A TikTok star has gone viral after showing his followers why they should never keep glasses upside down in their closets or shelves.

In a video that has garnered a staggering 3.6 million views and 128,000 likes so far, user @Bs.hidden.secrets has divided the internet with his latest kitchen hack.

According to the popular TikToker, which has a following of more than 76,000 people, storing jars upside down means all of the weight is carried by the rim – which they describe as the “most fragile part” of the jar.

“Over time, the glass is more likely to break,” they explain.

Some echoed the TikTok star’s advice, with one person saying it’s “disgusting to keep the part you drink from on the surface” because it collects dust.

However, the majority of users criticized the video, joking that you just need to buy “stronger” glasses.

One user wrote: “I’ve always kept them upside down. [I’ve] NEVER had a problem”.

“I’ve never had a broken glass in 50 years,” wrote another person.

“I store them upside down to prevent dust from building up in the jar… They break, you buy more,” added a third.

Culinary Producer Klara Langan told marthastewart.com that there’s no “wrong way” to arrange your glasses, with different methods to suit different people’s kitchens.

However, the home cooking expert recommends “storing less-used cups with the rim down to avoid dust accumulation”.

When it comes to more delicate special occasion glassware like champagne flutes or wine glasses, Langan says it’s “usually safer” to store them upright.

She adds : “If you’re worried about the dust problem with long-term storage or open shelving (think bar carts), carefully store them edge-down.”

When it comes to thicker tumbler-style glasses – Langan says it’s safe to stack them on top of each other – which can also help prevent dust and save space.
