The #OTLifeHack campaign (during the month of July) is an international collaboration between occupational therapy associations from Canada, the US, Britain, Ireland, Spain, New Zealand and Australia.
A life hack is any trick, shortcut, or new method that solves an everyday problem, and the #OTLifeHack campaign aims to share these simple, bite-sized, consumer-friendly tips for easier daily living by using the power of social media.
The campaign is taking place on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Google+ right now. What’s your best OT Life Hack? Search the hashtag, follow OT Australia on Twitter or Instagram, or on Facebook and join in the fun!
I'm just learning about hastags but if you follow on FB... you can search #OTlifeHack on FB to find lots of brilliant ideas too.
Here is one my #OTLifeHack ...playdough unstuck.
Have you ever had this problem?
Playdough stuck to carpet. Dried playdough.
The solution for removing it was relatively simple. I took out my hairspray.
Yes, it worked! You have to trust that the after photo is the same patch of carpet but it is just a few sprays of hairspray and a damp cloth.
Done. Back to original state~ reasonably clean carpet. Simple solution to an everyday problem.
You may have also read a previous post I wrote about various ways for little ones to "hold" their cards. Read it here. Simple solutions to an everyday problem, that is what OT's are dubbing an #OTlifehack.
Today I am also linking up with some other OT bloggers. Make sure you check out their #OTlifehacks too! Note that these links will be live approximately 7pm Sydney time tonight so please come back again to check these out if you are reading it earlier.
What's your favourite #OTlife hack? Have you tried hairspray on stuck playdough?
