If you answered every day, then you must know about this. Did you know that some dishwasher racks are actually adjustable? Oh, yes, that's right. A woman posted about this on TikTok and blew everybody's mind.

I honestly don't know how this lady discovered that her dishwasher had adjustable racks.

Maybe it was purely by accident, or maybe, she actually read the manual. Do people read that stuff? I usually just put it in a drawer, ha, ha!

Okay, so here's how it works.

You see, there should be something on the side of your dishwasher rack. It looks like a plastic piece. But in reality, it's actually a lever of some sort. You pull on it, and the entire rack comes down.

Um, what? Again, did you know about that?

So, why would you even need to adjust your dishwasher rack? Well, if you ever tried fitting wine glasses in there, you definitely need this feature. Once you push the rack down, they'll fit like a glove.

As it turns out, not many people know about this dishwasher phenomenon ha, ha!

A lot of people online were blown away by this discovery. I have to admit, I didn't know about this either. I guess you learn something new every day.

Some people even bolted as soon as they found out to check their own dishwasher.

I don't blame them. Something like this definitely comes in handy. This one lady even thought she broke her dishwasher when she adjusted the racks accidentally, hee-hee.

Well, I hate to say this but I guess it does pay off to read the manual from time to time, huh?

Who's got time for that? I definitely don't. But that's why you have TikTok to find out about stuff like that. Am I right?

There is one thing you need to keep in mind.

If you do this, you won't be able to clean all your dishes at the same time. So, you have to pick one thing or the other. But I still think it's a cool feature.

This could be the first time people are actually excited to do dishes, ha, ha.

I know this lady seems that way. Heck, I would be excited if I discovered this too. How about you? But first thing's first, I need to get a dishwasher, lol.

See, what I told you?

Folks like me, who don't own a dishwasher, now feel left out. Oh well, I guess I'm going to have to save this tip for when I do, get one. Until then, I'll share it with my friends and family.

I'm first to admit that I was annoyed with TikTok when I heard about it.

But now that I see so many #lifehacks, it's starting to really grow on me. In fact, I have a hack I'm planning on sharing with people soon.

On the other hand, it may be annoying to find out you've been doing stuff wrong all your life.

But I say it's never too late to learn something new. That's my motto in life. How about you?

At least this dishwasher hack is going to save you some precious cash.

From now on, you won't be breaking any tall glasses, ha, ha. And that's worth celebrating in my book. I bet this lady is glad she found out about it too.

Fess up, did you know about this dishwasher feature?

Or did a light bulb just go off in your head? Ha, ha! Don't feel bad. As you can see, you're not the only one who had no idea about this feature, either.
