Do you like to eat on the go? To open a ketchup packet without making a mess, try this brilliant hack.
It should come as no surprise that we enjoy fast food: McDonald’s, Dairy Queen, Chick-fil-A, Taco Bell, and so on.

It’s super convenient to have on hand while we’re out and about, whether we’re running errands on the weekend or returning home after a long day. Yes, we enjoy having the time to prepare a home-cooked meal, but there are times when convenience takes precedence.

As a result, when we’re eating in the car, we need to make the process as simple as possible. And we’ve got the ideal fast-food hack for you.

What is the best way to open a ketchup packet?
We’re all familiar with the ketchup packets that come with fast food meals: the small plastic bags that we tear open and squeeze the hell out of. Our burger wrapper occasionally gets ketchup on it. It occasionally finds its way into the open box of chicken nuggets. It sometimes covers the fries, and other times it covers us!

We won’t have to worry about that anymore thanks to TikTok user @cookiterica’s brilliant hack. Don’t tear off a small corner and squeeze your ketchup packet when you’re ready to open it. Instead, rip one side of the edge all the way down.

You’ll have a large opening, perfect for mess-free dipping (the kids will love this).
