1. Pasta Lighter
2. Ceramic Mug As A Sharpening Stone
3. Use Isopropyl Alcohol to Resurrect Your Sharpies
This method can be applied differently for the various felt tip markers, but we'll use Sharpies as the example for this hack. Extract the nib from the pen, and deposit a few drops of isopropyl alcohol onto the felt material inside the pen. Give the marker a shake to make sure the alcohol has been absorbed.
4. Magnetized Drill
If you're worried about losing screws while working on DIY projects, this hack is for you. Some power drills come equipped with a magnetic plate on the base for this exact purpose, but if yours isn't, there's a hack for that.
