Or so we thought!
A PoppinMedia video by has revealed the real technique for using your shakers has hit social media, and it’s blowing people’s minds. It seems there are tiny ridges at the bottom of your salt and pepper shakers, that when rubbed together allow for a lot more salt and pepper to flow out with minimal effort.
So if you’d like to add salt to your meal, simply tip the salt shaker upside-down and rub the bottom of it with the bottom of your pepper shaker. If you’d like more pepper, just swap it around.
The simple technique has left millions of Facebook users scratching their heads in disbelief.
‘Get outta town!!! Really???’ said one. ‘WTF!!!’ added another.
Said a third: ‘So didn’t know what!’ Said one more: ‘I. Am. Speechless!.’
Looks like we’re not alone!
