Every shortcut we get in life makes our daily routine just a little easier. After all, it's hard to discover all off life's little shortcuts by ourselves. That's why it's great to get tips from others who have discovered these little tips for modern life.
1. Did you know that you can make cake out of ice cream? Mix two cups of ice cream in any flavor with a cup and a half of self-rising flour. Mix until dough is formed and bake in a rectangle baking pan in 180 degrees until it browns. Lick to see if it's good, and believe me, it will be! Make sure the self-rising dough you pick isn't too salty.
2. Make pimples go away with the ibuprofen gel. Just cut off the head of the jelly pill, and use as acne cream. Ibuprofen is an anti-inflammatory agent and the alcohol in the liquid opens the pours of your skin so it enters more quickly. In Japan they actually use it as acne medicine in the form of an ointment.
3. Need to wash a large number of fruit quickly? Put them in the dishwasher (with no cleaning materials inside!) and put on cold wash. Be sure to give it a wash once before you do it, to get rid of remnants of soap.
4. Fun with the ol' laser pointer - Take out the lens of the laser pointer, use a headpin to attach it to your smartphone camera and voila! You have a zoom lense.
