THERE'S nothing worse than treating your kids to a takeaway in the car, only for them to spill ketchup and milkshake everywhere.
But one clever mum has come up with an ingenious way of ensuring her kids don't make a mess when they're given a McDonald's on the go.
The hack involves using a cardboard cup holder – usually given to allow people to carry four drinks in one.
TikTok user Imatinker1031 took to the video sharing site to post a clip of her trick, which she captioned: "Makes less mess and easy clean up."
In the video, she was seen placing the chips in one cup hole, some chicken nuggets in another and half a burger in another.
A tub of tomato sauce was placed in the centre of the cup holder, with the mum giving the entire cardboard tray to her kids in the back of the car – much to their delight.
And while some people praised the mum for her hack, others were quick to point out that the cup holders are not sanitary.
"Do you know how many hands have been on that cup holder?" one person wrote, while another added, "I worked at a McDonald’s, definitely not sanitary."
Others were more complimentary, with one writing: "Wow that’s a genius idea."
"Brilliant, wish I thought of that," another person praised.
Someone else suggested using an insert on the cup holder, writing: "Great idea but I would put some napkins or coffee filters in first so that the crumbs don’t spill and it’s a bit more sanitary."
This mum-to-be has some strict rules in place – and her baby isn't even born yet.
One mum's ploy to get a day off from Elf on the Shelf left her son crying.
This child is ready to retire at 10, after making £105,000 in a month.
