Hack or Hassle? Life hack for finding missing items

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGFIELD, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -

In this edition of ‘Hack or Hassle’, we tested out a life hack that could help you find small items that turn up missing.

Life hacks have picked up steam on the internet over the past several years.  They are low-cost life savers and tips and tricks designed to make everyday tasks easier.

While many life hacks that have surfaced on the internet have been successes, some end up being hassle.

We have set out to put popular life hacks to the test

Monday's test: using a vacuum and a stocking to find small items you may have lost on the floor.

Small nails, earrings, anything tiny can easily get lost in the carpet.

Get out your vacuum and roll a stocking over the attachment.  Meanwhile, somewhere on the floor was an earring.

We ran the vacuum over the area where we thought the earring may be hiding, then turned the attachment over to see your missing item.

Low-and-behold, there was the earring!

Verdict: we'll call this life hack tip a winner,

Are there any gems you have come across that have turned up to be real time savers?  Have you ever tried a hack that ended up being a hassle?
