Sometimes when you’re slicing cheese and it goes catastrophically wrong you end up piecing it together like some strange jigsaw on your toast (if you’re making cheese on toast, obviously).
That is until one woman gave us all some food for thought when she showed how incredible easy it is to get the perfect slice of cheese every time using a potato peeler.
Taking to the ‘Extreme Budget DIY & Life Hacks’ Facebook page, the woman wrote: “Probably my daftest moment ever however works an absolute treat.
“Use a peeler to slice your block of cheese!
Perfectly slim slices of cheese in a fraction of the time it takes me to use a knife #Lifehack”.
She later added: “DISCLAIMER: I cannot be held legally responsible for any excess consumption of cheese that occurs as a result of trying this method out”.
Responding to the original poster, one person wrote: “OMG I love this!” While another commented: “Why have I never thought of this”.
Someone else said: “This is genius !! How have I never thought of this,” with a fourth commenting: “I don’t understand why I’ve never done this”.
If, like this lady, you’re a bit of a cheese-a-holic, maybe it’s time to start stuffing the dairy product into your lip balm tubes to nibble on throughout the day…
A nine-year-old girl in the US is another person who has earned the ‘genius’ label, having stashed cheese in an empty lip balm tube so she can eat it in class.
Valerie Schremp Hahn, from Missouri, US, shared her daughter’s pioneering hack on Twitter and it soon went viral, garnering more than 68,000 likes. In case you’re curious, it was a sharp cheddar from Aldi she chose to stuff it with – which is clearly a sound choice.
Explaining the rationale behind the stealthy cheese contraption, the unnamed mastermind simply said, ‘cheese is amazing’.
Speaking to Buzz News, the child innovator (her mum asked for her not to be named) said: “I just found that [the lip balm tube], cleaned it out with some soap, and started filling it with cheese.
“You can lick it and no one will know. At first I didn’t tell them (her friends) and I was like licking the, quote, ‘cheese,’ and then I told them it was cheese and they just started laughing so hard.
“I’m just impressed that anybody would, like, like this out of all things. Cheese is amazing.” We couldn’t agree more.
