Make Your Day With These 19 Genius Problem-Solving Hacks

How to easily open a jar, clean your white shoes, and keep your lipstick on for hours.

1. Wear rubber gloves when opening a jar to get a better grip on the lid.


This is so simple, it’s almost stupid. Pull the top off with duct tape? Nah. Smack the jar on the counter? Absolutely not. Wrap a rubber band around the top? Unnecessary! Just pull on your pair of household gloves and that sucker will be open in no time. They are literally designed so you can hold onto dishes while washing them in soapy water, so you’ll definitely have enough traction to open the bastard. Learn more here.

2. Rub vaseline on your inner thighs to stop them from chafing during those hot summer days.

You can’t wear pants cuz it’s hot AF, but thigh chafing is every thick-thighed human’s worst nightmare. Runners use vaseline to lubricate their legs to keep them from getting irritated, so you know it works. You could also try baby powder if you don’t like the slick feeling. Learn more here.

3. Wrap duct tape around your clippers to keep your nails from flying across the room.

Literally nothing grosser than finding a big nail shard on your floor. Just let the duct tape hang out a little so the sticky part catches the clippings. Pull the tape off when you’re done and toss it. Learn more here.
