Drinking straws are always lying around everywhere. Most people think that the only purpose of a straw is to drink a beverage. However, did you know that there is a bunch of crafty ways to use straws to improve your every day life? Here are six different ways to use drinking straws brought to you by the Crazy Russian Hacker.
The first one uses a bag of brown sugar and a straw. The bag doesn’t close, so this life hack prevents your food from going stale by sealing it. You take two thick straws, and cut a straight line down one of the straws. Now you grab the second straw, place it under the plastic bag, and wrap it tight in the plastic. Next you take the cut straw and slide it right over the wrapped straw, so it keeps the bag sealed and the straws in place. It ends up being a homemade Ziploc bag!
The second life hack uses necklaces. You can use the straw to keep your jewelry from getting tangled. You need to unclasp the necklace and thread it through the straw. Then you clasp it back to the other end, and it will prevent your necklaces from getting tangled.
The third life hack is about getting ketchup out of the bottle. In order to get ketchup out, you stick the straw all the way in the bottle with the top of the straw remaining out of it. You then shake around the straw as you shake the bottle towards the plate to let the ketchup out. It will make the ketchup come out in an easy flow.
I’d tell you the rest of these awesome straw hacks, but I don’t want to ruin the surprise! Watch below to find out!
Hopefully these lifehacks can make your life just a little bit easier. SHARE the love and pass it on!
