6. When shopping online, always read the 1 star reviews first.

10. Running the sticky part of a Post-It note along your keyboard will help remove bits of food, pieces of grime, etc.

11. Check Your Cell Phone While House-Hunting - Make sure youíve got cell service while youíre house hunting. You wouldnít want to move into a place where you couldnít take calls.

12. Remove excess paint from your brush by placing a rubber band around the open paint can.

13. Cut Perfect Cinnamon Rolls With Floss - Dental floss will help you slice through dough with ease, giving you perfectly shaped cinnamon rolls, cookies and more.

14. Apply Eyeliner With A Spoon, Placing a spoon on the top of your lid will help guide you so that you get a perfect line each and every time.

15. Placing cheerios, trail mix and more in empty coffee creamer bottles allows you to easily pour just the right amount out to keep your toddler entertained. Theyíre not only great for in house storage but at the park, in the pocket of your car, or on a boat, as it keeps the snacks from getting smushed.

16. Identify Your Keys at a Glance - To make it easier to quickly find my most used keys, I paint both sides of the key head with brightly colored nail polish. I use a different color for each key. The nail polish is extremely durable and youíll be surprised how much longer it lasts than spray paint.

17. Pool Noodle Water Hose - If you need to fill up a bucket that wonít fit under your sinkís faucet, bust out a pool noodle. Set the bucket on the floor, slip the pool noodle over the faucet and run it down to the bucket.

18. Bring Dead Sharpies Back to Life - When it comes to workshop problems, dried out Sharpies arenít major. But they are annoying when you canít find another one to mark your measurements or project notes. To bring your permanent marker back to life, simply remove the back from the maker. This will be different for each brand of permanent marker, for Sharpies simply remove the back nib. Next, deposit a few drops of isopropyl, rubbing alcohol, onto the felt material inside. Shake the marker a bit to ensure the rubbing alcohol is absorbed. Itís the solvent that the ink is mixed with that dries out first, making the pigment unable to flow. Once the felt absorbs the rubbing alcohol for a couple of minutes the marker will be practically good as new.

19. Magnetized Drill Hack - I like to keep screws very close at hand when Iím working on a project. How close? I stick them right to my drill. Some drills are equipped with a magnetized portion for this purpose, but if yours isnít, hereís an easy fix. Hot glue a rare earth magnet to the back of your drill and slap a few screws on it.

20. Write Notes on the Washer - When you put a load of clothes into your washing machine, use a dry erase marker to note on the lid which items should not go into the dryer. That way, whoever switches the load from the washing machine to the dryer will know which items to leave out for line drying. The enamel finish on most washing machine lids is similar to a whiteboard, and dry erase markers can be removed easily with a dry paper towel.

21. Fix Wobbly Furniture with a Penny - Need to shim a wobbly bench or table, but donít have time to run to the home center for furniture feet? No worries, just reach for your pocket change. You can use a coin to shim wobbly furniture in a pinch. Use hot glue to attach the coin to the problem area, adding additional coins as needed. Coins work well as a temporary fix because they come in a variety of thicknesses and cost less than a dollar.

22. Coat Your Snow Shovel with Car Wax - Shoveling snow can be frustrating enough, but when heavy snow sticks or freezes in clumps on the shovel, it can make the job even more difficult! You can avoid this issue by first coating your shovel with car wax before heading out to clear your driveway and walking paths. This tip works best with metal shovels. Follow the application instructions on the car wax package. Generally, car wax is applied in a thin layer using a damp cloth, allowed to dry, and then buffed off with a dry cloth. This leaves the shovel clean and lubricated, so the snow and ice wonít stick.

23. Renew your furniture in Minutes - My son plastered all of the furniture in his room with stickers from skate shops, arenas and gumball machines. Once he moved out, I wanted to use his furniture in the new guest room, without the stickers. I peeled off all the stickers using a putty knife in combination with hair dryer, to soften the adhesive. Some are harder to remove than others, but I had them all off in a couple hours.

