We all know that the best and easiest way to squeeze the juice out of a lemon is by using a lemon squeezer. However, if you don’t have one in your kitchen, you are probably doing it by hand and hating every moment of it. But what if we told you that there is a lot more efficient and simpler way to do it, and you only need one kitchen utensil that is probably already sitting in your utensil drawer?

In a recent video shared on Instagram, video creators Wes and Alison shared a genius hack for squeezing lemons without a lemon squeezer that will make your life a lot easier. All you need to do is take a pair of tongs, place the lemon halfway between the arms, and squeeze.

The lemon juice will pour out with minimum effort, and you won’t even have to make your hands dirty. If you think there is more juice that is worth the squeeze, simply rotate the lemon and squeeze again.

Instagram users were quite impressed with the hack, saying it will become a part of their kitchen routine. Some even added suggestions that improve it.

“but flip the lemon the other way so the seeds don’t fall in, “one Instagram user wrote in the comments section.

We will definitely be trying out this hack next time we are making lemonade. How about you?
