JUST DO NOT TRY THESE AT HOME.
The Worst Lifehacks on the Internet Not every hack you come across on the web is going to change your life for the better. Here are some duds that are better off filed under #fail instead.
+Hiding emergency money in a clean lipbalm tube while on vacation.
Because we’ve never lost our lipbalms before, right? Also, that little tube isn’t going to hold enough cash to tide you over in an emergency, so…
+Using bobby pins to add lift to your ponytail.
This beauty hack tells you to stick bobby pins vertically into the bottom of your ponytail for added perkiness. What it fails to mention are the stabbing pains that result from having the weight of your hair rest on two narrow pins that are anchored on your head. FYI, this is what the ground feels like when you wear stilletoes.
+Placing a wooden spoon across a pot to keep it from boiling over.
Putting a spoon across a boiling pot will burst some of the bubbles created by the steam, but not indefinitely. If you trust this lifehack to do its job, you’ll not only end up disappointed, but you’ll also have to clean up the hot foamy froth that just spilled all over your stove top. Thanks, Internet.