24. Secret Cash Stash - Sometimes I donít want to carry my wallet around. At the beach, for example, when I have to leave my belongings unattended while I go for a swim. But I still need cash on hand for food, drinks, etc. So I turned an empty tube of lip balm into a secret cash stash. You could do the same with an empty stick of sunscreen, too. A long nail works great for digging out any remaining bits of lip balm, and a cotton swab wipes away any waxy residue. Not only is the tube small enough to fit in my pocket, but itíll also fool any potential thieves.

25. DIY Drip Waterer - Hereís an easy way to turn any hose into a drip watering hose. Drill ⅛" holes every 2" and screw a cap on the end. Weave the hose around your plants and turn on the spigot. Youíll have to do some testing to figure out the right setting. To make watering even easier, I added a programmable faucet timer to the hose.

26. No Air Pump? No Problem! Use a Shop Vacuum - If you donít have an air compressor to inflate your air mattresses or pool toys, you can use your shop vacuum instead. Just pop the top off of a plastic squeeze bottle and fit the top to your vacuumís hose. You may have to use duct tape. Once the top is secured to the hose, attach the hose to your vacuumís exhaust port. Itíll blow up your inflatables in no time. To deflate, attach the hose to the vacuum port and suck the air out.

27. Do something unusual when locking the door before a long trip to remember that youíve definitely done it.

28. Dryer Lint Fire Starter - To properly build a fire, you need to have tinder, easy lighting material, kindling, finger size sticks, and fuel, logs. We all have a readily available supply of tinder - dryer lint, To make fire starters, I stuff empty toilet paper tubes with dryer lint. My dryer lint logs light quickly and easily burn long enough to light up the kindling.

29. Carrying a sheet of plywood by yourself is awkward and hard on your back. The best method Iíve found is to make a loop from an 18'. length of rope and wrap it around two corners. Now I can use the rope as a handle.

30. Easy Mulch Spreading - Getting mulch up close to flowers and bushes is easier if the mulch is in a small container. So I place buckets and pails in my wheelbarrow and fill them up with mulch. It doesnít matter much if the mulch misses the bucket and lands in the wheelbarrow. Once youíre done dumping the buckets, dump whatís left in the wheelbarrow in an open area and spread it out.

30. Simple Lawn Edging - To edge your lawn, garden, or flowerbed, lay down a 2◊6. While holding the board with your foot, drive a flat spade along the boardís edge. Move the board as needed to create a clean, straight line.

31. Remove Gum from Carpet - When gum freezes, it gets brittle and easily breaks apart. So, if you have gum stuck in your carpet, freeze it to remove it quickly and neatly. Place a sandwich bag filled with ice cubes on top of the gum and wait about a half hour. When the gum is frozen, break it apart and pull it out of the carpet. No trace left behind.

32. Your Shoes Will Look New - All you need is an old toothbrush and a little toothpaste to get your old sneakers looking like new. Non gel white toothpaste works great for cleaning white-soled sneakers, colored toothpaste may stain rather than clean sneakers. Apply toothpaste to an old toothbrush and then work the paste into the dirty spots. Leave the toothpaste on the shoes for about 10 minutes, and then wipe it off with a damp towel. Repeat the process if necessary. The ingredients in toothpaste may vary from brand to brand, so make sure to try this method on a small unnoticeable spot on your sneakers before applying it to the rest of the shoe. The same toothpaste cleans hazy headlight lenses to a factory new condition.

33. Effectively and Safely Sweep Up Glass - Everyone who has ever swept the floor with a standard broom and dustpan knows about that annoying line of dust. Itís the line that just wonít disappear no matter how many times you try and sweep it up. To get rid of this annoying line, simply tape the front of the dustpan to the floor with blue painters tape, so no residue will be left on the floor. It will seal and cover the gap between the floor and your pan. This handy hint also works great for sweeping up more menacing items like glass. The dustpan and tape combo will ensure that all of those little glass shards will be in the pan and not on the floor.

