Sometimes life gets in the way of your plans and you need to think on the fly. Luckily, there are some hacks to help you, courtesy of lifestyle expert Barbara Majeski.
If you are having guests over for dinner and forgot to chill the white wine, don’t panic. Majeski told Inside Edition if you wrap the bottle in a moist paper towel and put it in the freezer for five minutes, it will get chilled.
She recommends putting the slice in the microwave for 30 seconds along with a glass of water. Presto! Fresh-tasting 'za.
What if your favorite candle burns so low that you can't reach the wick with a typical lighter?
Majeski suggests using a dry piece of spaghetti as an extra-long match.
Finding the end of rolls of tape is another one of life's little annoyances. Majeski says to save a few tabs from loaves of bread and put them under the tape. That way, you will always have a starter tab.
Did you know you can also make your own smartphone speakers? Cut an X into two Solo Cups and a hole into a paper towel tube, Majeski says. Insert the tube into the cups and the phone into the tube to create an instant party.
When a battery inside a device dies and you do not have the right size to immediately replace it, you can take a smaller battery and put it in the slot and bridge the gap with tin foil.
If you are cutting an onion and want to take the sting out so your eyes do not tear, experts say to soak it in cold water before putting a knife to it.
Another interesting hack is if you pull a shirt out of a drawer and it has wrinkles all over it, you can throw it in the dryer with a damp wash cloth for about five minutes and the steam from the cloth will help take the wrinkles out of it.
