Garlic has an awful smell that permeates the air and clings to you when you handle them, and most times, you want to get the task of peeling or chopping them over and done with to minimize the smell on you.

The regular method involves using a sharp knife to painstakingly peel the skin off each clove of garlic, while you suffocate under that pungent smell.

There are however, other simpler ways you can get the whole garlic peeled as quickly as possible, and most times you can achieve this in less than 10 seconds.

Here are Some Methods You Can Use


Peel Using Two Bowls

Place whole garlic into a bowl and cover with another bowl, bottom facing down. You want to get both bowls so close that the garlic gets wedged between and then squash with the bowl on top. This will separate the skin from the flesh and make it easy to peel.
