Some life struggles are identifiable for people all over the world, and the problem with ketchup stuck in a bottle is an age old issue which is no exceptions to these daily life struggles.

While people have been coming up with several life hacks to deal with the ketchup menace, scientists at MIT struck at the root of the problem by coming up with a material that lets the sauce slide out of the bottle swiftly.

 

There’s more good news, the material comes as a coating and can be used in containers for toothpaste, cosmetics and glue as well. But consumers need to wait a few years before the bottles finally get in production.

The effects of the technology go beyond just daily issues at home, since it has the potential to reduce waste by 200 gallons, which is the amount of material that ends up stuck in containers and gets washed off each year.
