Treat a hangnail
Get rid of a hangnail overnight while you sleep. Before going to bed, apply hand cream to the affected area, wrap the fingertip with plastic wrap and secure it in place with transparent tape. The plastic wrap will confine the moisture and soften the cuticle.
Enhance ointment treatment
For pain in your knee or other sore spots, rub in some ointment and wrap the area with plastic wrap. The wrap will increase the heating effect of the ointment. Make sure to test on a small area first to make sure your skin does not burn.
Protect your phone
Screen protectors can run anywhere from $15 to $40, but one box of cling wrap is roughly $4 or so, making a DIY plastic wrap protector a no-brainer. First, make sure to clean your phone screen. Then cut the plastic wrap, so it’s about three inches bigger than your screen. Stretch and smooth it over your screen and wrap any excess in the back of your phone before cutting it off. Then put your regular phone case in place.
