In a clip shared on TikTok by @andrelifehack the foodie showed what the hole in the lid of most bottles of soy sauce is really for.
It turns out that if your hold your finger over one end of the bottle you can easily control how much sauce comes out.
Simply release your finger to allow the liquid to flow freely and apply pressure to the other end when you’ve poured enough.
The hack is perfect if you’re a bit of a clumsy home cook and always end up with a sea of soy sauce on your food.
