A Giant Watermelon Towel Is What Your Summer Has Been Missing — Shopping

Your Instagram feed is probably full of photos of pool floats that look like food, no? (Is that why they call it a feed?) Perhaps you've even posted a few of those pics yourself? We love an oversized slice of pizza, so we can't blame you or anyone else. In fact, we can only encourage you to keep the kitsch going with some equally cute food-themed towels for when you're on dry land.

You’ve Been Pouring Juice Wrong Your Entire Life — Life in the Kitchen

When pouring orange juice from the carton, most people intuitively put the plastic spout as close to the glass as possible. This results in the infamous glugging approach, where your juice splatters within the glass and makes a "glug glug" noise. Not cool.

Well, I'm here to tell you that if this is your approach to pouring juice out of a carton — or really any liquid from a carton — you've been doing it wrong your entire life. There's actually a better way that is splatter- and glug-free.

First and foremost, the right way to pour out of a carton is to hold the carton so the spout is on the top, further away from the rim of the drinking vessel. This results in a clean pour without any splatter or alarming noises, as showcased by YouTube personality Crazy Russian Hacker.
