This is a really easy Kitchen Hack that you can benefit from! The next time you put a pot of water on the stove to boil, place a wooden spoon across the top of the pot. When the pot begins to boil, the wooden spoon pops the bubbles not allowing the pot to boil over. This will give you a bit of time to turn the pot down before you have a huge mess.
Because the wooden spoon is cooler than 100°C, it breaks the bubbles and makes the foam retreat. If you leave the spoon on there a long time, the spoon will heat up and the bubbles will not retreat. Do not use a metal spoon, they heat up quickly and it is really easy to burn yourself. This technique works great when boiling spaghetti noodles.
