  • My mother doesn’t want me to put anything on my face, even if it’s still skin care, she said I always seem to make myself beautiful, she said i was just ruining my skin.��

    And now I’m 16 and I still don’t have a skin care��

  • My mother has an extreme sense of smell and she can smell when people use sponges on their countertops, It stinks. So I guess she is right about them being disgusting.

  • My parents won’t let me get less than a Bbecause they want me to be their miniature brain man. That means: NO play station, NO YouTube, (I’m a mega rule breaker), and no border movies because my mom thinks I’m a little kid and the Hunger games is too “violenr” when she lets me watch iron man and the avengers. I’m glad I got that off my chest☺

  • When i tell my mom about any good skincare routine for sensitive skin that i want to follow she says to me that

    Mom: No u won’t follow this this is going to harm your skin ��
    Me: ok ������������������������

  • I love how you make absolutely relevant videos. Thank you. You have inspired me to start my own channel too. I am a teacher and a mother to a three year old. I would love some support and love from people like you and other mothers here. Thank you for making videos and helping us out! We love you.

  • I am going to try the soap hack. I have one that is awesome. knit or use a kids loom to make dish cloths out of 100 percent cotton yarn. They are easy to clean, don’t get stinky as fast. They are fairy easy to make once you get the hang of it and the process of making them are a great stress and anxiety relief or just something to do on a long bus or train ride or waiting at a doctor’s office. Cotton also feels cool to the touch in contrast to wool yarn that is delightfully cozy warm for throw blankest.

  • But when do we need do all these… i mean in daytime when you’re getting up early from your bed or in the night time before you go to the bed it’s a great question going all around my mind??

    Aww she has such a nice personality i’m impressed with her behavior.. so sweet����

  • Here’s a few extra tips for you:
    People confuse sanitize and sterilize quite a bit. You cannot sterilize inside a dishwasher, and sanitize is not anywhere near the same thing.
    Also! Cut your sponges into tiny 1″ x 2″ mini sponges, they’re just as effective and you can greatly extend the life of a single sponge.

  • Well my mum literally tells us not to wear makeup cuz it ages ur skin as for the rest of skin care my sis our hair n skin care manager

  • Hi Ally! I enjoyed the video, thanks for showing us more about your heath life style! I’d found your channel recently and I like the way you do your videos, because your videos are pretty good and I guess you’re the first person who I’d seen that do videos about tips in the realistic way. Thanks for this! �� (I’m sorry for some mistakes I’d done I’m learning how to speak English)

  • I going to do this rn! I have acne and I’m only 10-11 �� I hate it so much and I get bullied because of it�� I REALLY hope this works

  • I knew face steaming was good so for a while now I have been steaming my face by putting my face over hot rice, pasta or tea and I have tea almost everyday.

  • people be like:
    to have clear skin u need to use this $500 cleanser, then this $100 moisturiser
    my friend with perfectly clear skin and no dark spots or texture:
    i use Irish spring and sunscreen

  • Hey! I know I’m a year late to comment on this but I have another suggestion for something cool to hang on your wall. In the major city that I live near they have a store full of curiosities, and one of the things they sell are random old photo’s. They have bins with (what must be) tens of thousands of photo’s, without any context to them. However what I like to do is imagine what the context is, what situation that photo was taken in and who the people in the photos are, and I have made up entire stories to these random black and white photo’s that I got.

  • I have terrible news for the many of you saying that it is possible to fully sterilize a sponge by microwaving it: https://www.nytimes.com/2017/08/04/science/sponges-bacteria-microwaving-cleaning.html (That said, sponges do not generally transmit diseases; I am just a bit… irrational on this front.)
    Also if you like learning life hacks from Sarah as much as I do, you’ll love her videos about art history and practice: https://www.youtube.com/theartassignment -John

  • All of these are great except the soap one. Throw out slivers of soap. Even antibacterial soap cant completely stop bacterial growth and most bar soap isn’t antibacterial. Soap’s main function is to be slippery and wash off dirt. But when it dries bacteria can grow on it just like anything else. Merging an old soap bar with a new one is like taking torn off bits of old sponges and making a new one with it. If your soap is too small to hold THROW IT AWAY.

