20+ Life Hacks From Ingenious People Who Could Work at the Ministry of Creativity
Life is too short to wear old jeans and pit cherries. We just have to add a bit of imagination and creativity to our lives to make our everyday duties a bit easier.
Bright Side’s editorial team never grows tired of admiring people who can find an easy solution to any problem thanks to their resourcefulness. We surfed the Internet one more time and are ready to share some new life hacks with you.
Owners of dishwashers know that they should put salt in their washing machines from time to time to regenerate the ion-exchange resin that softens the water and removes white deposits from the dishes. The only problem is that this salt costs a fortune (starting from $1.50 per 2.2 lb). But you can find special tableted salt in construction shops that’s 4 times cheaper. And it’s even more convenient to add it to your washing machine. © speakingloosery / Pikabu

“My life will never be the same…”
My doctor showed me how to get rid of ingrown nails with the help of dental floss. You slide your dental floss under the nail as far as possible and leave a piece on both sides hanging. This will alleviate the pressure and eliminate the pain. If you change dental floss daily, your nail will start to grow upwards and out of your skin. © Rexanne / Reddit
