One of the most frustrating things in life is when you drop something very small and then you’re unable to find it. How often have you found yourself on your hands and knees, angrily looking for a tiny screw, earring or piercing? There is a clever life hack solution to this problem. Get your vacuum cleaner out, wrap an old stocking around the hole of your vacuum’s pole, and then use that to suck in the tiny item safely. The item will be sucked to the stocking, but it will safely remain there instead of ending up inside of the vacuum cleaner.