  • its been almost (and apparently, only) a year since ive seen this video for the first time and id like to extend a thank you to sarah (and john for sharing her wisdom) for the knowledge of the double loop. i have always tied shoelaces just fine, but they always, always come undone, and since i have very bad joints, my wonderful friends have had to assist me in tying them when we’re walking between locations because i am not bending over to tie my shoes until i am certain i dont have to stand again for a good while. that life hack has literally been lifechanging, not only because my shoes stop coming undone (even though i know i tied them right why are they LOOSE-) but also because i no longer have to feel like a little kid having my shoes tied by someone else because i dont have the stamina to bend over and do it myself multiple times a day, and its helped way more than id expect. i just thought of this video while tying my shoes and i had to say thanks.

  • I used to keep toothbrushes for a long, long time. Years even. As long as the bristles were intact enough to hold tootpaste, I was good

  • I can confirm hanging things on your wall can drastically improve your life. It’s a great way to store stuff while making it easy to find later.

  • One thing I learned from myself I use Lemons+ tea tree oil I use it for my face and I had a very nice skin after I would use ice after I apply Lemon+ Tea tree oil! it works tell me below if it worked for you!

  • The real questions here are how bad did your parents screw up, that you didn’t grow up knowing these absolute basics of hygiene? How terrible is our society that it didn’t shame you out of these awful habits in early adulthood? How much longer will men rely on romance to teach them basic decency? If you, an okay human being and an intellectual, a curious mind, an avid learner, doesn’t think to wash his gross, damp, smelly towels regularly, what hope do the politically manipulated, economically marginalized massed have?

  • Two sponges. Thoroughly rinse one out every week and let it sit out and completely dry, while you switch to the other one. If you do this, they don’t grow horrifying bacteria and get that awful smell… you know the smell I speak of:/

  • This is cute and well-meaning but I really wish parents would teach their kids, including the male children, basic hygiene. It shouldn’t be a wife’s job to teach this to her partner.
    I experienced the same thing with my husband. His mother taught him practically NOTHING. ugh.

  • Looking for Alaska, Alternate ending

    I loved your book, but it could have been even more spicy. It should have ended with Alaska surviving the crash and she crawled in the woods because she was paralyzed from the waist down. They had a closed casket funeral because her dad was in on it. Sadly though Jake committed suicide which would be the only downside the the ending.

  • I actually can’t tie my shoes with just one loop. It falls apart. In kindergarten, someone taught me the double loop and I was finally able to tie my shoes.

  • This is the first video when I can hear Hank and your voices have similarity.
    And today was washing day so I get to have clean sheets!

  • Last month I met a woman in a local town hall who was filling for a divorce citing “He combines soap! Can you believe it?” as the main reason of her frustration with the spouse. So, just a word of warning: economy and lack of waste is great but one really should consult their significant other before messing with any common use objects in the living space.

  • Super secret kitchen sponge jack::
    When I finish washing dishes I thoroughly rinse and ‘wring out’ my sponge then I add hot water a literal drop of dish soap after which I ‘wring ‘ it out again.

    P.s. screw punctuation lol

  • I use silicone wash pads both in the shower and for my dishes. They don’t hold water and grime rinses right off, Plus they last FORever.

  • Did your wife ever wondered about the implications of the military industrial complex in carbon footprint and corruption…?
    Ps do I need to add that this video is 100% chauvinistic?

  • If nothing else, this video reminded me that it’s been two weeks and I need to do a load of sheets and towels. Time passes weirdly in college. Thanks John ❤️

  • The thing about washing sheets is it is SO HARD to get them back on. So hard in fact that I once gave up, wrote a poem about it, and then resumed.

