Posted on 09/24/2013 9:56:28 AM PDT by SeekAndFind
We've previously written about clever uses for everyday objects, but you can never have enough life-hack tips.
In a recent /r/AskReddit thread, the Reddit community dug deep to come up with even more neat uses for everyday objects that are easily found in the home.
Some of their responses were absolutely genius. Here are some of our favorites:
"To remove sticker residue, make a mix of baking soda and just a couple drops of water and rub it over the goo. I prefer that method over using smelly solvents or oil that I'd have to wash off with soap." - truckstruck
"Use floss to cut cheese." - TurnaboutBeggings
"It's also good for cake, or really any softer food that needs to be cut." - -GregTheGreat-
"Put a slice of bread in a box of cookies to keep the cookies moist. I don't know how this works but my friends who tried it were as surprised as I was that it does work." - bankergoesrawrr
"Cut the clips off of the cheap pants/shorts hangers from retail stores and use them as potato chip clips." - evo_overlord_lite

Who on Earth filters shaving water? Never heard of that.
Here’s one: cardboard egg cartons + Dryer lint + wood chips + melted candle bits = fire starters.
I’ve used the wide blue broccoli rubber-band as a vacuum belt until I could get to the store.
Already used the clips from broken hangers as chip-clips.
Seriesly...you pay $100 to cut the cheese?
Dryer lint = wipe material when check crankcase oil.
Here's my recipe: rolls of toilet paper + lighter fluid + road flares = fire starters.
I love this recipe for window cleaner. I use it as an all purpose cleaner to wipe down the counter top or kitchen table.
2 c. water
1/4 c. cleaning vinegar
1/2 t. dish detergent
DNE... does not exist.
While camping and such I’ve used the tines of plastic forks to hold a bag closed. I hadn’t thought about the hanger clips, that was a nice tip for me.