34. DIY Car Mats - One simple way to keep your car clean is to cut scraps of old carpet to fit on the floor as mats. We found our carpet scraps for less than $2 at Home Depot. And when the DIY carpet scraps inevitably get all dirty with mushy winter snow or summer sand, you could either give them a wash or toss them out and make more. A word of caution, do not put these DIY car mats on the driverís side of the car unless grippers are attached on the bottom side to ensure that the mat does not slip forward while driving.

35. Use a Ceramic Mug as a Sharpening Stone - The bottom of most ceramic coffee mugs have a flat, unglazed ring that is the perfect surface for giving that dull knife or blade a quick sharpening. And if you find yourself in need of sharpening a utility knife, pocket blade or scissors and donít have access to a sharpening stone, you can simply flip over a ceramic coffee mug and use the outer edge of the bottom, the non glazed part, as an emergency sharpening stone. Just run the blade across the bottom of the mug at a 45° angle, working from the one end of the blade to the tip. Next, slide the blade downward in one direction, keeping your fingers out of the way as you work. This isnít a perfect solution for continually sharpening your blades, but if you need to quickly sharpen and clean up the edge of a blade this method will do in a pinch. We do recommend eventually investing in a blade sharpening kit.

36. Put a wooden spoon across a boiling pot of water to keep it from boiling over.

37. Erase Permanent Marker on a Dry Erase Board - Who hasnít accidentally written on a white board with a permanent marker? Luckily, itís easier to remove than you think. Simply draw over your permanent marker artwork with a dry erase marker, and then wipe the marks away with an eraser or dry cloth. Your dry erase board will be good as new.

38. Support a Tension Rod with Water Bottle Caps - My wife sews kids clothes and uses a curtain tension rod to hang them in a closet. She explained to me one day that the pole was frequently slipping and falling down. So, I searched and found an object that could be screwed into the wall and would fit around the ends of the tension rod, water bottle caps. I used drywall screws to secure two water bottle caps into studs in the closet walls, and then I mounted the tension rod inside the bottle caps. The lip on each cap provides just enough support for the tension rod, so it doesnít fall down anymore.

39. Instant Picture Frame Bumpers - Stop wall frames from slipping out of place and scratching the wall paint by putting small dots of hot glue on the back corners of the frame. The hot glue not only prevents movement, but it also holds the picture away from the wall to prevent scratches and nicks.

40. Make Any Rug Extra Comfortable - Want to make any rug feel extra plush and luxurious? Add a layer of carpet padding underneath your rug, itís thicker and cheaper than a typical rug pad.

41. Taller Table Hack - I have a typical 6' folding table that I use to layout certain projects. But the height of the table is meant for someone sitting in a chair. Constantly bending over when using the table was starting to hurt my back, so I came up with a solution. I used a couple of 2' lengths of 1¼" PVC pipe found at my local home center, and cut four 11" stilts for my table. I slipped the pipes onto the legs and it raised the table about 6", bringing my work surface to a more comfortable height! The bend in the table legs at about 5" from the ground holds the pipes securely in place, so my table is still as sturdy as ever. The stilts can be removed if I ever need to lower the height of the table to use it while sitting in a chair.

42. Quick Cold Drinks - Does wrapping a wet paper towel around a warm canned or bottled beverage and putting it in the freezer cool it faster than if there were no paper towel around it? Some folks theorize that the can is analogous to your body, and the wet paper towel is analogous to sweat. Since itís well known that evaporation of sweat pulls heat away from your body, causing a cooling effect, the same should happen with a canned beverage in the freezer, right? There are lots of expert opinions about this online supporting both sides of the argument. Iíve had many opportunities to experiment, and to me, it seems to make a difference. Try it out for yourself.