  • Does anyone has any life hack to dry the bed sheet? I live in a small apartment. I do not have any space to dry my bed sheet after I wash it… Or should I just use dryer?

  • The problem is that you allow Room for the worst bacteria and you don’t remove the nutrients. If you keep a culture of safe bacteria around and colonize your sponge with it after you sterilize it it should work pretty well.

  • My makeup routine
    Step 1: Clean my face
    Step 2: sunscreen / moisturizer
    ������dont have money to buy such expensive make up products (teenager��) ����also dont know how to use them at all…

  • They tell us: you can tell me anything!

    But it’s a different story when were ‘snitching’ seriously? My parents did every one of these

  • John, you’ve inspired me to go out and buy some frames because I never really thought much about art work or decorations.. and I’m sick of the stuff my grandparents put on the walls. I got a pack of 6 11×17 frames, printed out some of my photographs of my dominoes on my photo printer, and hung them up all by myself. I feel good and having my own space feel like mine is really quite nice. thanks John:)


  • Another cheap wall decoration, calendar pictures, in high school I got a horse calendar for Christmas one year and at the end of the year I cut off the tops with the pictures and put them on walls because I love horses

  • Honestly how do men survive?
    We need to bring back home economics but teach it exclusively to boys �� because apparently they aren’t learning it elsewhere.
    But actually, everybody needs home economics, as weird of a name as it has

  • I sort of hate that this confirms the stereotype of the woman being the practical one who holds the husband together—signed the women who believes all the things you did before you met your wife.

  • As a single man in my 20ies with a six figure salary…
    Yes I do live in a two room appartement with 8 unadorned white walls, I sometimes go a couple weeks without changing my sheets, and yes I just did the laundry and forgot to throw in the towel.
    I don’t own a dishwasher. If I did then I’d have fewer excuses to eat out.

  • Whenever I hear about situations like this I think “good for him that he learnt this and that he appreciates his wife for it” but also “like… doesn’t he have a mother?” Because I learnt all these hacks from my mother.

  • I am 13 and my parents have never taught me any of these bad lessons since I was born. They only taught me the “What should you teach instead” parts. I am happy to have those kind of parents.

  • The life hack of opening bottles with a ring is the thing that made my promise ring to be a permanent accessory that is always in my left hand. Since getting this ring I’ve opened hundreds of bottles and pulled out a bottle opener like twice.

  • (° ͡ ͜ʖ° ͡)(° ͡ ͜ʖ° ͡)(° ͡ ͜ʖ° ͡)(° ͡ ͜ʖ° ͡)(° ͡ ͜ʖ° ͡)(° ͡ ͜ʖ° ͡)(° ͡ ͜ʖ° ͡)(° ͡ ͜ʖ° ͡)(° ͡ ͜ʖ° ͡)(° ͡ ͜ʖ° ͡)(° ͡ ͜ʖ° ͡)(° ͡ ͜ʖ° ͡)

  • JOSEPHINE COCHRAN WAS THE FIRST FEMALE SCIENTIST I HEARD OF and she inspires me SO MUCH!! I’m so happy she was mentioned here! Ok I’m done

  • Love you, John, and some of these hacks are truly amazeballs (the extra loop on the laces, how did I never know this?!??!)…

    But wooden cutting boards? How did you ever manage to survive to adult hood?

  • A year later, another hack you may have discovered by now: Trade in your wooden cutting board for a heavy glass one fast and easy to clean, hygenic, and it will last forever unless you drop it on concrete.

  • My number was 6 when I was in nursery my parents said work harder and I worked hard and then I got 5 medals and my number will never be less than 3 means I roll number will 1 or 2 only.

  • I wish I saw this 2 weeks ago before putting our one and only wooden cutting board in the dishwasher..

    Damn thing split apart and bowed across the middle causing it to spin on the counter top whenever pressure was applied

  • My mom gives me taunts if I try I do a lot of skincare:( she thinks I am getting super girly. She doesn’t allow me to wear makeup too:(

  • And I love your wife… glad come across this channel: finally something to truly learn from. Thank you for teaching some new stuff.

