Grandma Shares the Life Hack You Didn't Know You Needed

( – The older we get, the more experience we gain under our belts. There’s no doubt that, throughout all those years, you pick up on a few tricks here and there. Thankfully, one grandma is sharing her life hacks and making our lives easier.

In a TikTok video that’s amassed more than three million views, a grandma of eight, known as “Babs,” shares a hack sure to change your life; that is, as long as you have a dishwasher. In the video, she explains that it’s frustrating to open the dishwasher after a cycle ends and the dishes are still soaking wet.

She goes on to explain that rather than hand drying these dishes to put them away, you can simply place a dish towel half-in and half-out of the dishwasher and close the door. She claims that if you do this and wait five minutes, the dishes will be dry and ready to put away.

Babs has plenty of additional hacks to make life easier. This one could come in handy when you’re using certain recipes:

Sometimes, recipes call for softened butter, but it’s typically solid unless you leave it out. Of course, you could always use the microwave, but then you risk melting it rather than just softening it. Babs’ hot glass trick, in the clip above, could be the solution.

People like Babs have plenty of experience under their belts, and it’s not a bad idea to listen to the wisdom they’ve gained through their years of experience. If they’re willing to share, we should be willing to listen.
