Is there something you learned later in life that would’ve made your life so much easier if you knew it before? It happens to all of us and the best way to learn is from other people’s not knowing. Reddit user felis_disapproves helped us all out by asking What's something you did 'the hard way; for the longest time, because you didn't know there was a much easier way?" and here’s some of the best tips and tricks.
- "If you hold down the “0” (zero) button on an iPhone, it will bring up the “°” degree symbol."
- "I've been opening pistachios with my thumbs for 30 years until I saw my wife use half a shell to wrench her next one open and then my mind exploded."
- "For dusting things like baseboards, windowsills, and picture frames, the best tool is a clean paintbrush. I always used either a cloth or something made specifically for dusting, but the paintbrush is much faster and easier. I keep a cheap 2-inch paintbrush exclusively for dusting now. It also works great on cobwebs."
- "Cleaning the damn microwave. I struggled to scrub all the dried-up bits off then a friend told me to just put a small dish of water in it and turn it on for a couple of minutes. Everything wipes right out. I was such a dumba**."
- "After taking a shower, you can dry yourself off (after turning the water off, of course) while still in the shower stall to prevent the bathroom floor from being wet."
- "That you turn the deodorant to lift the hard plastic off. Learned this about 5 years ago. I'm 36 years old. I struggled needlessly for so long trying to pry that damn thing off."
