5 Minute Magnet Hacks
We’re always on the lookout for life hacks. You know—those methods that make life easier with just a simple adjustment. Magnets make for the perfect life hacking tool as all you need is 5 minutes and some materials you probably already have in your home.
Let’s get to hacking!
Organize Phone Cables with Ease
Use this hack to completely declutter your workspace in minutes! Just grab your cables that keep getting tangled, a few compression springs that fit around your wires, some glue, and 22mm x 11mm Disc - Neodymium Magnets. Take the coil and twist it around the base of the cable near the connector until it fits snug around it. Next, glue your disc magnets to the back of your desk or a spot that is relatively hidden from view. Once the glue is dried you can easily organize your cables by magnetizing the cord with the compression spring on it to the magnet!
Magnet Hooks in Your Closet
This one is a simple but effective way to add more storage space to your closet! All you have to do is attach some 12 Pound Hooks - Neodymium Magnets using glue to the inside of your closet. Once the glue is dried and the hook is secure, they’re ready to use to hang whatever you need — from extra storage organizers to winter jackets!
Keep Chip Bags Sealed
We’ve all accidentally let a perfectly good bag of chips go stale by not closing the bag securely. Luckily, we have an easy solution for that! This hack requires almost no work, all you need is 2 of our 7mm x 1mm Disc - Neodymium Magnets. Simply put one magnet on the front of the folded part of the bag and the other on the back at the same spot. The two magnets should be pulling the back and front of the bag together. Happy snacking!
Pick up Screws and Other Small Items Easily
This hack will help you collect all the small screws, bobby pins, and paperclips that may be scattered at your workplace desk or vanity. Take a small plastic container and glue your 16mm x 2mm Disc - Neodymium Magnet to the bottom of the outside of the container. Now you can just wave the open container over the fallen items and the magnetic force will collect them with ease.
