If necessity is the mother of invention, then who’s the father? Trick question! It’s necessary for every father to be an inventor. Because when you have a kid occupying every spare moment of your time, other basic creature comforts — like having a clean shirt for work that doesn’t look like origami practice paper — can easily fall by the wayside unless you adapt.
The geniuses who created these simple house cleaning hacks are prime examples of fatherly inventors. Or adapters. Whatever, no time for separating metaphors. Point is, these guys figured out a way to turn an empty sink into a space-saving drying rack, shine the shower tiles with power tools, fold a shirt in milliseconds, and mop while they walk, presumably because their hands are occupied carrying the kid. Take a gander and you’ll know how to do the same. All in less than 80 seconds, because, well, you know.
