Mom Shares Simple Hack To Keep Cheese From Going Bad

Do you love cheese? I do, too. We usually buy a block that lasts us at least a few weeks, but don't you get annoyed when your favorite cheese starts to mold before you can finish it? Ugh! What a travesty! Isn't it?

What if I told you this one mom came up with a cool hack to make sure her cheese lasts longer in the fridge? Let's take a look.

This smart lady shared her cheese tip as part of a recent slew of videos taking over TikTok.

Another user called upon folks to share their so-called life hacks that have since become “an unconscious standard practice" in their lives.

Apparently, once this lady learned of the trick, she hasn't looked back.

What I like about it is that it's actually pretty simple to accomplish. I'm quite surprised that I haven't thought of it myself, ha, ha! Oh well, that's what TikTok is for, right?

Okay, let's get to the details.

Shall we? First, this mom cut a piece of the block of cheese straight through the packaging. Then, she took out a chunk of cheese and removed it from the plastic wrap.

Next, she attached that empty plastic end to the rest of the cheese pack.

Basically, the idea is that this will essentially seal the cheese back up without the need for a Ziploc bag. Voilà! How do you like that?

Honestly, it's just as simple as that.

You don't have to look for a large Ziploc bag to put the rest of the cheese in, huh? Who knew that could actually do as good of a job? I certainly didn't think of it.

People on TikTok lost their minds over this easy and useful life hack.

Many of them commented that it was so simple that it made them mad, ha, ha! And others couldn't believe that they haven't thought of it themselves.

However, some questioned the efficiency of doing it that way.

I mean, does it really seal the cheese package? One has to wonder about that. Am I right? But according to this lady, it works like a charm. You could put an elastic on it to be extra vigilant.

Originally, when quite a few people saw the video on TikTok, they thought this lady was using a package of spaghetti and not cheese at all.

Hmm? I have no idea what prompted them to think so, but okay, ha, ha!

It must be a Canadian thing or something like that.

I immediately recognized the cheese package she was holding ha, ha! We often buy the same brand for our household. I just stick it in a Ziploc bag and call it a day.

People were also shocked that the cheese came in a package as big as this?

Apparently, it's not that common if you don't live in Canada after all. Ha, ha! I guess we must count ourselves very lucky here indeed.

And some folks already knew of this hack.

In fact, they have been doing it for a long time. How is it that nobody told me about it? I feel so left out, ha, ha! I didn't know this was a "thing."

Others simply laughed admitting that they will never have an original idea thanks to TikTok.

I have to say I feel the same way sometimes too. It's like, why haven't I thought of this before? Am I right?

One mystery does remain: what happened to the brick she cut off?

Well, she actually ate it. Mystery solved, people. So you don't have to worry about sticking it back into the package. Just eat it already and move on.

Okay, be honest: Did you know about this hack, or did you learn about it on TikTok like me?

I can't be the only one who hasn't heard of it, huh? I like to think of myself as pretty crafty after all.
