Seven incredible duct tape life hacks

I have assembled seven of my favorite life hacks for the guy who always has a roll of duct tape handy.

Hack #1 - Ugly mug

Let's face it. There are many of us who are just too ugly to stomach looking at ourselves in the mirror every morning. Imagine how much better you would feel if you saw Brad Pitt looking back at you? A pic of your favorite actor, a little duct tape, and you can wake up feeling sexy!

Hack #2 - Broken mirror?

Are you in the middle of seven years' bad luck? And can't scrape up the money to replace that mirror? Just duct tape your cell phone to the mirror and put it in selfie mode!

Hack #3 - Read both sides of a newspaper

A drop of oil and you can cut your newspaper reading time in half! Ok, maybe it's not duct tape, but what real man doesn't always have a can of WD40 handy?

Hack #4 - Cell phone mute

You feel a sneeze coming on. You know that your cell phone has a mute button somewhere, but don't have the time to find the manual and look it up. Grab a strip of duct tape, and viola! You got a mute button. (BTW, did you tell your wife that you are at a "convention"? You can also use this on the camera lens when you Facetime with her.)

Hack #5 - Screen dimmer

Those darn cell phones never seem to get that whole auto-brightness figgered out. Duct tape + old man sunglasses = easy reading!

Hack #6 - Can't figger out Word?

Let's face it. Microsoft Word is just too complicated! Two strips of duct tape and a piece of paper and you are word processing with the pros!

Hack #7 - Pill storage

Doncha just hate those cumbersome, ugly, hard-to-open pill boxes? A piece of duct tape and a wall is all you need to organize your pills!

Impressed? Look for my new book in quality hardware stores everywhere.

  1. John, LOL! But I always thought you looked like Brad Pitt anyway. You don't?
