The chore that everyone tries to avoid is washing up, but with household bills soaring we are more reluctant to turn on the dishwasher.
A mother in the UK has come up with a controversial way to avoid having to do the dishes – by feeding her family aluminum foil with their hands. Photos depicting her MacGyver-style life hack are currently blowing minds online as viewers wonder if her shortcut really pays off.
“They really enjoyed it. It was something fun,” Rebecca Cubberly, 28, told Kennedy News. She concocted the shortcut to save time and money while cleaning up after meals for her husband Karl, 30, and two children Jack, six, and Evie, four.
“Normally you have five bowls and a washing pan and we didn’t even use cutlery.” Cubberly gushed. “They ate every last morsel, there was nothing left, so I just had to pick up the foil.”
She added: “I didn’t use the dishwasher and only a little water for the cutting board.”
“We’ll 100 percent be doing it again, we’ll be trying it with lots of different things like pizza and plowman’s or when we have a picky tea or when I’m just not in the mood to wash up.”
After sharing a snap of her unique dinner table set up on social media, Cubberly says she received a few comments from people who saw the pros and cons.
And despite some pointing out that she’s creating waste, the mom said she recycles the tin foil and the preparation is also fairly minimal.
And you, what do you think of this idea?
