Aside from the small possibility that couch goblins suck your socks up into another realm, most things that go missing seem to end up kicked under the couch.
Needless to say, the infuriating search for lost items through a film of dust and possibly years old lollies is not ideal.
But with this pool noodle hack posted on a Kmart Hacks Facebook group will ensure that you never lose anything under the couch again.
The trick is simple - you just place the pool noodle against the legs of the couch to ensure nothing sneaks in underneath.
Any wandering items will simply stay against the pool noodle instead of slipping under the couch.
TV remotes and stray socks are saved!
