The internet has brought humankind many great things—from cat memes and viral videos to hilarious accidents caught on camera. Lately, however, brilliantly-edited videos showing useful life hacks have become increasingly popular on social media.
If you think that TikTok is all about funny videos and dance-related content, you might be mistaken because there are quite a few users who are sharing their useful life hacks and wisdom from inside the kitchen.
Here are the top 3 food-related hacks from TikTok that will make your life in the kitchen easier.
1. Peeling Hard-boiled Eggs
Believe it or not, peeling hard-boiled eggs are no joke. One wrong move and you can cut your finger on the sharp edge of an eggshell. But, there’s no need to worry anymore because Tiktok user Zachcreanofficial is spilling the beans on an easy hack. To make peeling easier, poke a hole on one end of the egg and then on the other, secure the egg with your hands and blow. The perfectly peeled egg will pop out easily.
2. Chilling Wine and Grapes
Somedays, you come back from work and all you can think about is having a glass of wine. Unfortunately, you forgot to put the bottle in the fridge and you’re just not in the mood to wait around for the bottle to get chilled. Yes, you can use ice or even pop the bottle in the fridge while you freshen up but both of those ideas are not very effective. To chill your wine in a fun and unique way, why not try frozen grapes! Simply add them to your glass of wine and enjoy the cold beverage without waiting for hours or having a watered-down drink thanks to the melted ice cubes.
3. Cut Mangoes with Glass
Mangoes are the fruit of the summer—they are juicy and irresistible but cutting them can be a hassle at times, especially when you are trying to protect your clothes. Fear not, for TikTok user CrazyRussianHacker is here to save the day with a simple yet effective mango cutting hack. All you need is a glass and a mango that you must cut in halves before lining up one of the halves against the glass. Slide it down until the pulp falls into the glass, separating the peel from the pulp.
