TikTok has brought us a lot of entertainment lately. It has also taught us a thing or two that we may not have known before.
The video platform allows users to share videos of all kinds. Singing, dancing, funny content, and even educational hacks. My favorite thing to watch on TikTok are the life hacks. Some of them I already knew about, others I am discovering for the first time like so many others.
One thing in particular that I just found out about thanks to TikTok has to do with how you pour butter on movie theater popcorn. We've all been there, you get that large bag of popcorn at the movies and you pour that warm, melted butter on top of it. The butter is clearly what makes the popcorn so delicious. However, the more popcorn you eat, the less butter there is. You don't want to get up in the middle of the movie to pour more butter on the popcorn, so you suck it up. It's the one struggle of eating popcorn at the movies.
Thanks to a viral video on TikTok, your problems are solved when it comes to evenly pouring butter on your popcorn at the theater. This hack is one of those that will make you say "why didn't I think of that?!" Get ready to be mind blown...
Whenever you get ready to butter up your popcorn, grab a straw and place it as far down in the bag/bucket as you can. Then, you pour the butter into the straw and let flow. Apparently, this is a hack that quite a few people know about, but this is a new one for me!
Now, I am not sure, but I feel like if you want to evenly distribute the butter throughout the popcorn, you might want to slowly pull the straw upward so all of the butter doesn't sit at the bottom. It's definitely worth a try next time you go to the movies. Now...if only there's a hack to evenly distribute the seasoning that you can sprinkle on your popcorn. Let's work on that hack next, TikTok!

10 Other Uses for Hand Sanitizer
I discovered hand sanitizer's ability to be more than just a germ-killing product one morning while making coffee in the kitchen at work. While pouring myself a cup from a full pot, a small stream dribbled down the side of the pot and onto the white countertop. I wiped it up with a paper towel, but a light brown stain still remained. A tried a disinfectant wipe which helped a little, but you could still faintly see where the dribble had landed. Then I remembered having alcohol wipes at one point during the pandemic. They had been used up and not replaced for some time, but there was still a bottle of hand sanitizer sitting out. I squirted a little on the stain, wiped over it with a paper towel, and boom, the countertop looked brand new. This got my curious mind wondering if there was anything else I could use it for, so it was off to the internet to see what I could find. It turns out, thanks to its high concentration of ethanol or isopropyl alcohol, hand sanitizer can be used for all sorts of things.
Coffee Creamer is the Secret Ingredient
I love coffee. It's pretty much the ONLY thing that makes mornings worth getting up for. As Lorelei Gilmore once said, I think I was coffee in another life. And one thing I love to put in my coffee is fancy creamers! This might be a shock to some, but I prefer at-home brew with CoffeeMate over drive-thru lattes. Sorry but not really sorry.
Did you know that there is MORE to do with coffee creamer though than just sticking it in coffee? It's actually a secret ingredient...
6 Unique Remedies for Treating Sunburn
Chances are you have a bottle of aloe vera gel somewhere in your house that you've likely had for years ready to be applied when you've spent a little too much time out in the sun and your skin feels (and looks) like the surface of the sun. Maybe it's in a medicine cabinet or a bathroom closet. Maybe you keep it in the door of the refrigerator so it's good and cold to help ease the pain of sunburn a little quicker. While it's a great and highly recommended way to care for your skin after a sunburn, there are other options in your house that can also do the trick.
