It’s early morning and you’re packing your lunch for the day. You’ve got your sandwiches and your favourite snack all stored away, waiting to be devoured when lunchtime finally rolls around. You make your way to the fruit bowl preparing for an apple or a banana, but no: it’s an orange. The messiest, stickiest fruit in the entire world and the white shirt’s natural enemy. You know that if you attempt to peel this thing at your desk there’s going to be an event that you can only describe as an orange-pocalypse, but how can it be avoided?
Well, it’s time to stop living your life in fear of the dreaded messy orange, and start using this amazing trick that will ensure you peel oranges like a pro and maintain an orange-juice wardrobe and workspace for ever more. All you have to do is cut the peel around the middle and place the end of a piece of cutlery through the gap, under the peel to loosen it. After you’ve been around a few times, twist the two halves off and voila! Better yet, you can do this at home before you pack the orange away and it’ll still be fresh come lunchtime!
