So you’re in the garage, spinning a few wrenches and your hands are disgusting in every possible way. You need a snack. But, if you just pop open the top of a bag of delicious Doritos and eat it like a normal human, you will be scraping the gear oil off of your hands and lubing the insides of the bag. Gear oil does not add the flavor that you want – ever. I’ve tried it. You should not.
So, being resourceful, you add a couple slices to the top of the bag, and tear the entire side of the bag down, folding it under the itself. Â Now you can easily eat Doritos without scraping the gritty, automotive flavor onto your cheesy chips.
