You’re cooking your pasta all wrong—my simple trick will stop the water from overflowing each time

You’re cooking your pasta all wrong—my simple trick will stop the water from overflowing each time

January 27, 2022

BOILING water is perhaps the simplest cooking method in the world.

Whether you’re making pasta, steamed veggies, or a bowl of rice, it seems pretty hard to mess this one up.


But in reality, there is one issue that constantly arises (literally) when boiling water: it tends to overflow and spill out of the pot.

One woman—TikTok’s DIY expert Chantel Mila—said there’s a simple solution to keep this from happening.

All you have to do is lay a wooden spoon across the top of the pot.

Because the wooden spoon is unable to absorb the water properly, it punctures the surface of the rising bubble, breaking the tension and causing the water to settle back down.

Chantel, who goes by @Mama_Mila_ online, offered two more hacks in the clip.

The first one involved removing the guck that your sliding doors tend to collect.

“Clean door tracks effortlessly with a microfiber cloth around a blunt knife,” she explained.

Chantel first sprayed disinfectant onto the door tracks.

She then took a butter knife, wrapped a towel around it, and proceeded to wedge the towel in those hard-to-reach slits on the tracks.

Afterwards, simply rub it down like normal to get it sparkling clean.

Her third tip taught viewers how to have a fresh-smelling kitchen.

“Simmer coffee beans and vanilla in the oven to make your home smell incredible,” she advised.

As for the temperature and time to roast the mixture: set your oven to 230 degrees and cook for about 20 minutes.

Her followers appreciated the useful tips:

“OH MY GOD I’VE BEEN TRYING TO CLEAN MY DOOR TRACKS FOR A YEAR. THAT’S BLOODY GENIUS,” one exclaimed.

“Ooooh coffee beans and vanilla sounds like bliss!” added another.

A third person offered an additional tip: “[The door tracks hack] also works for that groove around your stove top.”
