This is a life-saver if your fridge went haywire when you had gone traveling somewhere. FIll up a pot with water, then put the suspicious eggs inside.

Want some more egg hacking after you made sure you won't get hit with salmonella? Fill a coffee mug halfway with water and crack an egg gently into it.

There is a certain level of desperation that comes when you gotta fill up a big mop bucket but all you have is an incredibly shallow sink that it won't fit in. If a hose is out of the question, then maybe its time to use another essential cleaning tool — one of those dust pans with a curved handle. If you place it just right on the sink, you can use it as a guide that funnels the water straight into the bucket!
Say you like your wine chilled, but of course, you can't let it get watered down with ice cubes. What you can do to cool them down is place some frozen grapes in their instead. The best part of this hack is that when you're finished drinking, you have a boozy snack.
Real talk? This kind of packaging is a nightmare to open - even using scissors can be a hassle. Oddly enough, a can opener is an efficient way of taking apart this demon plastic. Just use the opener as intended; place the blade on the edge and go to town on it.

Make a drink of champions with your iced coffee by making a huge change in the actual ice. Take your ice tray and pour your favorite kind of joe ( with cream, black, whatever) and let it freeze overnight. Now when you have your iced coffee tomorrow it won't end up watered down.
Craving a tasty taco bowl but only have a bunch of soft tortillas? If there is an oven and muffin pan on deck, flip the pan around and place the tortillas between the muffins cups. If you bake them just right you will get them in the right shape.

A cramped garage will end up with scratched car doors and annoyed owners. But if you have some pool noodles you can cut one in half and attach it to the wall (glue, caulk, whatever) at the level of your car door. It'll work as a buffer that blocks it from hitting the wall.
14. Move Your Stack Of Books With A Rolling Suitcase
Your bookcase is emptied out for moving but every box you put them in are falling apart because they are so heavy. A smart option that won't throw your back out is to stuff them in any suitcase with wheels. They're basically designed to hauls stuff way past 50 pounds anyway, right?
