We all know how gross and dirty dry-erase boards can get. Unfortunately, the erasers intended for whiteboards don’t usually work very well, and when they do, they have a pretty short life span. Well, this is a problem you no longer have to worry about. I got the perfect solution for you! All you need is an old sock. Replacing erasers with socks will change your life. This hack will save you time and money on dry board erasers that don’t last long. Not only is it a much more efficient method of cleaning, but you can throw it in the washing machine afterward and reuse it again and again.

Whenever we get a bump or bruise, our first reaction is to put ice on it; it will cool off the injury and help reduce swellings. However, applying ice directly on a bruise can cause more harm than good. The last thing you want is an ice burn or frostbite.

Beverage Cozies

Imagine leaving the house on a cold winter day with a nice hot coffee to keep you warm. The only problem is, the beverage can get so hot that it burns your hands. Sure, you can look for coffee cozies, but they are usually big and bulky. Plus, wouldn’t it be more fun to customize your own? Store safety goggles or glasses in a sock in the tool shed. Hang up the sock and keep the glasses in the sock when not in use to keep your work space organized and keep any dust or residue off glasses.
