Place old silica packets in your toolbox to reduce the likelihood of rusted tools.

Silica packets (also known as oxygen scavengers/absorbers) are usually included with food packaging to help reduce the amount of oxygen in the package. You can repurpose these by putting them in your toolbox. This will help reduce moisture and in turn prevent any rust from forming on your tools. Works well especially in coastal areas.

Waterproof canvas shoes with beeswax

If you've got canvas shoes like Tom's slip-ons, you can water proof them quite easily with a beeswax bar. Simply coat the entire shoes with the wax, and then take a hair dryer and "melt" it in to the canvas. The coating should start to embed itself into the shoes. For best results, let it set overnight.

Reheat cold or frozen pizza by steaming it.

Want to know the best way to reheat pizza? Turn the stove on and heat up a pan (medium-high heat). Place the cold or frozen pizza into the pan, and pour a 1/4 cup of water next to the pizza slice(s). It should immediately start to steam. Cover with a lid. Once the steam has released, burn off the rest of the water to crisp up the under carriage. Enjoy your perfectly reheated pizza.
