1. Non-Slip Hangers

2. Easy Underwear Storage

Fold your pairs of underwear one on top of another as shown in the video. Neatly place the folded pairs in a clean baby wipe dispenser, put the lid back on, and you can pull out a new pair of fresh underwear every morning!
3. Sock Drawer Organizer
- hot glue gun
3.1 Cut 3 pieces of felt into even rectangular pieces. Use a hot glue gun to glue the pieces of felt on top of each other, first with 2 vertical lines of hot glue, then with 3. Let the glue dry and cut the stacked felt sheets into 3 even strips.
3.2 Glue the 3 strips of felt together with 2 vertical lines of glue.
3.3 Let the hot glue dry and gently pull the 2 edges of felt apart to open up your new sock drawer organizer. The openings in the felt should form a honeycomb pattern, and 1 pair of socks should fit perfectly into each opening.
4. Folding Hack For Jeans
- pair of jeans
4.1 Fold your pair of jeans in half lengthwise.
4.2 Flip 1 leg up at a 90° angle and roll up the rest of the jeans, starting from the waistband.
