WIRE HANGER TO UN­ZIP DRESS

When Bo­nang Matheba tweeted that she slept in her evening gown be­cause there was no­body to un­zip her, a lot of peo­ple told her she should have used a wire hanger to un­zip her dress.

So how do you do it? In­ter­net posters say: “Pull on the bot­tom of the tri­an­gu­lar part so it be­comes a di­a­mond shape and then use it as an arm ex­ten­sion – hook the hook part into the zip­per opener and closer and just pull up or down.” Voila!

CURL­ING HAIR WITH A WA­TER BOT­TLE

Don’t have a hair curler? Then sim­ply use a plas­tic wa­ter bot­tle, ap­ply some heat, you got some se­ri­ous curls.

First spot­ted on Face­book, the tech­nique has been em­u­lated by beauty blog­gers who have shared tips on how to do it.

Cut the top off a re­cy­cled plas­tic bot­tle and cre­ate a rec­tan­gu­lar in­ci­sion that’s about the same size as the noz­zle on your hairdryer. Place a sec­tion of your hair (about 5cm in di­am­e­ter) in­side the bot­tle. Place the hairdryer noz­zle in­side the in­ci­sion and blast hair for about eight sec­onds.

PANTS UN­ZIP WHEN YOU DON’T WANT THEM TO?

Use a keyring to se­cure the zip­per to the but­ton. Sim­ply at­tach the keyring, zip up your pants, and place the keyring over the but­ton. Then, but­ton your pants like nor­mal, and boom. You’re in the clear.
