Mum gets perfect slices of cheese every time with potato peeler trick

Cheese graters can cause a bit of a mess so one mum has a great trick to slice your cheese perfectly every time instead.

You can avoid those little bits of grated cheese sticking to your worktop but not have to take chunks off with a knife by using a potato peeler.

Posting in Extreme Budget DIY & Life Hacks, one mum said that she pulls the peeler along the edge of the cheese to get even slices.

She 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.’

Other people in the group loved the idea.

One said: ‘Why have I never thought of this??’

Another said: ‘This is genius.’

But she’s not the only one who figured out the hack.

Another commenter said: ‘I do this as well! Couldn’t find a knife one day and hey presto!’

After seeing the response, the original poster joked: ‘I cannot be held legally responsible for any excess consumption of cheese that occurs as a result of trying this method out.’

It’s not the only kitchen trick you might one to try.

Another mum revealed that she takes the bottle tops off ketchup bottles and attaches them to milk cartons to make it easier to pour for her kids.

Kate Anderson said it stops the milk shooting out when they tip the heavy carton too far.

You can flip the lip down when you’re done to keep the milk fresh.
