One of the best hacks I ever picked up was to roll my clothes while packing a suitcase, instead of folding them. The space-saving hack is also a real lifesaver when traveling long distances; but all aren't created equal. There are some life hacks that don't work, according to the users on Reddit. In fact, some are downright hogwash. Save yourself time and energy and just take their word for it (although one Redditor says that my favorite suitcase-packing hack is a load of bull — I beg to differ, friend!).
Hacks are usually quick and cheap do-it-yourself solutions to common, everyday problems. For instance, I keep dog food in a cereal container because it's easier to work with than the monstrous bag it comes in. To me, this hack seems like a no-brainer; but others might leave you scratching your head. Without giving away any spoilers, they involve things like cucumbers peels, spoons, and lemon on and around your face. (Why, why, why?)
It's tempting to try crazy hacks, because there's always that little voice in the back of your mind asking, "What if this actually works?" I'm all for trying new things, but here are 14 hacks you might want to rethink.
