Viral Kitchen Hack Reveals How to Peel Garlic With the Single Pull of a Knife

Have you ever wanted and looked for an easier way to prep and peel garlic?
Well, a gamer and artist from Toronto, Canada seems to have discovered just that.
In a video shared to Twitter, Valentina demonstrated how the simple hack works. All you have to is stick a knife into the middle of one of the cloves of garlic and simply pull it out with a slight swiping motion.
The technique makes it so that you don’t have to actually peel the entire head of garlic one clove at a time:

The video was watched more than 16 million times and retweeted more than 124,000 times.
Well-known English actress and recipe-author, Fay Ripley, even admitted that Valentina’s garlic hack “just changed my…life.” And many more agreed:
I feel like my life has just been changed
I can’t believe I’ve been wasting all that time. I’ve never been this excited to make dinner.
i want all that time back.
Some even got around to trying the new technique themselves, adding that it actually does work:
oh boy it’s real. I got it pretty quickly although not nearly as fast as you are.
Another shared a photo of her attempt, saying it only took her 30 seconds to peel an entire head of garlic:

Not bad for 30 seconds of time. I had a small bulb of garlic. The bigger pieces were easier to pull out. pic.twitter.com/4Y1AL2Cxei
