Peeling potatoes is a pretty time-consuming and fiddly task, but it has to be done.
Well now, it can be done in half the time thanks to a woman who shared a simple trick that makes it easier to hold the potatoes when you’re peeling them.
TikTok user @larissaandjoel revealed that the only item you’re going to need – other than your potatoes and your peeler – is a fork, in a video that has been viewed more than 2.3 million times.
Larissa replied to a video from @TheLifeBath which asks for people to share the “life hack that you randomly saw one day, that is now an unconscious standard practice in your life,” and this one will change how you peel potatoes forever.
In the video which is captioned: “GAME CHANGER,” Larissa stabs a fork into the side of a potato.
Then, she starts peeling it like normal.
But because she’s not having to hold the potato, she’s able to remove the peel extremely quickly, without the fear of cutting her finger in the process.
Since being posted, the video has been liked 270,000 times and has received 4,700 comments.
One person wrote: “I will be peeling potatoes this way for the rest of my life.”
Another added: “Wait a minute. Wait a dang minute.”
While a third said: “My fingers and knuckles are so thankful for this.”
“I’m not even sure why I went to college at this point,” commented another.
