Now, this one is for all of you chips / lays lovers out there. We all know how messy our fingers get, when we eat those chips, especially when it is big sized packet and we got to dig our hand deep into the packet to get to those chips, plus it becomes kind of inconvenient and add to this, the fact that both of our hands need to be engaged just to eat some pieces of those delicious yet “not so healthy” chips.( one hand for holding and other for picking up the chips and eating).

You should definitely give this a shot.

9.Coke :- gets rid of the rust:

Up next, is that hack which will let you get rid of rust and other dirty particles on your hammer, nails, screwdriver or any other metal based object. All you`ve got to do is follow the following steps:

What you need:

  • A big bottle of coke (quantity of coke really cannot be quantified here as it depends upon the object you to clean but, all we can say is that the quantity of coke should be so much that you can completely drown the object you want to clean inside the coke)
  • The object you want to clean

What you should do: Pour enough coke in a big jar or any other big sized vessel. Then drown the object inside the coke. Now, time for which the object should be kept drowned is not exactly fixed but we`ve found that keeping it drowned over night or full 24 hours if you`ve got that much time gives the best result. Then, take the object out and give it a quick wash.
