Readers offer their best tips for adding Evernote integration to Feedly, keeping your T-shirts unfaded, and quickly counting just about anything with your computer.
Every day we receive boatloads of great reader tips in our inbox, but for various reasons—maybe they’re a bit too niche, maybe we couldn’t find a good way to present it, or maybe we just couldn’t fit it in—the tip didn’t make the front page. From the Tips Box is where we round up some of our favorites for your buffet-style consumption. Got a tip of your own to share? Add it in the comments, email it to tips at lifehacker.com, or share it over at our user-run blog, Hackerspace.
Add Evernote Integration to Feedly for Free
Chris sends Feedly articles to Evernote without paying for Pro:
Currently Feedly does not have direct Evernote integration. It announced that one step Evernote integration would be made available in its premium featured pro version costing 5 dollars a month, apart from some other perks.
If Evernote integration is the only feature you want from Feedly, no need to go for the pro version. The basic version of Feedly supports email forwarding!
Go to Feedly settings on your phone and configure the “Mail CC” value as your Evernote unique email ID.
Once this is done, each time you wish to send an article from Feedly to Evernote, just click on the mail icon. The To column would remain blank, but the CC column would be holding your Evernote email ID by default. Just click send, and the post is forwarded into Evernote.
Wash T-Shirt Inside-Out to Avoid Fading
Gabriel keeps his T-shirts in tip top shape:
I own a lot of graphic T-shirts which would always fade after a year or so so they looked really old. After a little research, I discovered you can preserve them much longer by turning them inside-out before you wash (and washing with cold water, obviously). It’s helped a lot of my T-shirts survive much longer.

Turn Your Computer’s Calculator Into a Simple Counter
Lowell shares a clever use for his PC’s calculator:
I discovered something interesting recently: you can use the calculator on Windows and OS X as a digital “click counter.” Plug in 1+1, then just hit Enter to make the count go up by one each time.
I just used it on this list of wedding guests… so easy and helpful.
Make Headings in Kinja with a Keyboard Shortcut
Our own Adam Dachis discovers a hidden shortcut in Kinja, our new blogging and comment system, which I wrote up over at Hackerspace:
Hey everyone! Really quick tip that Dachis discovered this week. If you want to add a subhead to your post in Kinja, you don’t have to add the HTML manually: just press Ctrl+1, Ctrl+2, or Ctrl+3.
Ctrl+1 (or Command+1 if you’re on a Mac) makes the text H1 sized, Ctrl+2 does H2, and so on. So you can make:
Medium subheads (h3)
All the way down to small subheads (h6)
…and everything in between. Over at Lifehacker we usually use H3s and H4s exclusively.
It’s useful if you’re doing your own blog post (like our new How You Work series) or just writing a really long comment.