43. Save Your Phone Charger - To make your otherwise fragile phone charger last for more than a couple of weeks, try out this simple hack. Start by removing the spring from a pen. Next, stretch one end of the spring out a bit so it can fit around the charger cable. You might need to use pliers for this. Now, wind the spring around the cable until it is completely on the charger cable. Next, take appropriately sized heat shrink tubing and slip it over the phone charger and spring. Use a lighter to warm the heat shrink tubing until it conforms around the charger and spring.

44. Pinching the end of a banana is a far easier way to open it.

45. Take a look at peoples feet when they're talking to you, If their feet are pointed away from you, the person you are talking to wants the conversation to end.

52. Tape Template - Take the guesswork out of hanging picture frames, shelves and other items with keyhole hangers. To begin: Stick a piece of masking tape over the keyholes, and then trace over the keyholes with a pencil, making a template. Making sure itís level, stick the template on the wall where you want the shelf. Drill your anchor holes or screws into the template and remove it.

53. 5: Tired of your Taxi driver driving slow to get the meter up? Make yourself look sick, cough and sneeze, and he will speed up to prevent catching something.

54. DIY Wood Filler - To make a versatile wood filler for free, just grab a paper plate and combine Elmerís or any other wood glue with sawdust. Like other wood fillers, you can stain or finish it, but the color will likely be a bit different than the surrounding wood. But, itís sandable, paintable and long lasting.

55. When taking pictures your smile will appear more genuine if you squint your eyes a little.

56. Get Dents Out of Wood - Dents in wood surfaces can be annoying. But fret not, they can be fixed. Simply soak a washcloth in water and ring it out a bit so itís not sopping wet. Put the damp washcloth on the affected area. The water will wick through the wood, and thatís fine. Now, with your iron on its highest setting, place it on the damp washcloth over the affected area, and make small movements back and forth and in circles. Press down firmly and continue until your washcloth is dry. It wonít take long to evaporate. At this point, the wood fibers are absorbing the water and should expand back to where they were originally. Continue this process and repeat by adding more water until the dents rise up to be flush with the rest of the material.

57. Instead of removing the foil from dressing or oil, poke holes in it, instead. That way youíll never have dressing come rushing out of the bottle too quickly again.

58. Clean Up Paint in Carpet - I used to think dropping a loaded paintbrush on the carpet meant replacing the carpet, until a former foreman told me this little tip. Pour some denatured alcohol onto a rag and scrub away the paint. Use a rag that is as close in color to the carpet, as the alcohol can transfer some of the ragís color to the carpet.

59. Mark the end of tape with a paper clip - Your days of hunting to find the edge of the tape are over if you use this simple trick.

60. How to Make Durable Sandpaper - I do a lot of finish sanding freehand, without a sandpaper block, so I can smooth edges and get into nooks and crannies. But the finer grits are usually bonded to thinner paper and, at least for me, the paper is too thin and ends up tearing long before the grit wears out. So I apply duct tape to the back of the sandpaper. The sandpaper is still flexible enough to sand a tight radius and itís far more durable. You can use this super strong sandpaper like a shoeshine rag.

62. When traveling put a bar of scented soap in the same compartment as the dirty laundry, It will keep your clothes smelling clean.

63. Staple Remover Hack - A staple remover has perfectly sized thin teeth that make them perfect to easily slide between the rings of a key ring. When you clamp them down, it spreads the key rings apart and makes it easy to slide a new key on. This saves you the hassle of trying to pry open the key ring with your nails.

64. Pasta Lighter - Weíre sure youíre stocking up on sweet smelling candles to make your home extra cozy for the colder months. But, if your candles are burning too low to reach the wick, thereís no reason to go without your favorite scent. Instead of burning your fingers, light a piece of uncooked spaghetti. Itíll reach into those deep candles and burn long enough to light the candles on grandpaís birthday cake.

65. Lemon juice remove highlighter - Ever wish you could remove highlighter marks from a book? Lemon juice fades highlighter enough to make it virtually undetectable. Cut a lemon in half and get some juice on a cotton swab. Run the swab over the highlighted text and watch the color fade. Lemon juice from a container also seems to do the trick. Though not quite as well on the pieces we tested, and the older the mark, the more stubborn it is to remove.

