3 Life Hacks That Actually Work!

I’m sure we’ve all heard about various “life hacks” to make our lives easier, but have you ever tried any of them? Or are you left wondering if they really work? Here are 3 life hacks that I’ve come across that I can tell you actually do work – try it for yourself! 

Get Rid of Ink Stains

Have you ever been using a pen and realized you had ink stains all over your hands? Just spray the ink with hairspray and wash your hands with water! Voila! The ink disappears. This is one of those life hacks that pretty much anyone could use! 

Keep Bananas Fresh Longer

Fresh fruit is notorious for going bad quick, but if you want to make your bananas stay fresher for a little longer…pull them apart! I know there are tons of stands where you just hang the bananas from them, but don’t do this! Pull them apart and just keep them in a bowl and they will stay fresher a bit longer! 

Stop Hiccups – Quick! 

I don’t think I’ve ever met a single person who said they liked getting the hiccups. I don’t get them too often anymore, but I have found myself randomly waking up with them and they’re so annoying!. If you’re dealing with the hiccups, eat a spoonful of peanut butter. Seriously! When I get them, I just spoon out some peanut butter, eat it, and that’s it. No need to wait – they are immediately gone. This is seriously one of my most favorite – and most used – life hacks. 

Have you tried any of these life hacks before? How did they work for you? Share your own hacks in the comments!

    Oh that’s interesting with the bananas. I read that if you wrap cling wrap around the stems, they’ll stay fresh longer. What does the pulling them apart do?

  2. I’d rather deal with hiccups than eat peanut butter! lol.
    Bananas don’t last long enough in our house to go brown… And we’re weird and each like them at different ripeness. 🙂 It’s a good trick though, I’ll suggest that one to my mum.

  3. Uhm, I kind of want to get hiccups now so I can try that trick! And the banana trick is excellent! I always wait for them to get extra brown for banana bread but I have some that really desperately need to be used ASAP!!

  4. ANY excuse to eat peanut butter is a good one for me! And I’m going to have to try the banana trick. Mine ALWAYS go bad. Thanks for the tips 🙂

    I haven’t ever heard of the peanut butter trick, that’s amazing! I have a tried and true method that works for our family….if we get them we drink water upside down. You bend over at your waist all the way, tip the cup away from you and drink with your head upside down. I don’t know why it works but it does lol! Gotta try the peanut butter next time though, I love peanut butter!
