Top 10 "Life Hacks" That Won't Actually Make Your Life Better

Misfire
There are a lot of hacks that claim to make life easier for us, but not all of them work. Here is a list of popular life hacks that don't actually make your life better.

The Top Ten

1 The toilet paper roll smartphone speaker

Cardboard tubes don't actually make the sound louder. If anything, they can muffle the sound. - Misfire

Just buy a Bluetooth speaker! - oneshot

I put mine in drawer and 'seems' make it louder... - Murphypaw

Ummm. Okay? Lol - Arcxia

2 Putting a wooden spoon on your pot will stop it from boiling over

Lol. Why though. Why would something like that work. - Powell

Usually, if you're not paying attention to the boiling pot, the pot will boil over. But what if you use this life hack? It'll still boil over. - Misfire

3 The nail and hammer wine opener

Unless you have multiple nails in the cork, it just won't work. Just buy yourself a normal bottle opener! - Misfire

4 Use ketchup bottles to pour pancake batter for the perfect pancakes

Aside from the fact that it takes a lot of patience to get the batter into the bottle and that it can be messy, and that it takes a death grip to squeeze the batter out (unless the bottle has a wide opening), it isn't really worth risking to have a trace amount of ketchup in your pancakes. - Misfire

This is probably the most disgusting idea ever!

5 Unlocking a locked car door with a tennis ball

Another one that makes no sense to think it would work. - Powell

It'll never work. It's been disproved by internet strangers and even the Mythbusters themselves. - Misfire

6 Applying toothpaste on pimple

It might soothe minor burns, but since most toothpastes contain menthol, using this hack could irritate or dry out your skin. By using toothpaste on a zit, you might get even more as a result. - Misfire

This one works for me - sadical

7 Making grilled cheese in toaster

This one is good advice if you have a good toaster, a microwave toaster but terrible if you have a regular toaster - germshep24

It might look like a brilliant hack, but the bread might pop out and the cheese could get all over the place. - Misfire

8 Holding cherry tomatoes between two tupperware lids

Tomato juice goes everywhere, and you'll just end up with uneven cuts. - Misfire

9 Using sunglasses as cell phone stand

This hack would only work on grippy surfaces. - Misfire

10 Microwaving leftover pizza with a glass of water will make it crispier

The pizza will be as soggy as its gets whether you add the water or not - Misfire

The Contenders

11 Anything troom troom shows

Yes! Everything made by Troom Troom is useless garbage. I've never watched their channel, but by looking at the thumbnails, I think to myself, "Geez, whatever happened to YouTube? " - Target

12 Turn off your computer

Because you are a miserable loser.

13 Using an iron to grill a sandwich
