Many of us can relate to this video. Do you remember the first time you hit treasure when you were sorting through your grandparents’ junk in their basement? Those old soggy boxes didn’t look like a nuisance anymore. How about the time when you saw your grandfather fixing something and his tricks looked totally crazy, but they turned out genius at the end? Well, this video might have the explanation to everything.

Sorting through the basement, the HouseholdHacker found an interesting edition of 1001 - How-to Ideas from 1957. He was wondering whether these tips and trick no less than 60 years old would still work today, so he decided to give them a try. He chose sixteen hacks he thought would still work today and decided to make them.

He started with a paint cleaning mechanism using a U-shaped magnet. He then followed with an interesting mechanism to help you move heavy objects without leaving scratches, a DIY lamp and the most delicious way to cook some bacon.

Number five was a very clever way of pouring liquids down a funnel, followed by a nifty door mechanism, a potato hack and a staple remover. He informed us about various uses of hand soap, iron and brass wool. He also gave a few tips on screwing and hammering nails, as well as hiding your valuables and taking your loaf of bread out of the oven, even protecting your wood surfaces from scratching.
