If there’s anything we can do to make our lives easier, we welcome it with open arms. But did you know that a lot of the life hacks we see online come from our friends from Asia? That shouldn’t come as a surprise, seeing as how the residents of the continent have been spending centuries on finding ways to improve everyday issues. We thought it’d be pretty neat if we could show you some of the handiest Asian-inspired life hacks. Check them out!
Too salty? Add a potato
With summer just around the corner, it only makes sense for us to try out different soup recipes. Perhaps you’ve been looking for the perfect broccoli or asparagus soup recipe on YouTube. We know we have! But no matter how closely we follow the instructions, over-salting our soups is still a huge problem.
Thankfully, you don’t have to water the soup down or toss it out entirely. Just peel a potato, cut it in half, and toss it into the pot. According to legend, the potato will absorb much of the saltiness. Someone, give it a try and fill us in on how well it works!
