WE ALL know the pain of shaking a spice jar to get the seasoning out to the point of suffering from an aching arm.
Luckily, one person has discovered a nifty hack to ensure you’re never left in this position ever again.

Taking to her TikTok account, Cheryl Hickey explained that she saw this particular trick on the social media platform and couldn’t keep it to herself any longer.
“Hi, things I saw on TikTok that I think will blow your mind,” she started the clip off, looking casual in a simple grey hoodie with her blonde mane up in a ponytail.
Showing the bottom of a jar of nutritional yeast, she said: “See these bumpies on the bottom of the spice bottle?
“There’s a reason they’re on there…”
@cherylhickey then took a second spice jar and flipped them both upside down so the bumpy parts faced each other.
“You take them,” she continued before spiralling the one on top against the other. This action released the spice in a continuous motion.
Placing the two jars down, she then leaned into the camera to ask: “Did I blow your mind?”
Viewers were quick to comment on the trick as one person wrote: “why are we not taught these things in school…….” [sic]
Another joked: “I will shake that bottle till my arm falls off before willingly make that sound”. [sic]
“Brilliant! So simple!” another shared as a fourth chimed: “I was today years old.”
A fifth commented: “Mind blown!” while another added: “Mic drop”.
But others argued that the primary use of the bumps underneath the spice jars was for traction and not to get the seasoning out easily.
“While that might work, it is not why the bumps are there!! The bumps are there for traction!!” [sic]
Another agreed, explaining: “That’s just an ancillary use. They’re primarily for traction on that countertop or other surface.” [sic]
