Make Your Day With These 19 Genius Problem-Solving Hacks

13. Dab some translucent powder on your lips to make your lipstick last for hours.

A long night out requires a long-lasting lip. After applying liner and lipstick, pull a layer off of a tissue, and lay it across your lips. Tap the translucent powder onto your lips through the tissue — that way, you won’t apply so much that you actually wash out the color. Even after eating or drinking, you won’t have to reapply for quite some time. Trust me. Learn more here.

14. Use a squeegee to reach the exterior of your windows from inside the house without falling out.

Dirty windows = dark rooms. If you live on a second floor or higher, it’s basically impossible to clean the outside of the window… That is, unless you have a squeegee. You’ll need to buy a soft cover for the squeegee to really get the windows clean but that’s a small price to pay for natural sunlight.

Rub warm soapy water all over the windows with the squeegee, and then remove the cover to pull the squeegee across the window from top to bottom. The soap will come right off! Dry off the squeegee after every pass and only move in one direction so you aren’t pushing the dirt around. Learn more here.

Get the squeegee and soft cover from Amazon for $12.

15. Press cherry tomatoes between two tupperware lids to slice them all in one go.

Chopping vegetables can be such a chore. But it doesn’t have to be! Instead of cutting each tomato one by one, just hold them all in place while you drag the knife through all of them. And if your straight edge knife isn’t sharp enough, switch to a serrated one. A dull knife will squish the tomatoes instead of slicing right through. Learn more here.
