Kiwis in quarantine are coming up with inventive hack ideas while they are stuck inside a hotel room for two weeks.
Members of the New Zealand Hotel Quarantine Facebook group have shared a "genius" way of making a toasted sandwich without a toastie maker.
Sharon Brown shared a photo of her 'homemade toastie' on the Facebook page, by pressing an iron on a paper bag or napkin with the sandwich inside.
"That's genius," one commented. "Kiwi ingenuity."
"I just spotted the hotel has a herb garden, so next time I will pick some garnish for the toastie platter," she said.
Brown said she learnt this hack from the Facebook group among other ideas.
Most hotel rooms do not have toasters or microwaves, so people have had to come up with ways to reheat their meals.
New Zealand Hotel Quarantine hacks:
Iron toasted sandwich - Press the iron on a paper bag with the sandwich inside until the cheese is melted.
Poached eggs in a ziplock bag in a boiling kettle.
Morning sleep ins = cold breakfast. Put a cardboard disposable container over the kettle with the lid open and boil to get a bit of heat back into the food.
Turn your rubbish bin into a 'washing machine' for smaller items as some hotels only have 10 item laundry allocation per person. Hang on coat hangers to dry.
If you cut the sides on the top half of the paper bags and fold them in, they make for handy storage baskets that are of good visible depth.
