15 Awesome Summer Hacks That Will Take Your Summer To The Next Level
Who is excited for Summer? As the first day of Summer has officially begun, we thought what better way to kick this season off than with some good old fashion SUMMER HACKS. We gathered some awesome tips, tricks and hacks that will surely help you have a great Summer.
Grill Food Before Anyone Arrives
At some point in a BBQ, guests begin to hover around the grill, salivating, with beers in hand. This is when the pressure mounts, and you rush to get all the burgers or steaks done. Why not just start earlier? Grill meats up to four hours before you want to serve them to just under where you want them. So if guests all want their burgers medium, take the patties off the grill at medium rare, let them sit at room temperature, and toss them on to finish them off when everyone is ready to eat.
Make The Grill Stick-Proof.
To make sure your food doesn’t stick to your grill, rub half an onion on the grates.
The Only Grill Cleaning Hack You’ll Ever Need
Everything starts with a clean grill, and there’s nothing more frustrating than realizing you forgot to clean the grill with a yard full of hungry guests. Next time, use this one simple hack to clean your grill as soon as food comes off, and you’ll never face dirty grates again. While the grill is still warm, ball up some aluminum foil (chances are you have some leftover from cooking), and use a pair of tongs to vigorously scrub the grates clean. Instant clean – no special equipment required.
Stock Up on Mason Jars
Mason jars are riding a (seemingly endless) wave of popularity and utility, thanks to an abundance of accessories that make them useful for just about everything. They make for inexpensive yet sturdy drinking glasses, condiment dispensers, utensil holders, candle holders, and more. They’re especially ideal for corralling grill tools and utensils around the grill, as plastic would easily melt
Fix Flip Flops:
Use bread tags to keep flip flops from coming apart Freeze ice cubes of aloe vera and when you have a sun burn you can use a frozen ice cube to rub the coolness on your burn Keep you hands clean while eating a Popsicle, use a cupcake lining Turn old Jeans into awesome new pair of shorts.
Use your ketchup or BBQ squeeze bottle to write on the bottom of the buns. If someone wants a well done burger, write well on the bottom and so on and so forth so the griller knows how many of each they need to cook, then match it with the correct bun (here is a pic of the squeeze bottle too).
Use the muffin tin as an awesome condiment organizer for those perfect summer bbq get together.
Sticky Finger Free:
Use cupcake lining as a way to protect those fingers of your from getting all sticky.
Create a Beach Safe:
You can make a handy little safe with an empty lotion bottle and keep your possessions safe while you are out and about at the pool or the beach. Just empty the bottle and wash it out well. Use bottles that have removable tops (most are large enough for you to keep cash, keys, and even a cell phone in them). Then just throw your stuff in your lotion bottle and stick it in your bag. Not only will it help to hide away your valuables, it makes it much easier to keep up with your cash and keys when they are neatly stored together.
Keep Your Steering Wheel Cool:
Actually, this little trick won’t really keep the steering wheel cool but it will help you to prevent burning your hands when your car has been in the hot sun. Turn the steering wheel as far as you can when you get out of the car. That way, when you get back in, you’re not needing to actually touch the part of the steering wheel that has been in the blazing sunlight. You can just turn it back quickly (to avoid initial burning) and then drive on without worries of singeing off your fingerprints.
How To Keep Sand Off Your Blanket:
Easily Remove Sand:
Baby powder is quite possibly the best thing that ever happened to adults. Honestly. If you are heading to the beach, take along some baby powder. Believe it or not, if you sprinkle your sand covered feet with baby powder when you’re ready to leave, the sand will literally fall off. Instead of tracking up your car and worse, your carpeting at home, with sand, you can just remove it easily with the baby powder. It works and it works really well. Plus, baby powder is much cheaper than shampooing carpets to get that sand out.
