User @girlandherdoggos showed how she puts her shirt on without getting deodorant on it:

She has her T-shirt inside out with the tag facing away from her body so any deodorant that rubs off while she is putting on her shirt goes on the inside instead of the outside.

When it comes to soda, user @frankdoesit has a hack for preventing fizz explosions:

He pushes down on the sides of the can to help the fizz settle, and then when the can is opened, it shouldn't explode.

@dr.staci.t shared a hack she uses to get her stretched-out, spiral hair ties to shrink:

The hair ties are plastic, so if you heat them up with a blow dryer, they should revert back to their original size.

They use a technique where you fold the hood over the shirt part of the hoodie so it doesn't come unfolded.

According to @hannahnewton29, if you shake your salt and pepper shakers up and down, it isn't the best way:

She shows her hack where you rub the bottom of the shaker in a circular motion to get more seasoning to come out.

And if folding a fitted sheet is a nightmare for you, @byronbydesign shared her simple way of doing it:

And, lastly, this mom — user @thoroughlybeautiful — shared her hack for folding dirty diapers:


Reply to @chelseytaormina Easy up hack slowly for those who asked! #momhack #momhacks #momtips #lifehack

You pull a layer from the front, peel it back, and it allows you to easily fold the diaper up.
