Want to prevent a pot from boiling over? Add THIS ingredient to the water!


This ingredient will save you a lot of time and frustration!

We love the look of a squeaky clean stove after we’ve just spent a good amount of time polishing and scrubbing it. Of course, you want to enjoy it looking spotless for a long time, but unfortunately this seems like an impossible task. You turn your back for a second after your pasta has only just started to boil, and the water has already boiled over. The result? Your stove looks gross once more.

Luckily, there’s a very easy trick!


If you love cooking (and especially if you love food), you probably already have this lying around the house. So, what do you need to stop your pots from boiling over? A small block of butter. Whatever you’re cooking, it won’t boil over if you add just a little bit of butter to it. With this trick, you’ll be able to keep your stove clean for a lot longer and it’ll save you cleaning related frustration. Plus, adding a bit of butter to your food is never a bad idea, right? It’ll only improve the taste of your dish!
