Advice♪ Mother's life Hacks 101 (Pro-tip level: over 9000!)
はじめました (Nice to meet you)
This column is dedicated to recommended daily life hacks for busy mothers. With budget in mind I am also demonstrating that these ideas and DIY can be done utilizing items from your local dollar store (got your attention?). Because I love to work with my hands and create things, I’d like to show you some creative ways to make stuff using everyday products.
Now let me first introduce to you the products we will be working with today.
A glue gun!
A Glue Gun!?
While it's very convenient, it can even be found in the 100 yen shop ($1 store).
This glue gun goes for 200 yen, with refill glue sticks for 100 yen (DAISO)
transparent white, white, brown, and black. Today we will give you an introduction into the art of the glue gun. For all mothers out there you can probably empathize with my plight, a child's slipping sock problem...
Smaller childrend that have non-slip pads on the backs of their socks are lucky but what can you do as they get older?
- -Glue gun
-Cooking sheet (also DAISO)
The extension cord is actually required! A plug converter is necessary as well.
This is because the glue gun is cheap, and the code is short! (look at the pictures and you'll see the length. LOL)
The use the cooking sheet for practice using the glue gun, because it's a bit trickier than it looks. If it does not stick, then it's not ready to apply just yet.
- Practice makes perfect or well..kinda good
- Since the 100-yen shop glue gun doesn't have an on/off switch, while plugged in, it's always on.
Once I left to do something and the glue continued to spew out the gun in a nice puddle below
Please be careful not to leave it plugged in. Once you've decided what you want to draw on the socks,
wield your glue gun and cut loose.
-Though it may look like a toy, the glue gun tip is very hot so keep your kids away.
