Hacks are little tips and ideas that change your life in small, but substantial ways. Here are the top 12 timeless hacks that everyone should know.

1. Rub walnuts on wooden furniture to cover up dings. The oils from the walnut match up pretty well with most wood stains.

2. To rid your shower head of soap residue, tie a leak-free bag of vinegar around a shower head using thin rope or a rubber band. Remove bag after 1 night. It should be nice and shiny.

3. Cut a toilet paper roll down the middle (the long way) and sheath wrapping paper to keep it from unrolling.

4. Make more room in your closet by using a soda-pop tab to offset hangers. Do this by putting one of the tab holes through the head of the hanger. Now attach an additional hanger to the remaining tab hole.

5. Use toothpaste to remove the haziness on your car headlights by first applying it to the area, then remove by wiping it with a dry towel.

7. Use a shoe rack to store almost any cleaning supply.
