This woman has been praised online for sharing the simple hack she learned from former MasterChef Australia judge Matt Prestons.

The hack is simple and shows you just how dirty the wooden spoons you use for cooking actually are!

"This one is going into the bin," she wrote on Facebook. "A tip I learned from Matt Preston years ago. Does anyone soak their wooden spoons in boiling water?"

"Mine always go into the dishwasher every night but that doesn't stop what gets absorbed. Revolting really."

It didn't take long for a huge response to come flooding in...

"Omg, I’m going to go do this to my spoons right now," one person wrote.

“Until this post I never thought to do this. I wash them in boiling hot water when they are used and never had any issues," added another.

In an interview with Delicious in 2016, Matt Preston suggested opting for a silicone spoon instead.

"They're hygienic, heat-resistant and flexible, so they are great for getting into the corner of a pan or getting every last skerrick out of a bowl,"

Give this hack a go at home and see what the results are like!
