     Moms’ favorite form of self-care is catching up on their favorite shows and K-dramas, but with everything they need to do at home, sometimes they can only do it at night when the little ones are fast asleep. If only there was a way to multitask, right? Moms are great at that, after all.

    Well, we found a hack that might just solve the problem. On the Facebook group, Home Buddies, a user named “Ate Re” shared how she’s able to watch her favorite Netflix shows while doing the dishes at the same time: a DIY rack that she attached to her kitchen backsplash!

    “I only have little time for leisure since I run a business and have a day job. Wala rin akong helper at medyo madami nang hugasin so I’ve learned to incorporate work and life talaga,” Ate Re tells SmartParenting.com.ph in a quick chat via Messenger.

    “So, I was there, engrossed sa isang series but pressured to clean the kitchen. Since I’m already using Bluetooth earpods, I can leave the phone anywhere, but I needed to place it somewhere na comfy ako to watch.

    “Perfect timing talaga ‘yung Shopee delivery kasi I ordered a bunch of hooks and racks and I had just finished installing ‘yung sponge rack when the idea came in,” she explains.

    The rack is made of stainless steel and Re assures that the adhesive is quite strong. “Kumapit talaga siya sa tiles ng kusina and I made sure walang dust sa pagkakabitan. Now I got myself a mini TV in the sink — problem solved!”

    In the comments section, other members thanked Re for the genius hack. “Pampagana mag-hugas!” read one comment.

    Others tagged their hubbies, saying “pwede nang magbabad sa hugasan.” One user even said it can work in the toilet, too. LOL!
