TikTok hacks can be hit or miss. Sometimes, they seem to solve problems that don’t exist at all, while other times they can give you a new appreciation for the world around you, and this is one of those.

First, though, ask yourself this question: How many times do you have to shake a trash bag to get it to unfurl? Two? Three? Just a few more for good measure? The actual answer is: none.

And thanks to TikTok, the right way to handle trash bags has gone viral.

This trash bag hack is living proof since the overall idea of placing trash bags into a trash can is pretty simple. Prepare for your mind to be blown!

We can all agree that not much thought goes into placing a trash bag into a trash can. You remove it from the packaging, shake it out, and carefully place it taut around the edge of the can and push it in on the inside. However, it turns out we’ve all been handling our trash bags wrong the whole time.

According to TikToker StoredSimply, there has been an easier way to place our trash bags in the can all along. As she demonstrated how we all normally place trash cans in the can, she explained that it’s wrong because of how the trash bag is initially placed in its packaging.

“The seam is inside out,” she explains on TikTok. “So you have to put it on like a hat,” when placing it on your trash can.

So, you can kiss the days of the shakeout goodbye. Start by opening up the bag. Place the open trash bag around the top of the trash can. Once it’s taut, simply push it inside of the trash bag to make room for your garbage.

As a result, this flips your trash bag right-side-out and avoids all the noise. One word: genius!

As you can imagine, social media is amazed by the new development. After all, everyone loves a good life hack. Many people are anticipating the next time they have to stick a new trash bag into their trash can so they can try the hack just to see if it works.

Naturally, the news of the trash bag hack is spreading like wildfire. Many social media users have shared that they’ve tried it on their own and have given their seal of approval.

“I am off to check my bin now,” a woman said.

“I did the exact same thing when my sister showed me. My brain exploded,” another woman wrote.

“I was excited when I found the hole, too,” another said.

“I thought it was there to let the air out so the bag would sit right. This makes more sense,” said another.
