At this point, it feels like every other day we’re being told we’re doing something wrong.
And in case there wasn’t enough on this list, we’ve now got another thing to add to it – and it’s all to do with ice cube bags.
A woman has blown people’s minds after sharing the ‘correct’ way to open ice cube bags and it seems we all may have been doing it wrong for years.
Video of the trick being demonstrated was first shared on social media back in 2019 and has recently gone viral again when it was posted to TikTok.
The original clip was uploaded to the Facebook page NETfixe and instead of carefully prising each individual ice cube out from the bag, the woman manages to get all of the ice cubes out at once.
To remove the ice, the woman simply stretches the bag horizontally and vertically.
This causes the segments in the bag to transform into a sack, so all the ice cubes fall into the bottom at once.
The woman is then able to pour the ice out, or easily grab however many cubes she requires.
Many people were stunned to discover this quick and easy technique for removing ice and praised the Facebook page for sharing the video.
However, some pointed out that this isn’t really new information as “it tells you on the box” to do it this way, but it seems many people still didn’t know about it.
One person said: “OMG this must be the best Christmas gift this year. I’ve been freezing my fingers off for years!”
“Brilliant, I wish I had known that before,” replied someone else.
A third wrote: “I’ve been doing that wrong for years… need to buy some more ice cube bags!”
“Aww ffs, I tear these out one by one and almost half ends up on the floor. My day is made,” added a fourth.
Others were eager to point out that this method is only useful if you intended to use all of the ice in one go.
They explained: “We have not been doing it wrong, putting them all together is wrong unless you plan to use them all straight away.
“If you put them back in the freezer like that they will freeze together and also gather frost, the bag keeps them separate for that reason.”
Regardless of this, it’s certainly something to store away for future reference – you never know when these sort of tips and tricks might come in handy!
