Grilling hot dogs

When you are grilling hot dogs for a big party, it is very likely to forget which ones you already flipped. To prevent that from happening, just arrange 2 skewers, soaked in water, in a parallel position and thread each hot dog horizontally onto both sticks. Place the racks on the grill, turn them once, and they will end up evenly cooked!

Shaky ceiling fan

If your ceiling fan is shaking due to instable blades, attach a clothespin to the edge of one blade (halfway from the tip), adding some weight to it, and start the fan on a slow speed. If the vibration continues, repeat the process to the next one until it stops and you find out which blade is weak. Fix the problem by removing the clothespin from the fan and gluing one or two coins to the top of the blade to bring back stability.

Gift wrap substitute

Get inspired by Hershey’s Kisses Chocolate and improvise a cute gift wrap in a couple minutes. Place a paper plate on a large piece of aluminum foil, set the gift on the plate and wrap the foil up and around, twisting it to meet at the top and molding it to look like the sweet. Insert a long strip of white paper and use it as your message tag.

Trimming hair bangs

For an easy bang trim, just comb the hair dry and place a long strip of transparent tape on the area, aligning the top edge of it where you intend to make the cut. This flexible guide will prevent you from making any mistakes, and will keep all cut strands stuck to it, helping the cleanup as well.

Improvise mini ice packs

Do not discard those small packets (mustard, soy sauce, ketchup etc.) from take-out and delivered orders. Instead, store them in the freezer and take with you when you go out with the kids. They may be very useful, as mini cold packs, in case of a little bruise while playing outdoors.

Keep a rug in place

For a slippery rug, apply thick lines of hot glue on its underside, working the gun in a zig zag design, and let it dry completely. The adhesive will help the rug to stay in place.
