YOU'VE probably used salt and pepper shakers countless times over the years and not thought twice about it.

But it turns out loads of people had no idea how you're actually supposed to use them and it's blowing their minds.

One food fan, named Cody, shared a clip to TikTok saying his ‘"mind was blown" after a waitress taught him the tricks of the trade. 

He asked: “How old were you when you learned the proper way to use a salt and pepper shaker?”

While we’ve all ended up hitting the bottom to try and get the spices out, it turns her way is so much better.
