TikTok is filled with weird and wonderful hacks about everyday things in our home we had no idea could be so useful.
Whether it's the right way to cut potatoes, how to dry clothes without a tumble dryer or the best way to clean greasy Tupperware without getting your hands wet, there really is something for everyone.
Case and point, that random hole in your kitchen sink. Have a look:
In the video, TikToker Kyran explains what the little known function the 'circle you have on your sink'.
Kyran continues: "If you go under your sink, you'll see it's got a little clip you can untie. Make sure you untie this and take out the metal circle like that so it leaves a hole there.
"I bet you're wondering, 'Why's that hole there, Kyran? Why is it there?' I'm about to show you right now.
"So you get a bottle and you want to fill it up with your fairy liquid. Now what you want to do is put this here, screw it in tight to keep it in place and then you just want to grab your bottle of fairy liquid, pop it at the bottom and start screwing it in and now look how easy it is to get soap on your sponge."
Well, isn't that neat?
Washing up is never an enjoyable task, and getting lugged with cleaning up after Christmas dinner is the worst. So, Kyran's hack definitely makes the most of the sink's space and minimises the risk of splashing water or squirting fairy liquid all over surrounding areas of the kitchen.
It might not be the most necessary hack, but it certainly is creative.
However, like with anything, some viewers have mixed responses to the 'best hack ever', and even suggested alternative uses for the hole nobody knew could be so versatile.
One said: "I fit kitchens and it's literally just so you can have the taps either way round."
"It's if you want the drainer on the other side," another wrote.
"I've got another life hack. Instead of doing all that, I can squeeze it directly from the bottle," one commented.
Another said: "When the hack is more long winded than the extremely simple thing it's replacing."
Someone not paying attention to the point of the video said: "That sponge needs changing."
Although, for every naysayer there were many users who praised the TikToker for his creativity, and were grateful for Kyran sharing his findings with them.
"This is amazing," a user said.
A second wrote: "Mind blown!"
A final resolved: "That's not what it's for, but it's a great idea."
Well, at least some people appreciated it.
