As a young working professional who lives alone, there’s nothing I love more than home hacks that simplify tough tasks.

Whether it’s painting hacks to ease my home renovations or a genius way to turn a cup into a speaker, I am always incorporating tips and tricks I find online or hear from friends into my everyday routine.

But no matter how many hacks I read about or try for myself, I am always shocked by how innovative people can be with their household items. I would never think to use my can opener to open a tough package, or sharpen a pair of dull scissors with sandpaper, but now that I’ve tried these hacks at home, I can’t imagine living without them!

Whether you’re cleaning up in the kitchen or doing an art project with your kids, these six household hacks are guaranteed to make your life easier. Check out the tricks below, and watch the video to see how they’re done!
