It turns out there's a whole different way of storing peanut butter that makes it even more delicious that the original.

Peanut butter goes with almost anything, and by 'almost anything' we mean absolutely everything.

But there's one annoying thing that persists: the oil collection on the top of the jar.

For anyone using natural peanut butter, you know the struggle of having to mix this pool of peanut oil in with the rest of the peanut butter. But now comes along a shining piece of information into our peanut butter-obsessed lives that will change everything:

You should store the peanut butter jar upside down.

Imperial Leather soap stickers actually have a very important purpose

Yes, PureWow have concluded that you should store the peanut butter jar upside down.

This way, the annoying oil that collects on the top will actually spread through the entire jar, leaving the accessible peanut butter on the top of the jar ready to eat.

Another top tip is to store the peanut butter in the fridge - that way it's creamier (trust us).
