23 Simple Lifehacks For Your Everyday Problems

Maariyah Qazi

I come across a lot of hacks every day. Sometimes the hacks are repetitive, but it's my favorite when I stumble across a bunch of hacks I've never seen before. It's especially exciting if those hacks are actually useful for solving everyday problems!

Some of these solutions are ones you've been searching for, usually for a while. Others might even solve problems you didn't know you had. Regardless of which it is, they're simple, easy, and definitely helpful!

Pour a bit of apple cider vinegar into a mason jar and cover it with plastic wrap. Poke a few holes in it so the fruit flies can get in, but they won't actually be able to get out! They'll be attracted to the vinegar, but can't escape!
