You've been using your kitchen roll holder all wrong, mum reveals hack that makes tearing them so much easier

PREPARE to feel like you’ve been dispensing paper towel wrong for your entire life.

A US woman has revealed what you’re actually meant to use the holder for, leaving her followers’ minds “blown”.

TikToker LeeAnn Larsen shared the 15-second clip over the weekend, starting with another user’s video questioning the use of the paper towel holder’s metal arches.

“Why do I feel like this should have a function? I’ve spent 30 minutes – why is this here?” the woman in the first part of the clip asks, moving a piece of paper towel around the bits of wire.

The video then transitions to show LeeAnn with a similar holder, fitting a piece of towel between the two arches and then using them to neatly tear it from the roll.

Her footage of the hack swiftly drummed up close to 300k likes and more than 2500 comments, with hundreds of users remarking it was “mind blowing”.

“I can’t even find the words to explain how much my mind is blown,” one viewer wrote, while another said, “Yeah, I don’t think I’m doing anything right anymore.”

“ … I was today years old when …” joked another, to which one user responded, “Just feel proud you found out before you broke it off. Like my husband.”

“I thought this was for the square napkins,” one viewer wrote, referring to the arches.

“So that actually had a function. Huh,” said another.

But some viewers were less surprised – writing that paper towel holders “literally look like a paperclip, take a hint”.
