How do I make a drink without spilling it?

Some people put one finger inside the glass to let them know when it’s almost full, but this isn't always ideal, for example when making a hot drink.

There is now a small device called a liquid level indicator, which is very useful when pouring liquids. You simply put the liquid level indicator on the rim of the glass, mug or cup and it will let you know when the liquid is near the top, so you know when to stop pouring. There are two versions of indicator, one makes a beeping noise and the other beeps and vibrates.

Further information on making hot drinks can be found in our Top tips - Making hot drinks leaflet:
