But if you tend to spill and splatter the water when filling an ice cube tray, you're not alone. There's also a video to help you fill them properly. Check it out below:

One person replied to the video: "oh man. I'm 33 and had no clue".

"Pity myself for past years...", commented another user.

Somebody else said: "right now i dont even know if im breathing right".

"Why don't they teach that in school", said someone else in the comments.
