Picture this: You’re hard at work in the kitchen preparing your all-time favourite recipe, and you’re about to add that crucial spice only to open the spice jar and discover it’s almost empty.
Fear not as a clever kitchen hack is here to save your culinary journey. Say goodbye to wasted spices and enjoy every last drop of flavour.
Gone are the days when you had to reluctantly discard spice jars with stubborn, solid clumps of seasoning clinging to the bottom. Thanks to a resourceful mother from the United States who shared her ingenious solution on her TikTok channel, The Fara Fix, those frustrations are a thing of the past. In a matter of seconds, she unveiled a simple trick to effortlessly dislodge these pesky clumps from the glass jars.
“I have a spice hack you need to see,” Fara began the video.
“If you’re ever frustrated because your spices get stuck together and won’t come out, I’ve got the fix.
“Go ahead and take your spice jar, turn it upside down, take another spice jar and rub the bottom together.”
This method is so successful because when you spin the jars’ ridges in a circular motion, the vibrations help the spices flow out more quickly.
“This friction will cause everything to come out,” Fara said.
“Easy peasy. Like seriously, who knew?”
