As a parent, you probably spend 75 percent of your awake hours searching for things your kids have misplaced, which can be especially challenging when you’re on a mad dash to make it out the door for school in the morning. One dad’s viral hairbrush hack will ensure that your kids will never leave the house with unbrushed hair again.

Fed up with never being able to find a hairbrush, dad Mike Thiessen decided to take matters into his own hands and make sure the hairbrush never left the bathroom again. As Thiessen shared in a Facebook post that has since gone viral, the simple solution to lost items is to chain them up.

Thiessen attached a metal ring to the hole at the end of the hairbrush and then linked it to a long chain which he attached to the wall with an eye hook. The clever hack received tons of positive feedback with other parents wanting a similar set up at home.

And why stop there? Just think of the possibilities. You’ll never search desperately for that TV remote or the scissors again.
