Here’s another life hack that’s going viral . . .
Someone posted a video of how to make cold butter instantly more spreadable, and it doesn’t involve heating it up. Instead of using a knife, use a handheld STRAINER.
In the video, they use one of those small strainers with tight, metal mesh. So, a “fine-mesh” strainer, not a plastic one. If you drag the bottom of it across a cold stick of butter, the butter comes through the top and collects there.
So you end up with a pile of thin strands of butter that are much easier to spread. (Mirror)
Here’s the video.)
