The Salt Your Plate Life Hack I Learned from a Waitress

I love this life hack. I’m not going to lie. I always wondered if I sent my plate back because I found a hair in my food, would they just take it to the back and return the same plate to me instead of a new plate altogether?

I no longer have to worry about that with the salt-the-plate life hack. I learned this from my friend, who worked as a waitress for years.


Here is how it works … next time you find a hair in your meal, salt the dish heavily. This will ensure they don’t just take it to the back, remove the hair, and return it to you.

While one would hope that would get better customer service in a restaurant, you really never know. Well, that is, until now. With the salt plate lifehack, you’ll know if they returned the same old food to you as before.

The salt-the-plate life hack is a brilliant and simple method to ensure that your meal is not simply returned to you after a hair or any other foreign object is found in it. It gives you peace of mind in situations where the quality of customer service might be questionable. This trick learned from an insider in the restaurant industry, is definitely worth trying out to guarantee a fresh and clean meal.