66. Lampshade Lint Roller - Fabric lampshades are magnets for dust and pet hair. You canít just throw them in the washing machine, so what do you do? Iíve found that a lint roller works really well. Be careful though, as lampshades are fragile and can even become brittle. A torn lampshade is worse than a dirty one.

67. Picture Frame Message Board - Iím all for dry erase message boards, but theyíre usually pretty unattractive. So I make message boards using nice picture frames. To make these message boards, grab a picture frame and some paper. Cut the paper to fit the frame and set it in behind the glass. The glass makes an excellent dry erase surface.

68. Get Wrinkles Out of Your Laundry with Zero Effort - Ditch the time consuming iron or handheld steamer to get wrinkles out of a shirt or slacks. Throw a few ice cubes or a wet washcloth in the dryer with your wrinkled clothes. As the ice melts and the water turns to steam, it will remove the wrinkles. This trick isnít as effective with heavier clothing but is a miracle for lighter fabrics. The best part is that you donít have to set the dryer for longer than 10 minutes for it to work.

69. Make Your Own Ice Pack - Ice packs are a great way to keep your lunch cool, but theyíre a bit expensive if youíre in the habit of losing them. This DIY ice pack hack is reusable, so it is good for the environment as well. First, purchase an inexpensive pack of sponges or just find some old ones around the house. Grab a big bowl of water and let the sponges completely soak up as much water as they possibly can. After soaking the sponges, put each sponge in a small sandwich bag with a zip close. These bags serve two purposes. First, as the ice melts, the bag contains the water so it doesnít make a mess in your lunch bag. Second, keeping the water contained allows the melted sponge to reabsorb the water so it is ready to refreeze for the next day. Now, freeze the wet and bagged sponges overnight. In the morning, all you need to do is toss the ice pack into your lunch container.

70. Fill A Large Bucket With A Dustpan - Just put the dustpan in the sink, handle facing outwards, and let the water flow into the handle (like a funnel) and out of the sink, into your bucket.

The cauterized edges are as strong as the factory sealed edges.

73. Use Tabs To Create Extra Hanging Space - Adding soda tabs to your hangers will give you even more space to hang things.

74. Plant-in-a-Pot Landscaping Design - Ever wish you could reorganize your garden after seeing how the mature plants look? Hereís a clever way to do it. Youíll need a bunch of pots of the same size, so theyíll nest in each other. Put your plants in doubled pots, and then bury them at ground level. Whenever you want a change, lift out the top pot and put in a different one. This method is also really slick for bringing plants indoors over the winter. This method is great for quickly changing out seasonal plants, and allows for easy experimentation with color and placement of plants and flowers.

75. When you feel you need something, but you can't understand what it is, it is water. It is always water.

76. Aloe vera ice cubes - Aloe vera makes sunburned skin feel so much better already, but imagine if it were cold to boot. Thatís the ultimate relief, right there.

77. Zip Tie Phone Stand - When referencing projects plans or a photo for inspiration while working on a DIY project, most of us use our phones to display images or instructional videos. The only problem with this method is that our phones donít prop themselves up, making it difficult to see at the images while working. You can make a smartphone stand out of just about anything these days, but it doesnít get much simpler than looping zip ties around your phone, 1 on each side. All you have to do is tighten the zip ties until they are snug to the phone with the zip tie heads facing down and near the edge of your phone. Now you can watch video instructions or look at project drawings without having to hold it in your hands the whole time.

78. Lawn Mower Grass Chute Saver - To avoid a lot of string trimmer work, I like to mow as close as possible to trees and buildings. But the grass chute on my riding mower prevents it. So I drilled a hole in the chute and tied a rope from the chute to a handle on the side of the tractor. Now I can lift up the chute without missing a beat, and cut way down on string trimmer work.
