Make a Lamp from an Orange in 1 minute.
 
01:43
How to make a simple oil lamp with two standard household items. You will need an orange (fruit) and olive oil. This will enable us to create our own lamp in case of a power outage. No electricity needed and fun to make. We will show you how the stem of the orange will act as the wick and will actually last 6-8 hours. To add a nice effect use the top of the cut off orange as a shield. You may even get a natural citrus smell as a bonus. Who needs those 20 dollar expensive candles anyway? Be sure to check out out links and fanpages. Follow us on twitter. Remember it is kitchen science week so tune in to our next 2 videos coming out shortly!

New Videos Weekly: http://goo.gl/0urvE7 Visit Audible: http://audible.com/household Facebook: http://facebook.com/HackThePlanet Google+: https://www.google.com/+HouseholdhackerTv Twitter: http://twitter.com/HouseholdHacker Don't spend hundreds of dollars on a portable A/C for your home, just build one for $8 dollars and 10 minutes of your time! You can pick up a Styrofoam cooler for about $4 at most stores. Dryers vents cost about $2 dollars a pop. All you need after that is an old fan and some frozen bottles of water! Once your box is completed following the instructions in the video, simply add the frozen bottles of water and go to town. My home was 78 degrees and after running the box in the living room for a couple hours it dropped into the 60's which is fantastic on a hot day! If you load the cooler with frozen bottles, the cooler will last anywhere from 3-6 hours which gives you enough time to have another set of bottles freezing in the interim. This is great for single rooms on a hot day and will drop the overall temperature quite a bit. Enjoy!

7 Survival Life Hacks That Could Save Your Life
 
02:17
Here are some AMAZING quick and simple life hacks in this survival edition. Enjoy! Check out AUDIBLE! http://audible.com/household 1. Need some light in a pinch and a candle alone won't cut it? Grab a soda can and cut open the sides, fold them out and place the candle in. This will reflect your light and give you some decent protection from the elements. 2. If you ever find yourself without a clean water source grab a piece of cloth and 2 containers. Put the dirty water in one container and run the cloth from it to the empty glass. After a short while, you will have filtered, muck-free water. Remember to boil.. 3. Need to get a cooking fire going with minimal effort? Grab an empty egg carton and place charcoal into the slots. Seal it up, light a corner and enjoy. 4. If the mosquitoes are getting bad you can repel them easily using common household herbs. Since you already have that little cooking fire going, sprinkle some basil or drop some rosemary on the coals. The bugs can't stand it and will stay far away. 5. How about a solar microwave? Grab a small food box and cut out a fold. Wrap the top in aluminum foil and line the inner box with it as well. Place your food inside and give it some time. You now have a solar charged grilled cheese sandwich. 6. Need to find the right direction home? Get a small sliver of metal such as a needle and rub it against your clothing several times. Place the needle on a leaf and float it in some water. The needle will point you North. 7. And finally, the emergency oil lamp. Grab some old cloth and bundle it up. Take a soda can and fill it about halfway with olive oil. Place the cloth into the can and light. You have yourself a makeshift oil lamp that will last hours.

