Life is full of countless mundane tasks that steal your time. The more time passes, the more acutely aware you become that time is a finite resource. It is impossible to retrieve time which has passed, making it one of your most valuable assets. Finding ways to reduce wasted time is a top priority for most.


With the release of the new Galaxy S6, Samsung is giving you the power to reclaim your time and how you choose to use it. Thanks to its fast-charging capability, Galaxy S6 can achieve up to four hours of usage after just 10 minutes on the charger. S6 also comes equipped with other convenient charging options, like built-in wireless charging technology. Less time needed for a longer charge means you can focus your time on more important things.
In the spirit of giving back your time, here’s more time-saving tricks you can do in 10 minutes or less, while you charge your Galaxy S6. (Multi-tasking saves even more time!)


1. Say Good-bye to the Morning Scramble


To shave at least 10-15 minutes off your morning routine, steam your clothes by hanging them in the bathroom while you shower. Let the steam do the hard work for you. Now you can spend those extra minutes relaxing with a cup of coffee, organizing your day, catching up on current events, or getting to the office early for a change. Saving those precious minutes could even give you 10 more minutes of sleep, and who doesn’t want more time to sleep?


2. Cool Down Warm Drinks (Almost) Instantly


If you need to cool down a warm beverage fast, wrap your glass, bottle, or can in a wet paper towel. Place your beverage in the freezer and it should be ice cold in about 10 minutes. You can also put your beverage in a pot or large bowl, fill it with ice, then add 2 cups of salt and fill with water. Your beverage will be ready to consume in no time. After a long day at work, no one’s got time to wait for a refreshment.




3. Multi-Purpose Sticky Notes and Be Eco-Friendly


Before you throw away the sticky note reminders plastered all over your desk you no longer need, you can get one more use out of them. Slide it between the keys of your keyboard for a quick clean. Dirt and dust will stick to the sticky note, and you can reach the tight spaces that even a cotton swab can’t fit. This trick is a time-saver and it’s eco-friendly.




4. Break in New Shoes in No Time (and No Pain!)


It can take what feels like an eternity to break in new shoes. Each excruciating moment seems to last forever. Save yourself the time and pain with this life hack. First, put on your thickest socks with your new shoes. If you are lucky enough to live somewhere that doesn’t require thick socks, put on a couple pairs. Then, use a blow dryer on your feet. The heat will make the material of your shoes more pliable and the thickness of the socks will help stretch them even more. Make sure to move your feet as you would when walking naturally as you apply heat so your shoes stretch and mold to the most comfortable shape. It’s no longer necessary to sacrifice comfort for style, at least for your feet!




5. A Picture is Worth 1,000 Grocery Lists


Forever writing grocery lists, just to leave them stuck to the fridge when you go to the grocery store? Instead of wasting time (and paper) writing grocery lists you always forget, try taking a photo of food items when you notice they are running low. You’ll always have your phone on you, even when you make a spontaneous stop for dinner supplies. You can delete the photos as you buy them, like checking items off your list. For multi-member households, you can share photos easily so you’ll never get the wrong kind of spaghetti sauce again.


6. Just Nuke It


How many hours have you toiled away at cleaning grease and stuck-on food from your microwave? Or do you pretend not to see the filth and hope the magic cleaning fairies will find their way to your kitchen? Clean your microwave fast by nuking a mixture of 2/3 water and 1/3 white vinegar for three to four minutes. Everything should wipe clean with ease using a damp cloth. Microwaves speed up cooking and cleaning.




7. Wardrobe Tricks In a Rush


If your button is getting loose, but you’ve got no time to sew a button, paint clear nail polish over the button (and thread). This keeps it from unraveling. Zipper stuck? Everyone knows the longer you try to fix it, the more stuck it seems to get. When in a jam, use Vaseline to unstick a zipper. Stain removal is a major pain, and such a time-sucker. For fast easy prewashing, use hairspray on lipstick stains, shaving foam on makeup stains, and wine white to remove red wine.


These common everyday hacks help you save as many precious minutes as possible, just like the fast-charging power of Samsung Galaxy S6. You can finish any of these life hacks in the 10 minutes it takes for Galaxy S6 to reach 4 hours of usage. With other features like Ultra Power Saving Mode and Smart Manager, managing power consumption is a breeze. S6 also comes with other convenient charging features, like built-in wireless charging technology, so you can stop worrying about your battery life and start enjoying more of your life.
