You don't even have to buy ice packs, just throw a wet hand towel in the freezer and you're all set.

*can be used for humans or pregnant cats

This is a great lifehack. Can you use it for dogs, too?

Sadly no, it's got terrible consequences for dogs. Standby for results on elephants.

I make my own ice packs.
1 part alcohol, 2 parts water in a zip-lock freezer bag. 
They stay flexible so they can be moulded around an ankle, knee, or trunk.

On a related note.... if you need a nice hot pack, you can throw some dry, uncooked rice into a sock, tie up the open end of the sock, and throw it in the microwave for a few minutes. Makes a great hot pack!

This is a good lifehack!

Also, you can open the sock later and put the rice in a pot or rice cooker and eat it!

... with the aforementioned alcohol and water mixture to wash it down.

Lifehack 30,

After you finish eating, don't waste the leftovers. Save it in an airlock container to eat later!

If you need multi-lingual Optical Character Recognition software, just use Google Translate. Take a picture or screen shot,  highlight the text you want, and then copy it from the input field. 

It is great for extracting addresses from business cards, or from websites with text embedded into images.

If you download the language pack, then it will do real time translations as well: just point your camera at whatever you want translated, and it will do it on the fly. No need to actually take the picture. Totally blew the minds of some of my school's older faculty.  :smiley:

Just washed your car and trying to dry it to avoid streaks and water marks on the car's body?

Use the windscreen squeegee, not only does it give you streak free windows, but it works quickly and
effectively for getting the water off your car without spots or streaks.

Raining? Not that cold? No rain boots? "Frugal"?

Flip flops.

LifeHack or LifeWack? You decide.

Careful; they slip on smooth granite and stick in muck.

Life lesson: learned.

I might be straying from 아재 territory into the 할비, but could I suggest this cheap, practical footwear.

I saw a few ladies wearing tall rubber boots with short skirts. They are going to get ring-arround-the-legs!

90% of the time I see them worn, there's no rain in sight. I understand fashion knows no weather, but is it really worth the blisters?

Lifehack 28

If you don't have a mirror, you can use your phone's front camera to take a look at yourself.

Lifehack 29

Wear headphones with cables tucked under your clothes to avoid someone's bag catching the cable and yanking your head.

This is a legitimate life hack! But be careful not to put your paperclip or pin box on your TV or hard drive. That can cause a big problem!

Not an issue for modern (flat panel) TVs or SSDs.
