「夏日大作戰!十個實用生活小技巧」- Ten Life Hacks You Need To Know For Summer!


框選或點兩下字幕可以直接查字典喔!

The next time you eat a giant hamburger, don't do it like this. The bottoms get soggy and fall apart. Instead, try turning your sandwich upside down. The tops are nearly twice as thick as the bottoms, and a lot more durable. So be smart, and eat your hamburgers upside down.
下次你吃巨無霸漢堡的時候,別像這樣吃。底部麵包會變得濕軟且裂開。換個方式替代,試著把漢堡上下顛倒著放。上面的麵包幾乎是底部的兩倍厚,也更堅固得多。所以當個聰明人,上下顛倒吃你的漢堡。

Have you ever noticed that when you put a straw in a can of soda, it doesn't want to stay? Try bending the tab of the can over the hole and slide your straw down through the tab. No more floating straws because, now, it's held in place.
你曾注意過當你把吸管放進一罐汽水,它並不會想要乖乖待著嗎?試著將汽水罐的拉環拉彎到洞口上,並把吸管往下滑穿過拉環。再也不會有漂浮吸管了,因為現在它乖乖就位了。

Grab yourself a mango and try this little trick. Carefully cut off the two sides of the fruit, and hold one piece in your hand. You can gently cut a few lines vertically and a few more across until the pattern resembles a checkerboard.
幫自己拿顆芒果,試試這個小技巧。小心地切下芒果的兩邊,在手上握著其中一片。你可以輕輕地垂直切劃幾條線,然後再幾條交叉的線,直到切痕變得像塊棋盤。

Now take it with both hands and gently push from the back. You'll see bite-sized pieces pop right up. You can use a spoon to scrape them into a bowl, or just eat them right off the peel. It's fast, easy, and they won't get stuck in your teeth.
現在雙手拿著它,輕輕地從背後推。你會看到一口大小的果肉塊直接蹦出來。你可以用湯匙把它們刮進碗裡,或就直接從果皮挖下來吃。這既快速又簡單,且它們也不會卡在你的牙縫。

If you've got ants and you're looking for a natural form of pest control, try measuring out a cup of popcorn kernels, put them in a blender on high speed for about 30 seconds, and you'll end up with a batch of fresh, homemade cornmeal. Just make a few piles around the ant trails and within a few days, your ant problems will literally disappear.
如果你有螞蟻問題,且你在找一個天然的防蟲方法,試著量出一杯的爆米花玉米粒,把它們放在果汁機裡高速打大約三十秒,你最後會得到一批新鮮的自製玉米粉。只要在螞蟻經過的路徑附近堆個幾堆,幾天內,你的螞蟻問題會確實消失。

The next time you're at a party and someone has bags of chips lying around, impress your friends by making them into custom snack bowls. You can fold the top edge inside the bag first, then begin rolling the bottom corners up into the base of the bag, pushing the chips up as you go. You'll end up with a custom snack bowl, with chips overflowing.
下一次你在派對上,某人身邊擺著一包包的洋芋片時,把它們做成客製的零食碗來讓你的朋友們驚艷一下。首先你可以把頂端的邊緣往袋子內部折,接著開始把底部的角落往袋子的基底捲,邊捲邊將洋芋片向上推。你最後會得到客製的點心碗,還有滿出來的洋芋片。

It's the season for fruit flies. So before they take over your kitchen, slice a few pieces of banana and mix them with some of your leftover mango peels. Find yourself a couple of small containers and add the fruit. Now just stretch a piece of plastic wrap over the top, and use something like the tip of a chopstick to poke a small hole in the center that's just bigger than the fly. Now you can set it and forget it.
現在是果蠅的季節。所以在它們佔領你的廚房之前,切下幾片香蕉,和一些你剩下的芒果皮混在一起。替自己找幾個小容器,然後放入水果。現在只要拉開一片保鮮膜蓋過頂部,使用像是筷子頭的東西在中間戳出幾個只比果蠅還大一些的小洞。現在你可以放著然後忘記它。

Within a few minutes, the flies will be checking things out. And once one goes in, you can be sure his friends will follow. Within a couple of days, they'll all be having a rocking fruit party. And now you can simply take the lid of the container and press it on, sealing them inside. Now you are the lord of the flies.
在幾分鐘內,果蠅會來查看一下。當一隻進去了,你就能確信它的朋友會跟上。在幾天內,他們全都會來一場搖滾水果派對。現在你可以輕鬆地拿起容器蓋子然後蓋上,把它們封在裡頭。現在你就是果蠅之神。

Summer means popsicles, and popsicles mean your kids are going to get sticky fingers. Grab a small paper cup, and carefully poke a hole in the bottom about the size of a popsicle stick. Now when you push a popsicle inside, you've got an instant drip catcher and no more sticky fingers. By the way, this works great with cupcake liners as well!
夏天代表冰棒,冰棒就代表你的孩子們會有黏答答的手指。拿一個小紙杯,小心地在底部戳開一個大約冰棒棍子大小的洞。現在當你把冰棒推到裡面,你就有了一個即刻融冰捕手,再也沒有黏答答手指了。順道一提,這個拿杯子蛋糕紙杯來用也很有效!

You've probably been to a BBQ where the condiments take up half the table, and the lineups for using them take forever. Solve the problem with a muffin pan. This way your condiments are easy to access and your lines will move along quickly. You'll also dramatically increase your table space and cut down the things to clean up afterward.
你也許去過一場調味料佔去桌子一大半的烤肉場合,等著使用調味料的隊伍花上好長時間。用瑪芬蛋糕烤盤解決這問題。這麼一來你的調味料就很容易取得,你的隊伍也會快速移動。你同樣也能明顯地增加桌子的空間,並減少之後要清理的東西。

When you are at the beach, reduce the chances of things getting stolen by making a covert container. Just take your old shampoo bottle and twist the top so that it pops right off. Clean it out and cut a hole in the top that's just big enough to stash your valuable items inside.
當你在海邊,做一個隱蔽的容器來減少東西被偷的機率。只要拿你不用的洗髮精罐子,扭轉頂端好讓它直接彈開。洗一洗,在頂部切開一個剛好大到能放入你值錢物品的洞。

Now you can snap the top back on, and your items are perfectly concealed. Anyone who sees this will just think it's a shampoo bottle, and chances are, nobody's wants to steal your shampoo.
現在你可以把蓋子蓋上,你的東西便完美地藏起來了。任何看到這個的人只會覺得這是洗髮精罐子,很有可能,沒有任何人想要偷你的洗髮精。

When you need a drink to cool down, hot water can taste disgusting. Try filling your water bottles a quarter of the way, so that when they're on their sides, the water settles just below the bottleneck. Now stick your bottles in the freezer and go on with your day.
現在你需要飲料來降溫,熱水喝起來會是很噁心的。試著將你的水瓶裝到四分之一處,如此一來當它們側放時,水面會剛好在瓶頸之下。現在把水瓶放在冷凍庫裡然後繼續過你的日子。

When the water is frozen, it will make an ice block on the side of the bottle, but doesn't block the opening. Now when you need to cool off, just take a bottle from the freezer, fill it up with your favorite drink, and you've got an instant, icy cold beverage ready to go.
當水冷凍後,它會在瓶子側邊形成一塊冰磚,但又不會擋住開口處。現在當你需要清涼一下,只要從冷凍庫拿出一罐,裝滿你最愛的飲料,你就有瓶立即的冰涼飲料準備好了。
