A woman has gone viral on social media after sharing the discovery she recently made regarding the ‘correct’ way to tie a dressing gown, claiming it has ‘changed her life’
While TikTok entertains us with prank videos, jokes and amusing dance routines, we’ve also learnt a lot from it.
We’ve discovered tips and tricks to help us with all aspects of life – from finding out how clean our hotel room really is to creating a ‘heavenly’ McDonald’s dessert by hacking the menu.
And now another clip has taught us something new – and quite frankly, it’s a game-changer if you wear a dressing gown regularly.
A TikTok user named Emma, who posts under the username @emmaflicc_ has shared a discovery she recently made about the ‘correct’ method for doing up a dressing gown.
In her video, she said: “I feel like I’ve lived the last 28 and a half years of my life in some sort of f***ed up simulation because I was watching a video of this guy talking about how if you wrap your dressing gown like this, you’ve actually been doing it wrong.”
Emma then demonstrates how most of us would normally tie a dressing gown, with the belt going all the way round through the loops and then tied at the front.
She continues to say that she couldn’t think of another way to tie it, but pointed out that this method does always result in the belt loosening eventually and the dressing gown coming undone.
This is where the hack comes in handy.
“Well he said, what you have to do instead is put it at the front, wrap it and then tie it like this and let me tell you, this has changed my life.
“What other life hacks have I missed out on?”
The video has since gone viral, being watched over 244,000 times and garnering more than 20,000 likes.
Dozens of people also took the time to reply and share their thoughts, with one writing: “Why do shops display them with the tie wrapping around them then?? They could be saving us all if they displayed it properly!”
Another replied: “Discovered this a few weeks ago and wow, why have we not been doing this forever?”
A third added: “Game changer!!!”
