These days there are so many lazy life hacks it is hard to live a normal life anymore! But they do always make me smile so I have picked ten of the best life-hacks for you to enjoy. Some are super lazy, some are pure genius and some are crazier than a bag of squirrels…
Sponge Used as Replacement Car Screen Wiper
If only the sponge was the length of a normal car windscreen wiper this might well have worked! …But it isn’t so it doesn’t. You could make a killing from all these DIY disasters TV shows there are out there with people like this around.
Push Lawn Mower Attached to the Front of a Bicycle
Perfect for mowing down Zombies should the apocalypse ever happen this non-genuine makeshift machine is pure genius and should be made via mass production as soon as possible. Out of all of these DIY disasters pictures, this is the one I would most like to try.
Shopping Trolley used as a BBQ
While at first glance this might seem like a great replacement part, but you need to know the fact that all shopping trolleys are often sprayed with pure bleach to keep them clean and shiny! So eating off of this would be no different to eating from the side of your own toilet bowl. The idea is sound as a log fire, but it’s just not the best for cooking with.
Lego Used to Replace Brickwork
What is especially amazing about this is that they have used sloping, slanted Lego bricks to match the edges of the real bricks! Sure it looks incredible but only time would know how long it might well last for, but given that Lego is made from hardened plastic the non-genuine replacement bricks might well last longer than the real ones!
Hand Vanity Mirror Used as a Car Side Reverse Mirror
Using a vanity mirror as a car wing mirror is not only daft looking but also pointless because wing mirrors on cars are not just a mirror but in fact curved in a very specific way to enable you to safely see what is at the side of you, and this just won’t do that. This is one of those DIY disaster stories that no one would believe you saw if you told them about it.
Desk Fan Used as a Ceiling Fan
This is a win not only for the genius idea that it is, but being a desktop fan it also rotates meaning that no matter where you are in the room you will get a cool breeze! You might well come to see this in an episode of house moving disasters
Trolley Wheel Used as a Car Wheel
It is surprising the number of people who have been caught driving around with almost exactly the same non-genuine part. But if I saw a car like this there is no way I would get into it. With so many images of the same thing, it makes me wonder if there is just one garage out there that is doing all of them!
Barbie Dolls Used as a Chandelier
Many little girls (and some boys) have grown up with Barbie. But there has to be a cut-off age. And just what age is that? Well, when you start making this creepy looking chandler with dolls instead of crystals you should probably stop right then. It goes to show that with a little bit of DIY lifting a house in terms of persona is easy!
Shed Lock Used as a Car Door Lock
Did you know that before the 50’s most car makers didn’t have car locks! Yep, people would just leave them open. But some people used to use locks like they had their sheds and back doors, so while at first, this might seem like a daft idea back in the early ’50s this would have been a win! This might well make it into the book “more DIY disasters” and the follow on one “ultimate DIY guide” because it really is that bad. But I have been told that in Russia this is often a common sight.
Rubbish Skip Used as a Swimming Pool
No room for a swimming pool in the garden? Then why not hire one! Sure this is hardly a genuine part but boy is it an amazing idea. Far, far cheaper than any swimming pool all you need is a pool ladder, plastic sheet and a number of good skip hire firms! And for all those reasons and then some, this pure genius idea makes it number 1. You might need a skip during your own home renovation disasters, that are just around the corner. This idea isn’t the only thing you can make and do with a rubbish skip!
