McDonalds customers have discovered a trick that means they don’t need to use the paper straws that are now provided at the restaurant.

Customers have been complaining that the new paper straws are disintegrating and changing the flavour of their favourite drinks.

However, customers are now changing their soft drinks lids with the lids that are meant to be used for hot drinks.

They go on to say that if you just ask for a hot lid, you will get one and when it goes on your drink, there’s no need for a straw at all.

Some people are calling it a ‘game changer’ but others are saying it actually uses more plastic than your average straw..
