We wish that there was a hack that could help us through this nightmarish experience. Whether you are cooking some hamburgers or some steak, this grease leaves behind more mess than we know what to do with. Sure, you can pour it down the sink, and that works okay. Wouldn’t you like a method that isn’t quite as risky, though?

They thank the Loft Boutique for passing the hack along and we are grateful to them as well. Let’s say that you want to use the grease for a different purpose, though. Did you know that it can be utilized as a weed killer? All you need to do is pour the grease in areas where you do not want the weeds to grow.

When it comes to pouring the grease down the drain, you have no more excuses, and there’s no need to keep using this outdated disposal method. Your days of putting your drain in danger are now over.
