The video starts with Liz demonstrating how the dishwasher’s sprayer can’t spin when large pans are in the draw.
After lifting the drawer the mum repeats the motion, adding the pan and spinning the water sprayer.
This time it spins freely.
And the woman’s legion of fans were suitably impressed with the hack – with thousands of them liking and commenting on the post.
‘I can’t believe it has taken me 36 years to find this out,’ one woman said.
Another woman revealed her husband wanted to get rid of her favourite plates because they were too big for the family’s dishwasher.

‘After watching your video we tried it and now they fit,’ she said, relieved that she could keep her new dinnerware.
Some of her followers even went as far as to say it was the busy mum’s ‘best hack yet’.
But it isn’t the first time the mum’s work has blown others away, she recently shared a video explaining how she transformed a filthy drain on her kitchen sink into a pristine state, using just four household ingredients.
‘Here’ a clip on how to deep clean your drain – consider it your motivation,’ Liz posted.
BEFORE AND AFTER: A mother has shared her horror after discovering the state of her kitchen drain, and revealed how she tackled it with just four household ingredients
To perform the deep clean, she used bicarb soda, vinegar, an old toothbrush and boiling water.
To begin, Liz said you should use a screwdriver to remove your drain and expose what is lurking underneath.
Following this, sprinkle a cub of bicarbonate soda directly onto the gunky mess, and add a cup of vinegar directly on top.

After leaving it for a few minutes, the drain should be scrubbed with an old toothbrush to dislodge any set-in dirt and grime.
Finally, boil your kettle and pour it all over the top to wash the dirt away and leave your drain sparkling.

Thousands who saw the clip were impressed and said they would definitely be cleaning out their drains as soon as they were home.
‘Oh my goodness, I am so scared to look at my drains now,’ one woman posted.
‘I love this, it’s gross but so satisfying,’ another added.
A third wrote: ‘I am immediately going to find a screwdriver to see what 10 years of uncleaned drains looks like’.

Previously, Liz has shared a number of household tips and tricks – including how to stop your sheets from getting tangled in the dryer.
‘It’s easy to avoid tangles in the dryer when you know how,’ Liz posted on Instagram.
Most importantly, Liz said you shouldn’t overload your machine.
‘Everything should be kept loose and free to move,’ she wrote.
This might mean drying your sheets, covers, pillowcases and towels separately, as otherwise the dryer won’t work properly.
The stylist also said you can throw a couple of tennis balls into the dryer too, which will assist the process.
‘Besides reducing wrinkles and fluffing towels, tennis balls allow air to circulate in the dryer,’ Liz said.
‘They also speed up the drying time while helping to separate folds and twists in the fabric.’
