Hacks for Mom's mostly, also find out how to disable game ad's & end YouTube commercials!

Updated on June 9, 2014

No more pesky ads

If you enjoy playing games on your iPhone/Android, did you know that you can stop ads from ruining your fun by putting your phone on airplane mode?


Bruise be gone!

If you have a pesky bruise that is ruining your perfect summertime look, soak a cotton ball or cotton pad in vinegar and rub it on your bruise. It will quickly disappear! If it doesn't work the first time, keep trying. You could also tape the cotton ball to your leg or arm where the bruise is and let it sit overnight.


Car coming! FAST

If you happen to find yourself directly in front of a car that is not stopping and you cannot run away or jump to the side fast enough, jump up as high as you can right before the car hits you and you have greatly increased your chances of living by rolling over the hood of the vehicle. It is the technique stunt men use in Hollywood.


Want vivid dreams?

Before you go to bed drink a large glass of pure apple juice and hold on to your bed sheets! Apple juice has a chemical compound in it that makes your dreams extremely vivid!


Something in your eye?

If you have something in your eye that is driving you bonkers, fear or rub no more, fill up a bowl (large enough to fit your face) with warm water. Place your face into the bowl and open your eyes wide open under the water. Voila! Whatever was in your eye is now floating around the bottom of the bowl.


Throbbing headache?

Do you have a throbbing headache that just will not leave you be? Take a lime and slice it in half, rub it on your forehead and the throbbing pain should subside or go away completely! Good luck.


Shoes you love to small?

I know a trick to help you- put on 2 or 3 pairs of socks, cram your feet into the shoes that are to small (forget about the pain, it's for a good cause). Take a blow dryer and blow dry on high the shoes with your feet and the extra socks in them for at least 10 minutes. You will be wearing those small shoes in no time!


Pump up the volume

If your jamming out to tunes on your iPhone and the music just is not loud enough, try this- Put your phone in a bowl the shape of the bowl will amplify the music and make it louder. Kind of like am amphitheater! (just not as loud or live haha)


Sick of YouTube ads?

When you log into YouTube, change the URL from YouTube to YouTubeskip. You will not be bothered with and of those boring and time consuming ads anymore. Happy YouTubing!!


Going to the zoo? Your kids will love you for this trick~

If you are taking your family to the zoo for the day, find out what the uniforms look like at your local zoo so that you and your family can wear clothes that are the same color, that way the animals will recognize you as staff and come up to you or the glass and give you lots of attention! Just don't forget you will be attracting animals so be very aware of your surroundings and the security of each enclosure!

      Cool hacks. I specifically like the airplane mode to get rid of phone ads. However, you won't be able to receive messages and calls with that mode on so be sure to turn it off after playing or using your favorite app.
