15 Home Hacks That Nobody Thought Of Before

Move over, Pinterest! We've got some serious home hacking skills that are about to blow your mind. These hacks will make your life easier and save you money. Who doesn't love that?

1. Pasta Lighter

If your candles are almost burnt to the bottom of the container, and you can't reach the wick easily, light a piece of spaghetti! It's long enough to reach the bottom of the candle, and you won't be at risk of burning yourself.

2. Ceramic Mug As A Sharpening Stone

The bottom of most ceramic coffee mugs is flat and unglazed, making an excellent sharpening surface for a pair of scissors or a dull blade. 

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.

5. Write Notes on Your Washer

Take a dry erase marker and make your lists on your washing machine. The enamel finish on most washing machines is similar to a whiteboard, so you can wipe it off with a rag or a paper towel when the load is done.
