We ran a post about 10 brilliant life hacks earlier this month, and people absolutely loved it. And why wouldn’t they? These simple little tips can truly be game-changers for people, offering ridiculously simple solutions for annoying tasks. And the best part about a good life hack is the fact that you always have the same reaction when you first learn about it: Why didn’t I think of that?

Today, we’ve got 10 more great life hacks for you and as was the case with our last life hack post, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them.

DON’T MISS: How Have You Survived This Long Without These 10 Brilliant Lifehacks?

Today’s batch comes courtesy of Instructables, and it’s a great one…

Clean your keyboard

Looking for a simple way to clean between the buttons on your keyboard? A regular old Post-It note will do a better job than blowing into the keys as hard as you can, like you usually do.

Battery hack

This one actually blew my mind. The next time you’re out of AA batteries but you have some unused AAA batteries lying around, stuff the positive ends with aluminum foil. Just try to make sure the foil isn’t touching anything other than the metal contacts.

Tabletop phone stand

Some might argue that this is an even better use for sunglasses than blocking the sun.

Cookie dust

This one would make George Costanza proud. Use a fork when eating Oreos to keep all that annoying cookie dust off your fingers.

Rubber band car dock

Another brilliant one… use a rubber band in your AC vent to hold your smartphone at the perfect position for navigating.
