THE thing we hate most about the washing up isn't having to play Tetriswhen stacking clean pots and pans on the drying rack – it's the annoying puddles of soapy water that inevitably form underneath it.
Well if you also struggle with this issue, then you might want to take notes from this savvy mum.
In a viral TikTok video, Amelia Curtis Cooper, from Perth, explained how she side-steps this common household problem by placing her drying rack INSIDE the sink.
"As if I never thought of this earlier," she wrote. "We rent so there isn't a draining board. But I love doing this!"
Showing her followers her life hack, Amelia explained how she chose a drying rack that fit her sink perfectly so any water from her clean plates would go straight down the drain.
What's more, the savvy mum says this method is much quicker than using the groves in her ceramic kitchen surfaces.
The video has racked up over 21,000 "likes" on TikTok and others couldn't believe they never thought of it before.
One replied: "Hang on… what?!"
"Thank you so much for this," another added. "Just what I needed!"
"Yes yes yes," a third gushed. "Thank you, I'm super excited to do this."
