Have you ever tried to brush your car headlights with toothpaste? Trust us — it works better than any professional cleaner you can buy in the shops. Some things have more than one everyday function, and life can be made so much easier in unexpected ways if you think outside of the box.
GIGGAG collected a few simple hacks that fit into this category perfectly.

1. Use A pencil As a stylus.

The pencil "lead" is made mostly of conductive graphite and can conduct the small amounts of electricity required to activate the capacitive sensors in the touch screen. When you place your finger in the groove you made, the electricity from your body is conducted through the exposed graphite and activates the touch screen.
If you’re still not convinced or if you’re having trouble getting it to work, take these points into consideration:
Make sure the pencil is free from oil. There may be a thin layer of glue on the lead that prevents contact, so just scribble on a piece of paper to get rid of that. Make sure your pencil is made from graphite and not another composite or recycled material (green/eco pencils). Make the groove closer to the tip to improve contact.
