Life can suck sometimes and most of the time, you’re probably just winging it. When it comes to everyday situations, you don’t have to suffer though as there is always a life hack to help you out and make your life so much easier. Here are 6 awesome life hacks that will change your life forever and make you wonder why you didn’t come across this article earlier!
1. Bucket won’t fit in the sink?
You’ve probably come across this situation plenty of times: you’re trying to mop the bathroom floor but before you do so, you’re trying to fill your bucket with water but the bucket is just too big.
A way too overcome this might include such as using a cup to fill up the bucket but it takes too long. Or maybe you’ve tried to connect a hose from the sink to the bucket but it’s a mess and water just goes everywhere.
A great solution is by using your dustpan and putting the wide side where the tap is so that the handle hangs off the side of the sink. Make sure your bucket is beneath the handle and switch on the tap to fill up your bucket!
2. Another use for toilet paper tube?

This is probably one of the life hacks you never knew existed and it’s a pretty nifty life hack! If you’ve got plenty of wrapping paper which gets messed up and you have nothing to hold it in place then the perfect solution is your empty toilet paper tube!
