Life Hacks with Neodymium Magnets

Neodymium magnets are some of the strongest magnets available on the market today. They’re used in hundreds of everyday electronic gadgets, so even if you’ve never heard of them you might be surprised to hear that you probably have at least 1 or 2 of these super strength magnets in your household right now. But what else can they be used for?

Magnets are incredibly useful tool not only in the manufacture of electrical products, but also in our day to day lives. If you’ve ever wondered why our neodymium magnets might be of any use for you, then we’re about to share five amazing life hacks with you to get you inspired!

1. Keep food fresher, longer

Food wastage around the home can often feel difficult to avoid, especially when a great deal of snacks and foods tend to come in large ‘shareable’ sized bags and packaging. Tupperware, tin foil or cling film can be an option, but for those of us trying to limit the amount of plastic we have in our homes then magnets can provide a great alternative. Simply fold over the top of a packet and ‘seal’ it shut using two strong neodymium magnets. So long as you fold the packet over tightly, then the magnet will help create a seal, leaving your food fresher for longer.

2. Create spice jar storage

We don’t know about you, but there just never seems to be enough kitchen cupboard space. Trying to find enough room for all of your pots, pans, kitchen gadgets and of course your food, can be tricky, so why not get creative? Using just some neodymium magnets and some magnetic paint, you can create a spice jar wall. There are plenty of tutorials available on Pinterest & Instagram, so what are you waiting for? Free up some cupboard space, and keep all your spices ready to grab whenever you might need them.

3. Organise your keys

Always losing your keys? We’re all guilty of misplacing our house or car keys from time to time, so keeping them organised is key – excuse the pun! Luckily, it’s not hard to create convenient storage for your keys to keep them organised in one safe space. Simply stick a row of neodymium magnets using a strong adhesive to your wall, or onto a piece of wood/plastic which can be wall mounted, and that’s literally it! You can then stick your keys to the magnets as soon as you come in the front door, and then easily pull them off when you’re ready to go out again. Simple!

4. Keep important paperwork together

When it comes to holding onto important paperwork, paperclips are all well and good, but when you have a large amount of paperwork you need to keep organised, then a single paperclip just won’t cut it. Luckily neodymium magnets will keep your paperwork together, no matter how many pages there are! Their incredibly strong magnetic field means they won’t struggle keeping even a few hundred sheets of paper clipped together.

5. Organise your tools

Whether you use your tools for trade of just casual DIY and maintenance around your home, storing and organising tools can be difficult. Toolboxes and bags can leave you digging around trying to find the right spanner or hammer, which ends up being right at the bottom of the bag. But strong magnets offer an inventive and creative storage solution. Adhere your magnets to either your garage or shed wall, door, or desk, and you’re ready to go. Your metallic tools will then conveniently stick to the magnets. Even your heavier tools will feel safe and secure due to the extremely strong magnetic field.
