Opening up about the simple and fast hack, @kroger goes on to go through the steps one by one.
They went on: “Grab a large cup and fill it up with boiling hot water. Let it sit for a few minutes and then dump it out.
Once the water is removed from the glass, it’s time for the next step, which will see the butter transform in front of your eyes.
“Then place it over a stick of butter and wait around five minutes. And just like that, you have soft butter within minutes.”
