Life hacks are supposed to be useful, right? That’s the whole point. While many life hacks are absolutely genius, there are some that are tested and not so true. Great hacks are meant to make your life easier and better, and those are the hacks that should be spread around.

So we’ll save you some time and future aggravation by showing you which of the many life hacks are bogus and not worth even trying.

So don’t bother.
