Bored Panda contacted Becky, the mom of two from Blackpool, UK behind the viral video, who is still overwhelmed with all the stir her box-folding video has created. “It was accidental, I never in a million years thought it would be viewed 3 million times!” Becky said she feels “incredibly lucky, all the comments and feedback has been really kind or funny.”

One of the reasons why the cereal box-sealing hack blew up so fast has to do with how basic it is. Becky told us she couldn’t believe she did not know this, and “the next morning, I thought I’d give it a go with the numerous cereal boxes we have and couldn’t believe how simple it was.” It turns out, the folding “literally takes seconds, looks really neat, and will stop cereal going all soggy.”

And here’s a step-by-step guide on how to do it

At first, Becky posted some pictures of the hack online and her friend asked for a video tutorial. “It made me giggle, but my husband and I quickly did and added it to the post!” Sooner than she knew it, people were sharing Becky’s video, commenting, and joining in with their own techniques for a neat cereal box sealing.

Everyone got excited about the hack and others have been doing it for a long time
