Ever struggled to stop the rice going everywhere in the microwave? Look no further than this nifty hack.
We're all guilty of taking shortcuts with our cooking and one of the biggest cheats is swapping normal rice for the microwaveable time.
Yes it saves time, but there's something annoying about the fact that the packet always seems to fall over and spill rice everywhere.
Well it turns out a solution to the problem has been hiding under our noses this whole time.
Mum Hannah Falzon from London shared her genius trick to keep that packet standing in the microwave and keep the rice from spilling everywhere.
So I’ve just discovered this!! Anyone that uses microwave rice and gets pissed off that it falls down in the microwave look! Magic tabs! You’re welcome 😊Posted by Hannah Falzon on Wednesday, 2 January 2019

She said: "So I’ve just discovered this!!"
