An Australian woman became an Internet sensation after discovering a "life hack" to better use chopsticks.

She posted her simple trick online, and it soon went viral. The trick involves snapping the wooden tab off the end of a pair of chopsticks instead of separating the sticks from the middle. 

Then, use the tab as a rest for the chopsticks in between bites, to avoid placing them on the table.

After posting the "hack" online, it quickly spread among social media users and ultimately went viral.

"This is the same feeling I got when I discovered the noodle boxes fold out into bowls," one user tweeted about the moment they learned of the trick.

The Huffington Post later wrote a follow-up about the trick, saying that several attempts to snap the sticks in the right place failed, and they instead snapped in the middle.
