Lifehack: 5 surprising ways to use a bobby pin at home

To loosen the end of a tape

Do you find it annoying when the end of a roll of adhesive tape pops back all the time and sticks to the roll? If you want to avoid having to pry the tape off again and again, stick a bobby pin on the end once you get hold of it. You will immediately find the beginning of the tape this way.

To empty tubes

Here’s a handy trick for an almost empty tube of toothpaste or cream. Roll up the top of the tube and secure with a pin. The remaining contents are pushed in the tube towards the cap, and you can easily use up the leftovers.

When driving a nail

A hairpin even comes in handy when doing odd jobs. Place a bobby pin around a nail to hold it in place while you hammer. This way, you won’t hit the nail crooked, and you reduce the chance that your thumb will accidentally end up under the hammer.
