THIS week saw kids head back to school after months of being at home.
And in preparation for the new school term, busy parents have been stocking up on stationary, backpacks, uniforms and lunchboxes.
A handy way to keep track of school supplies and uniforms is name labels which are sewn or ironed in place.
But one mum has shared the clever way she tackles the labelling task which gets it done in half the time and is super easy to do.
Posting in the Facebook group Family Lockdown Tips and Ideas, the mum demonstrated the clever hack using pre-printed name tags on her kids school uniforms.
Then you simply pop it over clothing label, or wherever you want the name tag, and use a pair of straighteners to clamp it shut which secures the name tag in place.
The simple hack won over an army of fans as parents praised the mum for her ‘genius’ idea.
Many people loved how quick and easy the hair tool made the task, and couldn’t believe they hadn’t thought of it themselves.
“Whichever one of you gorgeous people suggested hair straighteners for name labels…. GENIUS!” one mum said, “all uniform done in minutes.”
