He Shows His Wife A Surprising Trick About Chinese Take Out That She Never Knew
FaithTap Staff 11/24/2015
Just when you thought you had it all figured out, learned all there was to learn, and had it all down pat...we come along and rock your world. Prepare yourself for some real "Aha!" moments!
Save your furniture, use the lid
Avoid those nasty, unattractive sweat rings left behind by your soft drink and use the lid as a coaster! And if you are afraid of spilling your topless drink, grab an extra lid!
No spoon? No luck? No more!
Have you ever found yourself at work, finally taking a break to sit and have a snack cup, only to realize that you've forgotten to pack a spoon? You are left with two choices. Either attempt to fish out the applesauce using only your tongue (a skill that most have NOT mastered) or you go for "the pour" (could get messy). Now you have a better option, tap into your "crafty" side, to construct a simple spoon from the foil lid. Genius!
Never be "foiled" again!
You open that flap of the tinfoil box, ever so gently glide out the perfect amount of foil, and the entire roll comes tumbling out. You are left with an endless, crinkled stretch of foil, it's so frustrating!
You are not alone! This is why many manufacturers have installed lock safe tabs on the sides of the box which will hold the roll in the box. So next time be sure to punch the tabs prior to use, it will save foil and your sanity!
When in doubt...tie the knot!
You are hosting a fantastic family gathering at your home and you've planned the event down to the last detail. Everyone has been lounging around enjoying "the big game," when all of a sudden the TV goes dark, during the final seconds of the final play. Don't be "that guy." Loop your plugs together before connecting them to avoid a disconnect, and a HUGE party foul!
Slurp more, spill less
Do you watch your child lose the first sip of EVERY juice box with that initial squeeze? And often times that first squeeze lands perfectly on his shirt, resulting in an atrocious stain, right? If this scene is all too familiar to you, then you aren't yet aware of the built in handles on the juice box. Try this trick to save the first sip, and your child's shirt!
Tiny but TOUGH!
You shake the Tic Tac box, only to find that your hand is empty. So you shake a bit harder, and you end up with a handful of mints (and a few on the floor). Tic Tacs may be tiny, but they can be tough! Did you know that the lid of a Tic Tac container has a built-in area for a single mint to gently slide into? Well, you do now! No more making use of the "five second rule!"
Avoid the stirring saga, flip it!
No matter how much, or how carefully, you stir your natural peanut butter...the inevitable outcome is ALWAYS a sloshy oil spill at first, and thick, crumbly, dry scoops of peanut butter at the bottom. Until now. Avoid all the hassle and mess, and store your jar upside down! Stored in this manner, the oil will gradually rise and disperse on its own. Make the peanut butter work for you!
What the world needs now...is more ketchup!
Do you find yourself making multiple trips back to the condiment stand for yet another ketchup refill? Are you someone who licks the bottom of the little white paper cups to get every last DROP? Then this will be music to your ears! Simply pull on the edges of the little paper condiment cup to create more space. More space...equals more ketchup...equals happier you!
Taking the plunge
Are you aware that there are different plungers, for different types of jobs? When unclogging a drain with a flat surface, such as a shower drain or a kitchen sink, you will want to try the traditional "cup plunger."
If your having an issue with a clogged toilet, the "flange plunger" will be your best friend. Using the right tool for this dirty job is essential!

Ordering-in just got even easier!
Did you know that those cute, convenient white cartons used for asian food, not only make wonderful storage containers, they can also easily be pulled apart to form serving plates! Forget debating whose turn it is to do dishes, and argue over who picks the evening movie instead!
Less paste, same shine
We've all watched the toothpaste commercials that advertise glamorous photos of creamy, velvety paste spanning the length of the bristles. Oh, and they always have the end of the toothpaste curled up and over in such a fancy, attractive way. Am I right or am I right?
Time to ditch the fancy look, and get practical. As it turns out, we actually only need a pea-size amount of paste to get the job done. Any more than that is a waste! So save yourself time and money trying to perfect the "luscious toothpaste curl," and use only a small amount the next time you brush!
Less yogurt irritation, more yogurt enjoyment
Tired of being unsuccessful at retrieving your yogurt's topping from the side compartment of the container? Unless you have a dainty spoon or a patient personality...you and your oversized spoon reach a crossroads every time. And that last bit of granola is left JUST out of your reach. Ugh!
End the insanity
Put a stop to the madness! Try flipping the topping half over top of the yogurt for a simple pour. Keep your oversized spoon, problem solved!
Public potty phobias...a thing of the past
Most people lay the paper toilet seat cover on the toilet with the flap towards the back of the toilet oftentimes the paper is pulled into the still water.
Try turning the protective paper around so the flap dangles over the front of the toilet, so it doesn't touch the water at all. You'll be in and out of that public restroom in no time at all.
The soda tab, it JUST may save your reputation
You look across the room at that cute guy from the gym. Just as you lock eyes with him, you lean in to take a sip from the straw you've just inserted into your soda. And then, the unthinkable...your straw has begun to float, your mouth is hanging wide open, and your tongue is frantically searching to catch hold of it. You have the "darting tongue look" going on. Yikes!
Next time, plan ahead. Twist your soda tab around, insert the straw through the hole, and secure your straw...as well as your reputation.
Infamous "pipe cleaner" crafts
We've all seen those adorable pipe cleaner crafts that come home with our children from school celebrations, grandma's house, and after spending a week at summer camp. After you've displayed them for a week, then what?
Pipe cleaners...who knew?
Those pipe cleaners can be SO much more than "cute" and "crafty!" The next time you are looking for a tool to dust between the keys on your computer keyboard, or you are trying to think of a new way to teach your daughter the letters of the alphabet, or your makeup containers need a little extra tidying, or you could use a new keyring, or the messy lamp cord behind the dresser has become the ultimate eyesore...think pipe cleaner!
The pipe cleaner possibilities are endless!
In need of a pencil grip for your son? Forget the dreaded "single item store run," grab a pipe cleaner from your stash in the pantry!

The next time you are craving a sweet nibble, place your thumb on top of the first tip, and pull down toward the chocolate bar. This will ensure a clean break, and a satisfied you!

Annoyed with those challenging, crusty, cemented stains left on the counter after you've laid a sauce covered spoon down to rest? Scrub no more! Make use of the built-in "spoon holder" found on many pots and pans! Now YOU can teach your GRANDMA something!
Fear the floss no longer!
Tired of the tender, sore, throbbing fingers you are left with after a vigorous floss session? Kiss those days goodbye because by tying your strand of floss into a simple loop you will no longer fear floss time, and your fingers won't either!
