You've Been Storing Peanut Butter Wrong This Entire Time

YOU'VE BEEN LIVING A LIE! A SALTY, CREAMY, PEANUT-BUTTERY LIE!!

Picture this:

It's super late at night. You go to the kitchen, half-awake and probably anticipating a hangover.

You go to the cabinet and all you have are apples, mustard and Chinese food from God knows how long ago. You move over to the cabinet and there you see it -- a fresh jar of peanut butter.

It's a gift from the lord.

You take a few dollops. You screw the top back on. You head to the cupboard and put the jar back in the way you found it.

*BUZZER*

WRONG! YOU'RE DOING LIFE WRONG AND YOU PROBABLY DIDN'T EVEN REALIZE IT!

According to a new report from PureWow, you can't just place jars of peanut butter into the closet without making the flip-turn-upside down (and I'd like to take a minute, just sit right there).

Let me go ahead and explain why you should actually care.

PureWow explains,

[Y]ou've probably noticed that the oil has a tendency to settle on the top, and requires a hearty stir each time you uncap. Store that puppy upside down and the oils will evenly distribute all the way through, every single time.

Go forth and live your best life.
