It's only Monday night, but we bet that a lot of people are already having a sneaky glass of wine to ease themselves into the week.

The problem with wine is that it can often pose problems, like not being cold enough, being corked, or having sediment in it. Luckily, as with most things in life, there are some unusual hacks that can help you overcome these minor obstacles.

Learn these seven little hacks and you'll be sorted for life...

1. Remove any sediment or small pieces of cork by pouring the wine through a coffee filter

3. Freeze leftover red wine into cubes, so you can pop it into sauces or soups at a later date rather than having to waste it
