Life-Hacks For Grown-Ups ♥

Remember when you first discovered that duct tape was the greatest pet hair remover of all time? 
Or when you found out a little clear nail varnish would stop the ladder in your tights in its scruffy little tracks?

There's one everyday household object that has taken life hacks to new heights; your computer. 
Nowadays the internet is teeming with websites dedicated to making your life easier by providing simple, efficient solutions that let you get on with the important things.
Here's a list of our favourites:

Give Me Tap
