Life hacks are saviours for everyone of us! But, that won’t be your thought if you end up using the wrong or mythical life hacks. Well, to make sure that you’re using the right one, we tried 14 most popular life hacks! You can see the results yourself!
1. To cut all of your cherry tomatoes in half at once, put them between two flat plates and slice through the gap with a sharp knife.
Result: Cutting tomatoes using this hack is is very time taking and hectic. We only managed to slice a few and then had to resort to doing it the old-fashioned way. This life hack might work if you use a very sharp knife. Still, you won’t be able to cut it in two halves.
Conclusion: It’s a useless hack.
2. To make sure your milk doesn’t overboil, put a wooden spoon on top of the saucepan.
Result: The milk still overboiled, and the wooden spoon did literally nothing to prevent it. This life hack is completely useless.
Conclusion: Not at all helpful.
3. A quick and easy way of making delicious cupcakes is to put the ingredients in a mug and place it in the microwave.
To prepare the cake, we took all the ingredients (1 egg and mixed it with small amounts of flour, sugar, and cocoa). Then we added a little water, some baking powder, and a pinch of salt.
Result: Our dish did had an acquired taste. The cupcake turned out a little rubbery, tasting more like a pancake. But, most likely, it depends on the quality of the ingredients you use.
Conclusion: It works, but the results may not be satisfactory for everyone.
