"Hack." It's a term that has, ironically, become hackneyed. Overused, devoid of all meaning and is, more often than not, outright bananas.
From the ubiquity of "life hacks" to ones hooked around beauty, creativity or even your own psychology, the word has become an internet staple - fuelling countless pages of the internet, for no real purpose other than to steal a few clicks.
Among a list for "40 Life Hacks That Will Change Your Life", an actual adult human recommends you place your hard earned cash in a sanitary bag ("no one will steal it!"), use your shoe as a cupholder and trumpets toilet roll cardboard as both a seed pot and iPhone speaker.
And yet, should you be brave enough to sieve through the abject lunacy, sometimes therein lies gold.
Granted, the following style tips probably won't "CHANGE YOUR LIFE", yet they might one day prove useful. Plus you'll never look at vodka, or your forearm, the same way again.
Regrow shrunken clothes with hot water and hair conditioner
Defluff your clothing with a fistful of Sellotape
Figure out whether trousers will fit without trying them on
Pack your blazer inside out
Travelling with a suit used to require ninja skills to evade creasing, but now all you need do is fold appropriately while inside out. Take that, extortionate hotel dry cleaners.
Use a straw to retrieve your hoody's drawstring
Save space by filing your clothes
Freeze clean your denim
Cure wet, stinky trainers with newspaper
Air dry your socks
Ever wondered why your socks look like Emmental? It's because you insist on tumble drying them (plus your disastrous toenails that resemble jagged Corn Flakes, but mostly the tumble drying). They don't take long to dry naturally, and will live a longer life.
Stuck zip? Work it out with a pencil
De-bobble your jumper with a razor
Remove stains with hand sanitiser
Don't wash your clothes after every use
Remove odours with vodka
No, we seriously haven't been drinking. Somehow, pouring vodka into a spray bottle, applying it to musty clothes and allowing to dry will leave no smell whatsoever. Not even vodka.
