Joanne Hay, who often shares decorating tips on her TikTok page @joannehaydecorating, posted a short video titled “On this occasion, faster is better.”

In the clip, she demonstrates how to cut perfectly, explaining, “One little secret about cutting – the slower you go, the harder you’re actually making it on yourself.”

“That’s because the human body is made up of millions of cells that are constantly vibrating.”

“It’s one of the reasons you can never keep your hand completely still.”

Joanne adds, “The trick is, if you go a little bit faster you get a smoother, straighter line because you don’t have that vibration.”

“So start your brush about an inch away from the area you want to cut into and glide towards it.”

“This faster gliding motion will make cutting in a little easier for you.”

The post has since gone viral and has been inundated with comments from DIYers all grateful for the top tip.

“I always say don’t think too much about making a straight line,” one wrote.

A second enthused: “Just edited a bunch of ‘right’ stuff after watching your videos. Thanks!”

A third commented: “Dunno, didn’t know that. As always, thanks for the tip.”

Another praised: “Great tip, I’m bad at cutting myself, I’ll try next time.”

And in response to the question, “What’s the best brush for incising,” Joanne advised, “A 2-inch brush gives you more control if you struggle a little.”
