Hey guys, what’s going on?
No scratch that, let’s tell you guys what we are up to – 14 incredible hacks to make life fun and easier for you this summer. Are you excited? Let’s dive in!
1. Keep bugs out of your drink
Do you just want to relax outside and sip your favorite drink but bugs are constantly in the way? Say no more, we got the solution right here. Carefully cut a small hole in a cupcake paper and gently place on the straw all the way down to cover your drink. Bugs won’t get in anymore!
2. No-mess Popsicle
Enjoying your Popsicle can sometimes get messy and that could be annoying. To prevent your hands from getting soiled, cut x in a cupcake wrapper and insert your Popsicle through it.
3. Easy drink lid
Remove the cover of kraft’s grated parmesan cheese bottle and place on your drink. The lid has two openings on both sides where you can drink directly from or you can simply put your straw in and enjoy long, sweet sips.
4. Make refreshing fruity ice cube drink
Do you have fruits going bad on your counter? You don’t have to throw them away. Carefully cut out the fresh parts and then dice them. Place them in an ice cube tray, fill the tray with water and freeze. Drop frozen fruits in your cup and add water. There you go, enjoy your refreshing drink.
5. Keep your wine cold
Have you ever been out on your porch relaxing and then you reach out to grab your glass of wine just to find out it is hot already? Ugh, so annoying. Luckily, there’s a solution to that, put a bunch of grapes in a bowl and freeze them. Drop a few grapes in a cup and pour in your wine. Your drink will stay cold longer!
6. Make a wine cooler
It’s just a matter of time before your wine bottle gets hot in the sun, but you can keep it cold. How? Get balloons and fill them with a small quantity of water. Freeze them. Put your wine bottle in a glass bowl and pile the frozen balloons around the wine.
7. Watermelon Popsicle
Eating your sliced watermelon can be a bit messy. Cut a large watermelon into halves and divide one half into four. Bring out four Popsicle sticks and stick them into the sliced watermelon. There goes your mess-free snack.
8. Thicken ice coffee
If your ice coffee tastes watery this is what you should do – pour the drink in an ice cube tray and freeze. Add the ice cubes to a cup and pour in your ice coffee. Your drink will taste thicker and better.
9. Easy way to mark your burgers
Use ketchup to make different inscriptions on each pair of sliced bread roll.
10. Easy snack containers
Pick up two or three bottles and remove the labels or paper wraps to make the bottles transparent. Fill each bottle with snacks of your choice.
11. Make adult popsicles
Use scissors to cut open otter pops. Pour a little out to create space for the alcohol you’re going to pour inside. When you’ve poured in the alcohol, seal off the open end with a hair straightener and freeze.
12. Peel Orange easily
Gently cut off one end of the orange. Use a table knife to cut lines on the orange peel from top to bottom until you’ve gone round. From the top of the open end, cut round to disconnect the peel. You can now peel out easily with your hands.
13. Mini campfire for s’mores
Fold a foil into a triangle. Place the tip of the triangle into a terracotta pot to line the pot to the top edge. Place a lump of coal inside the terracotta pot and fold the foil hanging outside over the coal, but not completely. Pour some charcoal lighter fluid on it and light it up. Use a roasting stick to roast your marshmallows and then assemble your s’mores.
14. Keep pasta salad colder longer
Pour some ice into a clean shower cap and then place your bowl of salad inside. Your pasta salad will be kept colder in the sun for a longer period.
