It is crystal clear that we cannot do without nurses in this world. These kind and humble people make sure that we get healthy when we are sick. With years of work, a nurse can be very valuable because he basically does everything from caring, feeding and treating the patients. In this article below, we will be dealing with eight amazing hacks that you need to know as a person these are:
- When you have a blocked nose and it is hard for you to breathe, the solution is to apply some toothpaste below your nose. The trick behind this is that toothpaste contains some menthol which helps to unblock the nose.
- When you feel uneasy, the best thing to do to relax yourself is to start folding towels and believe me it will work.
- If you have a minor cut and there is no bandage nearby, you can stop the bleeding by applying some superglue and it will surely seal the cut.
- If you have a bleeding nose, quickly get a sanitary pad, cut it in half and stick it into your nose but not deeply.
- If your cloth has a stain or being poured with blood, remove it by applying some hydrogen peroxide on the cloth to prevent the stain from sticking and to remove it too.
- If you are told to stop eating salty food and you cannot do without it, apply some lemon juice to the food and it will have a salty taste.
- If you happen to have your hands covered with a stubborn sticky substance, which does not get off, apply some shaving cream on the hands to loosen and break it off before washing the hands normally.
- Detangle a tangles hair easily by rubbing alcohol on it.

- Smear toothpaste on your finger— and below your nose.
OK, so the toothpaste-on-the-finger tricks? It’s to help your breathing! The menthol in the toothpaste blocks odors and stenches that are not only unpleasant, but can make it hard to breathe. Smear some on your hands to sniff when you need, use it more directly by smearing it below your nose, or double-up on face masks and put a layer of ointment between them. Toothpaste, Vicks VapoRub, and/or anything mentholated will work well!
This one isn’t (just) about cleaning up after patients; it’s about calming down! We all get anxious and worried sometimes, and simple folding – think towels, washcloths, and other things hard to mess up – is calming because the action distracts us and makes us feel useful without requiring intense concentration.
You know those liquid bandages that are becoming more and more popular? Guess what they resemble— superglue! If you don’t have any bandages, superglue absolutely works as a way to seal and protect your cuts, scrapes and injuries. Just apply a small amount and go about your business. Obviously, for deep or intense cuts, you should see a medical professional, but we can all take care of minor ones ourselves.
- Stop bleeding with a tampon.
Or a sanitary pad! Blood absorption is, after all, what they were designed to do. Stop a nosebleed by cutting a tampon in half and gently sticking it into your nose. Don’t go too deep! Use a sanitary pad to stop the bleeding from cuts, the same way you’d use any other cloth or gauze.
- Clean stains with hydrogen peroxide.
Whether the stain has set in already or the spill has just happened, hydrogen peroxide is your new best friend. Pour some on a cloth and dab to both prevent a stain from setting and to remove ones that have already settled.
One of the most common diet directives you get in a hospital is to cut out salt, but that can leave your food tasting bland, especially if you’re used to a high-sodium diet. Add some flavor without endangering your health by sprinkling lemon juice on your meals.
- Wash your skin with shaving cream.
Let’s say your hands are covered in a particularly sticky substance you can’t get off no matter how hard you try. Use shaving cream like a lotion to help break it up, break it down, and take it off, then finish off with wipes or your regular cleaning routine.
- Detangle your hair with rubbing alcohol.
If your hair is severely tangled or matted, you can use rubbing alcohol to detangle it. It works by breaking down whatever substance caused the tangles and undoing the knots. Simply put a few drops on the area and gently massage it through your hair.
