Creative Ways to Use Post-It Notes


A Post-It note can serve as more than just a reminder. These small, versatile sheets easily transform into multi-purpose tools — all it takes is a little creativity.

Our friends over at Good Housekeeping know a thing or two about getting creative with everyday products. This time, they’ve rounded up a list of unconventional Post-It uses. Here are a few of our favourites.

  1. Keyboard cleaners. Whether it’s dust or tiny crumbs littering your keyboard, a Post-It will do the job. Using the sticky side, blot in between keys to retrieve even the tiniest bits of dirt.
  2. How many times have you tried to unplug your mouse only to unplug the keyboard? Keep your cables organized by cutting the sticky part of a Post-It note, labeling it, and wrapping it around electrical plugs.
  3. DIY banners. Make a colourful, personalized banner for any party. Using stencils or free-hand, write one letter per Post-It and arrange on the wall. So crafty!
