Top 10 Everyday Life Hacks That Take 10 Seconds or Less  June 12, 2015 – 12:03 pm

Top 10 Everyday Life Hacks That Take 10 Seconds or LessSometimes, you can do something the fast way, or you can do it the right way. Other times, those two things are one and the same. Here are 10 everyday tasks that you can do in 10 seconds or less.

10. Tie an Emergency Tie Knot

Ever get to the point where you’re already 5 minutes late, but haven’t even tied your tie yet? With this method, you can tie your tie in five seconds flat, meaning you can get out the door faster. It’ll take a bit of practice to learn—and you may have to adapt it to fit your preferred type of knot—but once you get it down, you’ll feel like a well-dressed version of The Flash.

9. Cure Your Hiccups

Top 10 Everyday Life Hacks That Take 10 Seconds or LessYou’ve probably heard a million hiccup cures over the years, but when our own Adam Dachis got hiccups that lasted over 36 hours, the one remedy he—and many others—found worked best was just a quick shot of applce cider vinegar. It only takes a few seconds, and works shockingly well.

8. Deseed a Pomegranate the Easy Way

I think the deliciousness of food is directly proportional to how much work it takes to eat. Case in point: pomegranates. They’re delicious, but you have to work forever to get all those little seeds out into a bowl to eat it, right? Wrong! All you need is a wooden spoon and a little instruction. If you’re of a plum fan, though, we’ve got tricks for that too.

7. Tie Your Shoes Faster with the Ian Knot

Tying your shoes isn’t exactly a long, drawn-out process, but every second counts—especially when you’re in a rush. The Ian Knot is a super-speedy way of tying your shoes, and while it takes a few minutes to learn, it’s pretty easy. Check out the video above to see it in action, and while you’re at it, check out this method for untying double-knotted shoes with ease.

Top 10 Everyday Life Hacks That Take 10 Seconds or Less6. Open a Bottle of Wine (Without Struggling with the Foil)

Most wine bottles come with a foil wrapper on top that, often, is a task to get off. Many of you wine experts may already know this, but for the rest: don’t try to unwrap the foil. Just grab it, twist, and pull—you’ll be enjoying your wine in no time

5. Peel an Entire Head of Garlic

Peeling garlic is messy and sometimes difficult, particularly if you have a lot of cloves. Why go one by one when you could stick them all in a bowl, shake it up, and be done in less than 10 seconds? It sounds crazy, but it works—check out the video above for proof.