  • Hey Ally what do you think of galaxy shoes? Is there a way to style them or are they just too tacky? I bought a pair a couple months ago but i thought it was too tacky so I’ve never worn it at all.

  • Just in time. I was so stressed this week in my work. Thank you for helping me out. Love love! ��

    The one who always loves you,
    Ives ��

  • Try bringing your own reusable box instead of using a lot of plastic take away boxes. Not only keeping you healthy but helping the planet:)

    Some of my healthy habuts are:

  • Omg you are honestly just like me gurl… I have a CRAZY high metabolism (I am 18 and weigh 90lb) and CANNOT fall asleep because of my active mind!!! Love this vid and it really helps!

  • I really liked the lessons. The fact that you say what shouldnt be done, then you give the bright side.
    I have felt so guilty because to be honest, i have fallen short in like 6 of them. Thanks a lot.
    Only that seeing real people may have been more effective

  • When my friend wonders why I don’t resemble my mother, but I am my mother’s biological child because I resemble my father physically and my skin isn’t smooth and glowing. My mother is beautiful, I wonder what the secret is. I ask her and this is the answer:

    “I never use anything, I only use water used to wash rice.”

    I never do this routine (because my mom always dispose the water used to wash rice) but guys i need your comment if this secret worth it.

  • I am a Kid and I can relate so much to this video! I have a lot of bottled up emotions that I sometimes go and cry in my room. I know I can tell my parents but then instead of just being there to help and comfort me they turn it into some teach moment you did this or this is also bad and at some points I feel like shouting out at them about how I feel but I know I am just going to get in trouble. Which this video is teaching me alot.

  • Any video you create I love because you put so much thought, hard work and love into them. You are a great person who inspires us all to be ourselves.Thanks for sharing Ally!

  • I had an extremely hard upbringing and my mother along with me now realizes how important educated parenting is to prevent mental issues and raise a happy well rounded child. I am planning to become a mother myself in the next year or so, (I am 27) so I am researching as much as I can to make sure I know how to handle situations and make my child feel loved, trusted and accepted. These videos are very helpful and I thank you for making them.

  • I think my parents wouldn’t care at all if I showed them these steps, either bc some of them, they don’t thinks its right, or they think a kid is using a voice changer to manipulate others


  • I don’t know if it sterilizes the sponge completely, but I like to pour boiling water over mine. I mean… that should kill most bacteria, right??

  • about the kitchen sponges: you can put them either in the washing machine or wet them and put them in the microwave for 1 minute so not need to throw them away!!

  • Sponges do get gross fast, thats why i microwave them when they get smelly. It boils off the bacteria, you can rinse out the sponge, and keep using it for a lot longer rather than just throwing it out after like a week or two

  • My parents always force me to do things, literally. For example my mom forced me to wear a dress and so much makeup I looked like a brat. When I said to her I wasn’t comfortable wearing it, she starting yelling at me saying I always raise up her pressure, and will say that she’ll disown me or that I don’t make her happy. It’s like she doesn’t care how I even feel.
    Another thing is that she doesn’t even have time for what I have to say, if I even say something she’ll just get mad or just tell me to leave cause she’s busy.
    And last everytime I get judged for everything I do, my interest, music, hobbies, and etc. And they wonder why I don’t like going around them. There’s more too the list

  • Lol well my family ruined me then lol
    But eh whats done is done. If i ever have children of my own or end up raising other children who aren’t mine i will do what i can to instill the positive alternatives presented here in this epic video. Thank you Bright Side

  • Thank you so much ma’am…….for teaching so beautiful exercises…….. i don’t have emoji keyboards so i can give any emoji…….to Express my feelings…….. but…… Thank you so much 5 minutes craft

  • Yoga is not only about twisting and turning yourself it’s a lot more than that. Asanas are just a part of it. Yoga is not necessarily twisting yourself until you look like a leftover noodle.
