Man creates hack to get all the mayo or peanut butter out of a jar

Remember to keep the lid on when if you try this though, or it'll get messy.

Next up in the continuing saga of TikTok life hacks is a trick for successfully getting every last bit of peanut butter out a jar and it’s really worth knowing about.

Do you ever find it infuriating when you just can’t seem to get all the peanut butter out from a jar, no matter how hard you scrape around?

It’s not a problem that’s exclusive to just peanut butter of course – mayonnaise, Nutella, jam and marmalade are all the same. In fact, it’s pretty much just anything in a jar and as well as it being something that just ‘get’s on your nerves’, in a society that’s becoming increasingly more focused on reducing consumer waste, it can also be frustrating that so much product inside a jar goes unused because you can’t effectively remove it.

This TikTok life hack is about to change all of that though.

TikToker user @equivocal_intuition recently shared a video that showed him making old jars of peanut butter, mayonnaise and salsa look like new again by simply spinning the jars on the floor. The results show the products inside the jars all whipped up and looking fresh once again.


Remember to keep the lid on when you do this of course – it’ll get messy if you don’t.

The video has racked up over 16K views, nearly 800 likes and plenty of impressed comments too since posting.


Why does it work then?

To be honest, we have no idea and we haven’t looked up the science behind it either, but for some reason, it just does. It’s better not to question, or put too much thought into TikTok life hacks anymore, because who knows how these people figure some of these things out.

All we know is, knowing this’ll probably make life that little bit easier for you when you’re next scraping to get that last little bit out a jar.

You’re welcome.
