KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) Life hacks are quick shortcuts to make every day tasks easier or more efficient. Local 8 News This Morning anchors Erin Barnett and Allie Spillyards put a few to the test.
First up, they added a teaspoon of baking soda to water while boiling eggs. It was supposed to make the shells peel easier. They didn't notice too much of a difference.
Next, they lit a piece of uncooked spaghetti to light a hard to reach candle wick. It worked just as they read.
They also slid a bobby pin onto the end of a tube of toothpaste to get every last bit out.
