I came across this interesting read and I have to say, some of them are great ideas and ones I would never thought of! I love little ideas that can help make life much easier.

1. Silicone Cupcake Liners
These prevent that icky and sticky cup holder mess. Place a silicone cupcake or muffin liner into your cup holder and it will no longer be a hassle to clean up the gunk that gets stuck in there!

2. Remove small dents with a plunger
This simple and effective trick will make your car look as good as new!

3. Take a photo when you park
If you’re always forgetting where you parked, take a photo of the floor you parked on and it’s surroundings!

4. Tape a fake snake to the roof of your car
This will stop birds from pooping on your roof!

5. Use Toothpaste to clean your headlights!
If your headlights are looking gross, use toothpaste and a shammy cloth for a cheap, effective clean.

6. Keep a crayon for emergencies
A crayon will burn for thirty minutes if you find yourself needing warmth or light in an emergency.

7. Parking Apps
Book in a car parking spot in advance with one of the many Parking apps available these days!

Number 1 is my favourite! What is yours? Do you already do these? Let me know!

  • really beutiful


  • number one is a good idea. So much easier to clean out!


  • Number 1 is pretty good! I hate cleaning the cup holders!


  • Some brilliant little ideas here, thanks for sharing.


  • Thanks for sharing these hacks.


  • #2 is a great one for all those small dints you get in our local shopping carpark! Thanks!


  • i love tip #1. these are pretty good especially the crayon candle


  • love the cup cake wrapper for cup holders.


  • I think I’d rather bird poop than a snake – it would be sure to frighten me witless every time (even if I’d put it there myself!) :)


  • The one of the fake snake is so funny! I’m surely it’s helpful. A good idea to put it in the swimming pool too!


  • The toothpaste only works if you seal it afterwards…otherwise they just go back to how they were really quickly!


  • Thanks for sharing these hacks! Have used the plunger-yep it works! :)


  • Love tips #1 and #6, great read. Thanks


  • I love number 1. Sounds like a great idea


  • WOW Thanks so much Ellen, these are wonderful. Number 1 would be my fav, I really must try 3 though, sometimes if it was not for my hubby I would be lost. Number 4 is interesting but I might get a fright if I came across a car doing this (could possibly think it was real) lol. Number 6 is very interesting and I am wondering how this works (will have to google this one) . THANKS AGAIN FOR SHARING WITH US ALL.
