Tangled Necklaces While Travelling? We Take Care of That.

If you are heading on a trip this year, pack up your makeup and jewelry like a pro. Prevent a tangled mess of necklaces using only a couple of drinking straws, and save yourself the frustration of untangling them all when you arrive at your destination!

  1. Start with an untangled necklace.

  2. Take a regular drinking straw.

  3. Thread each necklace through the straw (or slit the straw and slide the chain in).

  4. For shorter necklaces, cut the straw to length.

  5. Pack them up, and you’re ready to go!

Peeling Too Many Potatoes? We Take Care of That.

Ever make massive potato salads or mashed potato batches? Maybe for a summer BBQ? Then you likely dread hand-peeling dozens of potatoes. For some, especially those with more “life experience,” that much peeling can severely irritate the elbows, wrists and hands. Ugh.

Don’t worry, London Drugs is here give your hands a hand with another handy life hack.

  1. Score a line around the middle of each potato with a good paring knife.
  2. Place the potatoes in a large stock pot, cover with water, and bring to just a boil. (Take advantage of your free time by prepping some other dishes for your meal!) Then carefully place them in cold water.
  3. Now you can peel the potatoes simply and easily, just by twisting the two sides apart with your hands.
  4. Remember, the potatoes aren’t cooked yet – they still need to be boiled, baked, or grilled! 

Whew. It’s that easy. No matter what hot water you’re in, London Drugs has you covered in store and online. And our prices mean you’ll always keep your cool.

Stripped Screw? We Take Care of That.

Ever tried to remove a screw only to find it was stripped and wouldn’t turn? Drat! Even if you’re short on time, LD has a handy home lifehack solution to help you get a grip.

 

  1. Cut a thick rubber band and lay it over the screw. (LD has office supplies)
  2. Press a screwdriver through the band and into the screw. (And tools)
  3. Now you can use the rubber to grip the screw’s rough edges.
  4. Remove the screw by turning as normal.

 

Whew. It’s that easy. No matter how badly you’re stuck, London Drugs has you covered in store and online. And our prices mean you’ll never feel worn out.
