We were today years old when we discovered a better way to use salt and pepper shakers – and our minds are blown.
Social media has become an incredible tool. Not only are users able to connect with people around the world, make a living out of it, and even use it to stand up for injustice – but it’s also given us the opportunity to learn valuable house hacks.
One woman has social media buzzing after she revealed the ‘correct’ way to use salt and pepper shakers – and we’ve got the scoop!
TikTok user @Cody.93 uploaded a video asking viewers: "How old were you when you learned the proper way to use a salt and pepper shaker?"
Social media is abuzz with impressed fans geeking out over the technique.
It’s not a coincidence that many of the glass salt and pepper shakers one finds at restaurants or even inside their very own home come with ridges around the base of the glass. In a video, the TikTok user (who appears to be working at a restaurant) shows viewers how one can use these ridges to their advantage.
The woman holds the pepper upside down and starts running the ridges on the bottom of the salt shaker around the ridges on the pepper. The vibrations from the motion cause the pepper to pour out of the shaker in a smooth, consistent stream.
Cody explains in the video that the ridges were initially designed to "combat condensation" and stop the shakers from sliding on the table, but it's also helped create an even flow of spice flowing out of the shaker.
As the video gains momentum on social media, viewers are gobsmacked with the impressive technique. “Why do they design these things but never tell us how to use them or that they exist,” one user commented on the video. A second added: "Excuse me!? And why does it sound so good."
A third joked: "The ridges are also on wine bottles. You know what to do."
