10 NSFW Life Hacks Every Girl Has To Know Now

When you read an article about life hacks, it’s usually tips on how to use a spoon to get the perfect eyeliner wing, or how to make your bedroom look clean even if it’s a total mess. Don’t get me wrong, these articles and tips are great. I love learning clever little beauty tricks and saving money because I’m using items in my house more than I thought I could.

As females, we’ve got more going on than just makeup woes and organization struggles – we need more help than ever when it comes to periods, vaginal discharge, and more. We need NSFW life hacks!

Luckily, the Internet is *blessed* with Reddit threads, where users aren’t afraid to discuss exactly that – tips for girls that aren’t going to be slapped on a pretty picture and shared 10K times any time soon. Whether you want to know how to get annoying stains out of your underwear or how to have sex on top, we’ve got you covered. Share these with your fellow ladies to help a girl out – even if they act like they don’t need them, they definitely do. Check out these NSFW hacks that will change your life: 


Soak Underwear In OxiClean

I don't care what anyone says, period stains happen to all of us. It doesn't matter how careful you are or how much protection you're using or how light or heavy it is - at some point during that week of blood, it will get on your underwear. So, how do you get it out? User WooglyOogly suggests, "OxiClean will remove a lot of old blood stains. Every now and then I'll collect all my stained underpants and soak them for a few days in OxiClean and cold water. It's removed years-old stains from my clothes and cloth pads." I've also heard that it's great for removing discharge stains as well!

Stop Period Leaks With Toilet Paper

Or maybe you want to attempt to avoid the stains altogether, especially when you're sleeping, which is arguably the easiest time to get blood stains. Follow user cheechsfeist's advice: "This is gross, but you know how when you're sleeping, and the blood seems to run into your butt-crack, ruining your underwear? Well, if you jam a wadded up piece of toilet paper between your butt-cheeks, you won't have to deal with that anymore. It's not that comfortable, but neither is leakage."

Move Your Tampon String When Peeing

One of the worst feelings ever is leaving a tampon in while peeing, then getting the string wet so that it makes your underwear wet and uncomfortable. Ugh! Want to avoid it? User msstark says, "Need to pee with a fresh tampon in? Reach from the back or side and hold the string away while you do it, this way the string won't be soaked with pee." You can also just tuck the string up once the tampon is in place!

Move Back and Forth On Top

Let's be honest: having sex girl-on-top isn't a position that comes naturally to a lot of women. If you're struggling with it, user ffreudiannipss has a tip: "When you're on top, back and forth at an angle is a whoooooole lot better than up and down for some people."

Use Baking Soda For Discharge Stains

Dischage stains are just as, if not more, annoying than period blood stains. And we all get them, so please don't try to lie and say you don't. Getting rid of them can be tough, since your vag is acidic and discharge basically bleaches the fabric, but user TheThingsIThink has an idea: "can't cha keep a bottle with some baking soda and water handy and just spray the panties as you take it off to defeat the acid? I hit the collars and pits of my dress shirts/undershirts with oxiclean right when I get home and it helps them last." Worth a try!

Use A Pore Strip To Make Peach Fuzz Disappear

Facial hair can be frustrating when it becomes super visible - a lot of women deal with faint "mustache" hairs that drive them crazy. Unfortunately, removing that hair is kind of expensive and painful, since you can't shave it. Want to get rid of it on your own? User Vanah_Grace says, "So I was pore stripping my nose as usual and decided to cut one up and use it on the lower crease of nose, basically where my ladystache is. When I ripped it off I noticed a significant amount of hair in it. Bingo!! I decided to put a few small pieces above my top lip, let dry, then one quick rip and voila!!! A box of 8 strips cost me $6.49 at Target today, and I figure that'll last me well over a month. I'm quite excited as waxing is not cheap and the older I get the more my peach fuzz thickens. Hope some of you ladies find this useful!!" Just don't leave the strip on for too long so you don't irritate the area!

Use Cold Water On Period Blood Stains

One more period blood stain tip: user Thesnowbelow suggests, "Always wash period blood in cold water and for bad/fresh stains you can use a bit of peroxide to lift."

Get Rid Of Constipation With Your Finger

Feeling constipated can suck so, so much. Instead of taking a pill or calling a doctor or just suffering through it, try fixing it on your own. User Ember357 says, "When constipated. Slide your thumb up your hoo-hoo and give a little push towards your anus. Be sure to wash your hands after." Hey, sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do!

Use Baby Oil To Shave Down There

Shaving your pubes can be annoying, since the hairs are typically more coarse and close together. Want a silky smooth shave? Try this tip from user KaylKitten: "Use baby oil for shaving pubic hair. First go with the grain, then sideways to it, then against it. Learned from AW. Literally changed my life."

Use Coconut Oil As Lube

Coconut oil, the miracle product, even works down there. User bubblesugarsocks says, "You need to be sure you're not allergic to it first, but I like coconut oil as lube. I feel less gross than when we use synthetic ones." Just please don't use this with a condom as it can break down the material and make it less effective!
