Edwina Bartholomew has shared a nifty hack with the Sunrise audience and it only costs $2.

The 38-year-old Channel Seven star and Matt Shirvington are currently filling in for Natalie Barr and Kochie during the holiday season on the show.

During a segment during yesterday’s morning show, Edwina revealed how she can finally reach papers on her desk due to a piece of sticky rubber hands she keeps at her desk.

“I do want to just give a shout-out to Shirvo, the other day I was complaining that I couldn’t reach the scripts for obvious reasons,” she said, pointing to her growing baby bump.

“He’s gone to Kmart and got me one of these flippy hands, so now I can.”

“It’s the most considerate thing anyone has ever done for me” she said jokingly.

“It works, right?” Shirvo responded.

Indeed, people who want to try out the hack for themselves can grab a six pack of the sticky hands from Kmart for just $2.

Edwina, who is currently pregnant with her second child, is gearing up to go on maternity leave soon.

Just the other day, she shared on the show that it was a “big news day” for her family as not only was it her husband Neil Varcoe’s birthday, but their adorable daughter Molly started daycare.

Back in August Edwina announced live on-air that she and Neil were expecting their second child together.

“In developing news, news that will be developing news, news that will be developing for the next six months, we will be having another baby,” she said on Sunrise.

She also shared that she is due in February and while they already know the sex of the baby, they’ve decided to keep it secret for now.
