You Can Watch TikTok Hands-Free

I know so many people who enjoy watching everything TikTok has to offer. It's a way for them to pass time or to simply be entertained. However, there are some cases where watching these videos would help pass the time but it would be hard to do because your hands aren't free to swipe to the next video. A few examples of these instances could be when doing laundry, washing dishes, or simply getting ready for the day. One TikTok user, diaperbagrag, recently shared a hack on how you can watch TikTok without having to use your hands to swipe to the next video.

10 Other Uses for Hand Sanitizer

I discovered hand sanitizer's ability to be more than just a germ-killing product one morning while making coffee in the kitchen at work. While pouring myself a cup from a full pot, a small stream dribbled down the side of the pot and onto the white countertop. I wiped it up with a paper towel, but a light brown stain still remained. A tried a disinfectant wipe which helped a little, but you could still faintly see where the dribble had landed. Then I remembered having alcohol wipes at one point during the pandemic. They had been used up and not replaced for some time, but there was still a bottle of hand sanitizer sitting out. I squirted a little on the stain, wiped over it with a paper towel, and boom, the countertop looked brand new. This got my curious mind wondering if there was anything else I could use it for, so it was off to the internet to see what I could find. It turns out, thanks to its high concentration of ethanol or isopropyl alcohol, hand sanitizer can be used for all sorts of things.

Coffee Creamer is the Secret Ingredient

I love coffee. It's pretty much the ONLY thing that makes mornings worth getting up for. As Lorelei Gilmore once said, I think I was coffee in another life.

Did you know that there is MORE to do with coffee creamer though than just sticking it in coffee? It's actually a secret ingredient...
