TikTok user shows us we’ve been filling ice cube trays wrong our entire lives

Over the summer months, ice cube trays are in demand more than ever.

From a refreshing G&T at a barbecue to a glass of chilled whisky in the garden – ice is a summer staple.

But a TikTok user has left people utterly stunned, after revealing the correct way to fill an ice cube tray.

When it comes to filling the pesky plastic containers, most people find themselves battling with the water as they try to collect it evenly into the cubes, whilst also avoiding splash-back from the tap.

Well, apparently this is a fool’s technique.

User @4jmjcbitxh explains that the little flat areas in-between the ice moulds are actually incredibly important.

In the video, she says: ‘Am I just dumb or did nobody else know this either?

‘These little flat spots on ice cube trays are where you’re meant to fill in the water.’

She holds the flat area directly under the water flowing from the tap and shows how it equally fills up sections of four.

The video has now received more than 467,000 likes and has, naturally, left people astonished.

One person commented: ‘I was today years old when I learned this.’

Another shocked follower replied: What da heck?! This is revolutionary.’

Someone else simply said: ‘THIS JUST CHANGED MY LIFE.’

While another joked: ‘I pay $30k a year for college, yet I learn so much more from TikTok.’

But it seems the ice cube trick isn’t the only household hack getting attention on TikTok.

Last month, a woman revealed a simple hack for getting all the juice out of lemon, which requires a kitchen skewer.

Similarly, another user demonstrated how salty water can be used to get bugs and worms out of fruit, before eating it.
