4. Soften Butter 

First up, we’ve got a hack for softening butter. If you’re like me, you love having softened butter on hand for baking or spreading on toast. But sometimes, you forget to take the butter out of the fridge ahead of time and it’s just too hard to work with. Well, this hack is for you!

6. No More Mosquitoes 

If you’re like most people, mosquitoes are one of your least favorite insects. They’re annoying, they bite, and they can carry disease. But did you know that there’s a way to get rid of them for good? No more mosquito bites means no more itchy welts! Here’s what you need to do:

– Find a small container that has a lid, like a pill bottle.

– Cut a small hole in the lid of the container.

– Fill the container with about an inch of water.

– Add a drop or two of dish soap to the water and stir gently.

– Place the container where you’ve seen mosquitoes before, like near a window or in your backyard.

The mosquitoes will be attracted to the water, but they won’t be able to escape because of the dish soap. This life hack is a great way to get rid of mosquitoes without using harmful chemicals. Give it a try next time you’re dealing with these pesky pests!

7. Keep Squirrels From Eating Your Plants

8. Repair Brown Spots 

We’ve all been there. You’re out and about living your best life when you notice a giant brown spot on your shirt. Repairing brown spots doesn’t have to be difficult or expensive. You can quickly and easily remove them with this hack. All you need is a little bit of white vinegar and a cotton ball. Simply soak the cotton ball in vinegar and dab it on the spot. The acid in the vinegar will break down the stain and remove it from your clothing.

9. Newspaper Weeds Away

We all know that weeding can be a pain. But did you know that you can actually use newspapers to help prevent weeds from growing in your garden beds? Simply wet a few sheets of newspaper and lay them over the area where you’re trying to prevent weeds. The Newspaper will block out the sun and prevent weed seeds from germinating. Genius, right?

10. Goodbye Fruit Flies 

Keep fruit flies away by placing a piece of ripe fruit in a jar and covering it tightly with plastic wrap. Then, poke small holes in the top with a toothpick. The fruit flies will be attracted to the fruit, but they won’t be able to get out and will eventually die. Goodbye, fruit flies!
