People are only just realising they’re using plastic food containers wrong and their minds are completely blown | The Sun

IF you are someone that regularly puts their leftover food in a plastic container, prepare to be shocked.

It turns out that we’ve been using these containers all wrong – yes, you heard that correctly.

A woman has taken to TikTok to reveal her clever food container hack and people are baffled that they have only just realised this simple trick.

Known on TikTok as @crappy2happy, the savvy woman posted her container hack, racking up an impressive 1.8million views.

She said: “Hack number five – you know I had to share this with you.

“If you’re putting leftover stuff away, like cake, use the lid as the bottom.

“Then put the bottom on top.”

In the clip, we see the woman demonstrate her simple but effective hack – rather than making a mess trying to squeeze her piece of cake into the container, she instead places it on the lid.

After this, she then neatly uses the bottom of the container as the lid.

Doing this makes it much easier to remove items from containers when you go to eat them again.
