Assorted Life TIps and Tricks Anonymous 62212

Did you find in your life any tips to make simple things easier or better? Post them here.

Here are some I found:
>if your gas stove turns off when you release the dial, try pushing the dial very hard for a second or two and releasing it as opposed to holding it down for a long time
>if you use Microsoft Edge, you can set every site to dark mode by default, just go to Edge://flags and enable "Force Dark Mode for Web Contents".
>if the paint on your furniture is chipped or tarnished you can retouch it with acrylic paint, it's not too expensive and dries quickly. Put wood glue over it when you're done so it doesn't come off

My tip is, always weight your ingredients when you're going to cook or bake something. Don't trust arbitrary measures like "cup" or "tablespoon".

This sucks because most recipes are in cups, and when you try to convert them manually several sites give different numbers. Why can't people be civilized and go by weight.

Alcohol swabs can get rid of most stains. But don't use them on clothes, it may ruin the colours. More useful for removing stubborn stains on furniture and walls, etc.

Don't take advice from people who can't cook

Oh yeah and cleaning wipes clean almost everything out of anything, if you get oil paint on your clothes clean it before it dries with cleaning wipes or baby wipes.
And if you want to remove rust from something soak it in citric acid, it's like magic

Get you some new sheets, queen. And one of those standing bed trays so you can eat your sushi with grace.

oxyclean. its the only shit that actually fucking works on clothes/linen/shoes.

for everything else i mostly use cheap white vinegar. also i dont use dish soap and i noticed my dish sponge never gets smelly anymore. pour boiling water on your sponge once a week.

Wear a gigantic muffin wrapper around your neck.
If you're going to act like a clown you may as well look like one.

This is a pretty good way to go. If you have a smartphone and a laptop you already have a lot. I have 4 changes of outfit, 1 pair of shoes, 1 set of cutlery and 1 cup, bowl and plate. I use 1 shower gel and 1 moisturizer and 1 safety razor I can keep buying blade sets for. My furniture is basic as fuck. sofa, coffee table, bed.

Not having a lot of shit is quite freeing in that the upkeep is so quick and easy. I can do all of my laundry including my bed linen in 1 wash and vaccuming/dusting takes 30 minutes tops. But dont think it's like one of those high concept minimalist setups with the wooden decking and zen pictures everywhere. My flat basically looks like a really clean version of auschwitz. Love the no dust though.
