@that40yearguy went viral on TikTok with over 56 million views after he responded to a hack video on a super easy way to peel garlic!

“You’re telling me, for four years struggling day in and day out to peel garlic, I could’ve been doing this the whole time? No way.”

In the next clip, @that40yearguy shows us the super simple hack. All you have to do is stick a soft butter knife into one garlic clove on a bulb of garlic. Then, pull the knife to the side, and the garlic should pop right out, skin gone and all! Once you get the hack down, try making this Homemade Garlic Powder and Garlic Salt!
