Tutorial: Bored Hacker Life Hacks [Updated 6/19/21]

I'm always looking to exploit life to the fullest. Life hacks can be fun, amazing, and extremely helpful. So today, I'll share some of my favorite life hacks that I use. The newest life hacks are at the bottom.

Life Hack #1: Unshrink Shirts
Did your dryer shrink your favorite shirt? Doing this will relax the fibers.
1. Get a bucket or large bowl.
2.Fill it up with lukewarm water
3. Add 1 tablespoon of conditioner
4. Move the conditioner around to spread it throughout the water.
5. Dunk the shirt completely into the bottom of the bowl.
6. Let it sit in the water/conditioner for 30 minutes.
7. Take the shirt out and wash out the remaining conditioner in the sink with lukewarm water.
8.Stretch the shirt to your liking for a few minutes.
9. Finally, Hang dry the shirt.
10. Your all set and your shirt is like new!

Life hack #2: Easy Way to Disinfect Legos
Children’s toys are a breeding ground for germs. A dishwasher makes quick work of disinfecting toys that are washable, like Legos.
1. Drop the Legos in a laundry bag to keep them contained.
2. Run your dishwasher as usual.
3.But, remove the Legos before the drying cycle, letting them air dry completely on a towel.

Life hack #3: Zip-Tie Phone Stand
Make a quick stand by looping zip ties around your phone (1 on each side). 
1. All you have to do is tighten the zip ties until they are snug to the phone with the zip-tie heads facing down and near the edge of your phone (see pic). 
2. Don't completely the zip tie. 
3. Now you can watch video instructions or look at project drawings without having to hold it in your hands the whole time.

Life hack #4: Pasta Lighter
If you don't have a lighter to light candles for example, use pasta.
1. Light a piece of uncooked spaghetti using your stove. If electric, put the spaghetti tip on the electric stove burner.
2. It’ll start to burn, then a steady flame. This will reach into those deep candles and burn long enough to light the candles.

Life hack #5: Remove very small scratches in glass
For example, sometimes I get scratches on my wrist watch crystal. Doing this will solve that issue.
1. Get some white toothpaste and two cleaning cloths.
2. Put a dabbing of toothpaste on the glass surface.
3. With one cloth, wipe the toothpaste onto the glass. In a circular motion for about a minute.
4. Use the other cloth to wipe off the toothpaste.
5. Small scratches are all gone!

Life hack #6: Fog-Free Mirrors
Prevent your bathroom mirror from fogging up after a hot shower with dish soap. 
1. Apply a small amount of dish soap to the mirror.
2. Buff with a cloth in a circular motion.
3. Dry with cloth.

Life hack #7: Clean Up Paint in Carpet
Paint on the carpet sucks and I used to think it meant an entire carpet replacement, until I got a tip from a good handyman.
1. Pour some denatured alcohol onto a rag that's the same that is as close in color to the carpet, as the alcohol can transfer some of the rag’s color to the carpet.
2. Scrub away the paint.

Life hack #8: Remove Gum from Carpet
When gum freezes, it gets brittle and easily breaks apart. So, if you have gum stuck in your carpet, freeze it to remove it quickly and neatly.
1. Place a sandwich bag filled with ice cubes on top of the gum and wait about a half hour.
2. When the gum is frozen, break it apart and pull it out of the carpet.
3. No trace left behind.

Life hack #9: Your Shoes Will Look New
1. Get an old toothbrush and a little toothpaste. Non-gel white toothpaste works great for cleaning white-soled sneakers (colored toothpaste may stain rather than clean sneakers). 
2. Apply toothpaste to an old toothbrush and then work the paste into the dirty spots in a circular motion.
3. Leave the toothpaste on the shoes for about ten minutes.
4. Wipe it off with a hot damp towel.
5. Repeat the process if necessary.

Life hack #10: Coat Your Snow Shovel with Car Wax
Shoveling snow can suck, but when heavy snow sticks or freezes in clumps on the shovel, it can make shoveling really suck. Coat your shovel with car wax before heading out to clear your driveway and walking paths.

This tip works best with metal shovels: Follow the application instructions on the car wax package. Generally, car wax is applied in a thin layer using a damp cloth, allowed to dry, and then buffed off with a dry cloth. This leaves the shovel clean and lubricated, so the snow and ice won’t stick.
