One woman on TikTok has discovered a hack to avoid the messy overflow of water when you boil in a pot. This video currently has 2 million views at the moment, and everyone is mindblown.
She takes a paper towel, and adds a little bit of oil to it. She then takes the paper towel and wipes it around the inner rim of the pot.
She shows her results and the boiling water is under control and in the pot.
According to the lady, any oil can be used - olive, vegetable, or canola.
“Any one of them will keep the water in” she replied to comment when asked about what oil could be used.
Viewers are mindblown by this.
