A MUM left the rest of her family flabbergasted when she used her youngest child to demonstrate how to correctly open and close the blinds.

Yasemin Brett took to TikTok to share a video in which she asked her son Connor to "open and close the blind a little bit please".

Connor dutifully obliged - pulling the back string to close it and the front string to open it.

"Jamie, can you do that as well please?" she asked her partner, who did exactly the same by pulling the back string to bring the blind down, and the front one to bring it back up.

"Right, Ollie can you do that please?" she then said, after instructing someone to get him a chair so he could reach.

When it was his turn, Ollie used the front string to bring the blind both up and down - leaving the rest of his family stunned.

"What? Sorry, what? I didn't know you could do that," Connor and Jamie exclaimed, as they rushed to try it out.

"Oh, that's actually cool, I didn't know you could do that," Connor said as he demonstrated the hack.

"I've been doing it like this to open it and this to close it," he said of using both the strings.

In the comments section, people were divided as to whether or not they knew about the opening and closing trick.

I’m a mum – my hack keeps ice cream soft in the freezer and all you’ll need is a household item

IT'S getting to that time of year again where all your kids want is a big bowl of ice cream - or a Mr Whippy.

Buying ice cream for the family from the ice cream man can feel like taking out a mortgage, and store bought ice cream can often get frost bite and be too hard to enjoy.

2Shannon shared how to stop ice cream getting frost bite and viewers were blown away by how easy it wasCredit: instagram

But those days are over, as one mum shared the easy way to keep ice cream soft.

Shannon, from the US, shared the hack on her Instagram account, At Home With Shannon, just in time for the summer holidays.

All you need is a plastic food bag - something you probably already have in your cupboard.

In the video Shannon demonstrates how to use them to keep your ice cream soft in the freezer.

She simply takes out the tubs of ice cream and puts them in the plastic bag and seals them before returning them to the freezer.

The freezer bags help keep the ice cream extra insulated as freezer burn happens when air hits frozen food.

Plus, it means no more bent spoons form trying to scoop it out when it's as hard as a rock.

Shannon said: "This is such a great little trick so your ice cream does not get too hard or freezer burnt!! So SIMPLE! "

And it seemed viewers of the video were just as impressed by how simple the hack was.

One wrote: "This is the best hack you're amazing!"

"Thank you sooooooooo much for this," added another.

A third commented: "Well that just changed my life...."

Recently, the mum has also shared a mind-blowing hack that proves we've all been peeling our oranges wrong.

She starts the video by asking viewers if they have been cutting oranges wrong for their whole lives.

Shannon then shows an easy hack to getting the most out of your orange without dealing with peeling off the skin.

She cuts the orange straight down the middle, and then proceeds to fold down the rind on all sides, pushing on the bottom to pop the fruit right out.

"It pops right out, I mean it's genius," she says in her video.
