You’re getting ready to leave the house in a couple of minutes but you can’t get your bracelet on. Minor everyday problems can really test your patience, but thankfully there are people out there who are constantly thinking up solutions to them. Here are 14 examples that might just help to make your day go a bit easier…
1. Ink stains
If your pen leaks and leaves an ugly stain on your favorite shirt, apply some hair spray or hand sanitizer and wait 10 minutes. Goodbye stain!
