5 Ink and toner. If you print things even occasionally, you groan every time you get one of those replace ink messages on your computer screen. However, replacing the cartridge right away isn’t the most effective solution. Frequently these messages pop up when your ink has just reached a certain low level but there is still some left. With ink cartridges simply take out the cartridge and use unbent paperclip to pop the reset button on the cartridge then continue printing until you’re printing gets light or totally non-existent. Only then will you have to replace the cartridge. With larger toner cartridges take them out and shake them up then put them back in often you can get dozens more pages out of a cartridge by doing this.
4. Leftover pizza. Leftover pizza is good in so many ways. Some people like getting it cold while others prefer to reheat it but if you’re using a microwave or even a traditional oven. You may not be getting the best tastiest flavor and texture from yesterday’s pizza so what’s the best way to reheat it? Fold your pizza slices up and put them in a waffle iron. This keeps the crust crispy and even remounts the cheese plus you get a cool little grid shape on your pizza.
You can even fill the little squares with that extra sauce or parmesan cheese you get from the pizza place.
#3. Apples. An apple a day is supposed to keep the doctor away or if so the saying goes. I don’t know about that but a whole apple a day will leave more room in your trash or recycling bin that’s why you got to eat it all, that’s right you can eat the whole apple, including the core. The whole idea of the core being inedible is just a myth.
Sure, apple seeds do release cyanide when digested but unless you finally chew and eat about 200 apple seeds or about 200 apple cores you won’t receive a fatal dose and you shouldn’t peel apples either as the skin contains vitamins. The best way to consume your apple is to rinse it thoroughly. Start from the bottom and eat the whole thing.
#2. Liquid Soap. If you have to keep buying liquid soap frequently, you may feel like you are washing a lot of money down the drain. Fortunately, there’s an easy way to save money and still get your hands clean. Wrap a rubber band around the neck of the pump. This lets it go down partway but not all the way. So, you get a smaller amount of soap with each pump. Don’t worry your hands will get just as clean and you won’t have to buy soap as often. You can even stretch your soap further by adding water when the pump bottle starts to run low. You will be able to stretch the bubbles a lot farther before you have to buy another refill.
#1. Pistachios. Pistachios are healthy nuts and they have pretty fun commercials too but sometimes getting them open is no fun. Especially when you’re left with the neglected ones that you can’t get the shell off. Thankfully there’s an easy for this that might save you from going nuts.
Just take another pistachio shell and insert it into the crack. You should be able to fit it into most small slits with a bit of pressure and this will allow you to easily push apart the two sides of the shell. This works because the shells are very strong.
This will prevent those yummy pistachio nuts from hibernating indefinitely.
