Pick Up Broken Glass With A Piece Of Bread

You may think you’ve mastered carrying five things at once, but when the day comes you drop that glass bowl on the floor, Reddit user norwegiancharm has a tip for cleaning up the mess.

If you break a glass, use a piece of bread to sponge the area where the pieces shattered. It picks up the smaller slivers of glass better than anything else I’ve tried so far.

Redditor akatherder offers an even better suggestion:

Put it somewhere safe. I usually take another piece of bread with some sort of “adhesive” like peanut butter and put it on the glassy piece of bread to keep the glass particles from falling out. Then put it in a plastic bag to catch any stragglers that do slip away.

Just make sure nobody mistakes it for a peanut butter sandwich.
