To his surprise, there were quite a few life hacks that ended up working out successfully, such as cleaning dirty shoes with toothpaste, although for the most part the majority of the ‘life hacks’ were quite difficult to pull off.

It is possible that some of the life hacks he took inspiration from could have been faked or exaggerated by the creators in an attempt to go viral, however, the ones that actually worked out for Preston were quite impressive.