Quick & Simple April Fools Pranks
 
03:33
Take your pranking on April Fools’ to the next level. Let's get sneaky & clever and really mess with our friends and family this April 1st. Join our mailing list for giveaways! http://householdhacker.tv/list Here are the pranks we will be doing today: 1. Let’s start with Donuts! Get yourself a box of glazed donuts and spread them out on some paper. Take a damp paper towel and get the tops wet enough to be sticky. After that, grab some basic flour and sprinkle it all over the tops of the donuts. They will look like delicious powdered donuts not all you have to do is offer one to a friend and let the dust fly. 2. Do you know someone who likes washing their hands… geez I hope so… Grab their bar of soap and cut out a block in the bottom of it. Make sure you keep the soap shavings on the side. Now grab some kool aid or any colorful drink powder and dump it in the gap. Carefully mold the soap shavings over the hole and form a good seal around the powder. Once it’s solid, put it under the water and rub the soap until you get the surface nice and smooth like it was in the beginning. After a few hand washes, the thin layer will burst giving way to bloody murder. 3. Grab a roommate’s shampoo bottle and get some syran wrap. Open up the cap and secure a small layer over the opening. Seal it back up and wait. Next time they go to use their shampoo, nothing will come out even though the bottle might feel full. 4. Alright… It’s chowder time. Some people love canned fruit. Snatch a can of theirs and flip it over to open it from the bottom. Then empty out the contents into a bowl to eat later. Now get another can of something they hate… in this case… clam chowder. Empty it into the fruit can and then bust out a bit of super glue. Put a seal around the the lid and secure it back into place. When your victim goes into get their delicious peaches, they’re going to find that they are CHOWDA this world. 5. Here’s a fun but harmless prank to pull on your friends who often leave their phone laying around. Next time they go away for a bit and leave their phone near you, get your hands on some rubber bands… might want to plan ahead and have them on you. Now wrap their phone over and over and over until the entire thing is encapsulated by a rubber band force field. Next sneak off and call their phone. Now stay hidden and smirk with wicked satisfaction as they attempt to answer it. 6. Time to get MAYO-RIFFIC! Get a hold of a friend’s hand lotion and empty it out completely into another container. Once empty, grab a bottle of mayonnaise and carefully squirt or load it into the empty lotion bottle. It doesn’t need to be filled all the way but get enough in there to prevent suspicion. When they go to use the lotion for WHATEVER reason. They get to celebrate Cinco de MAYO instead. 7. Now what to do with that empty bottle of mayo… Hmmm… In my case, I got served with a dose of revenge. Grab the empty bottle and fill it up with vanilla pudding. Spooning it in shouldn’t be a problem, just take your time. Once full, close it off and wait for your victim to make a sandwich. After just one bite they will quickly realize something just isn’t right… ugh this was nasty… 8. And finally, nothing is more juvenile and fun than the appearance of errant feces. Find a pair of white underwear no one needs anymore. Place it down on a counter and get yourself some chocolate syrup or pudding. Pop it open and spread it all over the garment… Rub it all together and take a look at your masterful creation…. Mmmmmm NOW THAT’S POOPY! Take it into the bathroom and drop it on or around the toilet. The next person to walk in might think twice. This is also a great way to secure the bathroom all for yourself. -Social Media- Facebook: http://facebook.com/HackThePlanet Twitter: http://twitter.com/HouseholdHacker

Grab an empty toilet paper roll and cut a slit in it. Stick a couple tacks on both sides and you've just created an amplifier. 5. House smelling off and need to freshen it up?

2 Minute Survival Stove
 
01:49
The quickest and easiest way to build a simple survival stove lies in an empty can of tuna. Here is how to do it: Grab an empty tuna can or cat food can and punch about 22 holes in it around the top using a single hole puncher (yes it can take on aluminum). After you have your can punched out, you are almost ready for action. Get yourself some methylated alcohol and pour about an ounce in. Spark it up and give the can about 1 minute to prime itself. Now take your boil pot and set it on top. After about 4-5 minutes you will have a nice full boil and you will be ready to consume those MRE's you stored in your bunker. . .

Candle Powered Heater
 
01:55
Winter is cold and the heater costs a lot of money to run! Why not heat your room with a simple candle? Does it take longer? Yes! Light the candle a few hours before you want to go to bed. Then hop in to the sack.... WHOA! Is this bedroom really that warm? Oh, yes. Hack a heater and join the resistance. Space heaters take time to do their thing so don't be impatient, get it going early and enjoy the results later.... All it costs you is a simple candle. . .

Which Battery Lasts the Longest?
 
02:57
We put the major battery brands to the test to find out which battery will give you the most bang for your buck! Get your free audio book: http://audible.com/household Our testing process was fairly simple but effective. We used the exact same brand of flashlight (Maglite Xenon) all straight from the box. Each pair of batteries tested came from different stores around the Portland, OR area. Set 1 came from Fred Meyer, set 2 from Target and set 3 from Safeway. We did this to make sure we used different shipments and manufacturing dates from the battery companies. While the procedure was not necessarily scientific, it gives you an indication of what you might expect when purchasing not only batteries, but any product on the market today. It's always good to do your own research and make purchases based on what you find to work over a long period of time. The oddest result was with the Energizer 9x Ultimate. It did not perform as expected. After some research we found that this particular battery is mainly intended to be used in high-draw electronics such as digital cameras. However, the marketing on the box says it is GREAT for flashlights. Go figure...
