This Viral Peanut Butter Jar Hack Solves the "Last Bit" Problem

Part of the joy of keeping an organized pantry or fridge is keeping your food stock at ideal levels. Meaning, you don't have a sad family of 75% used-up staples that stay untouched because you couldn't bother and just bought a new one. (The waste!)

One of the biggest pantry annoyances? Peanut butter jars that clearly have enough in them for a few more sandwiches, but the stuff is spread out all over, making it tough to get a clean scoop. Seeing as TikTok has become a source of modern household wizardry, it comes as no surprise that a peanut butter jar hack has gone viral on the platform. As user @shopsplat demonstrates, all you need to do is spin the jar several times on a flat surface. The centrifugal force pushes the peanut butter to the top of the jar, making it look almost brand new. (We'd imagine that the results vary a bit based on the temperature of your PB as well as the make.) Still ... we'll definitely be trying this on our next frustrating jar of peanut butter.
