Life Hack: The Electric Toothbrush Water Drip Wrap

Life Hack: The Electric Toothbrush Water Drip Wrap

Sometimes I wonder if the whole reason I started this blog was to have a purpose to share with the world what I think is probably the best life hack ever invented. Admittedly, I hear my own exaggerated tone to this statement. But I emphatically maintain that for the niche audience of electric toothbrush users out there, this life hack is truly revolutionary.

While I am not a complete neat freak, I found this phenomenon pretty gross. But as gross as it is, I also didn’t like the idea of having to clean the toothbrush charging base every few nights. There are already enough chores on my to-do list every day. I thought to myself, “There has to be an efficient and effective way to solve this annoying life problem” After-all, isn’t that the gold-standard for what makes a winning life hack?!

Cleaning Solutions That Really Work!

Cleaning Solutions That Really Work!

Can I make a confession? As much as I love having things clean, I don’t love the task of cleaning. My motivation is the end result. That is why I look for methods that are quick, easy and most of all: effective.

Over the years I have tried and tested the following cleaning methods and found they have worked with surprising success.

Boiling hot water for sugar: There is nothing worse than burnt sugar on pots and pans. I made the mistake once of not using protective aluminum foil when cooking something, and I paid the price. Luckily, the internet came to my rescue and provided this tip that really does work. Check out the video I made to demonstrate. Never under estimate the power of really hot water. Just use caution not to burn yourself.

WD-40 for soap scum: I don’t remember where I read this tip, but unbelievably, it does work. Our master bath shower has a challenge with really bad soap scum. Probably because we use a bar soap that doesn’t have a lot of sulfur or other chemicals. It’s really just soap. What a concept!
