If you’re having problems getting your sink to drain, go old school on it.
Remember grade 3 science class when Mrs. Bloomsfield showed you what happens when you mix baking soda and vinegar? Now it’s time to put what you learned to good use. Grab 1/2 cup of baking soda and toss it down the drain followed by a 1/2 cup of distilled vinegar. Now sit, and after about 30 minutes of bubbling, turn on the tap, flushing it with hot water. (Drops the mic) Drain hacked.

If a magnet can stick to any tool in your tool box, I have sad news my friend…. it’s going to rust.
But wait! There is a cheap and easy solution to keep your tools safe.
The answer is silica gel packets…you know, those white packs you find in almost everything from
packs of beef jerky to store bought electronics. They are designed to suck the moisture out of the
air so next time, instead of letting them hit the trash, throw a few packs in with your tool box to
keep the moisture out. They also work great for collector Hockey cards, comics and important paperwork.
