CHEESE graters are notoriously difficult to clean – bits of sponge get ripped off by the blades, tiny pieces of food get lodged in the holes, and you always have to watch your fingers.
But Tiktok user @kanisrezepte has found a way for you to grate to your heart’s content without the annoying wash-up ordeal.
In the video, which has over 3 million views, the hack clearly shows that you can use a cheese grater while keeping it perfectly clean.
All you need to do is grab a sturdy zip-lock bag and place it on top of your grater.
Then, when you run your food along the plastic-covered utensil, the blades will be prominent enough to cut the food without actually touching the grater itself.
This way, you get the same end-result, but your grater doesn’t need to be washed afterwards.
Using a piece of garlic, the Tiktok user demonstrates that this hack works perfectly.
One commenter wrote that the hack was “smart”.
A woman asked if the hack would make holes in the zip-lock bag, but the creator of the video assured her that it wouldn’t.
Though the hack is definitely a time-saver, some commenters say it’s wasteful and lazy.
“Stop wasting plastic wtf worst hack ever”, wrote one annoyed viewer, while another exclaimed: “Stop wasting plastic and just wash your s***.”
Another added: “Brainless.”
“Y’all really that lazy you don’t wanna wash dishes”, wrote another critical viewer.
