Rather than fiddling with the skins with your fingers, James said you simply need to give it a good, hard whack.

Begin by slicing your onion in half and removing the stalk, and then simply hit it with your fist.

The force will make the onion bend, meaning that the skin will simply fall away.

You can then simply lift the loose skin off the onion without getting your fingers dirty.

Earlier this week a woman revealed an easy way to fill ice cube trays to avoid the common problem of having water splash back up in your face.

In a video that's been shared 4.3 million times TikTok user @4jmjcbitxh posed the question: "Am I just dumb or did nobody else know this either?"

The woman then showed how the middle section of the ice cube tray actually served a very important purpose.

"These little flat spots on ice cube trays are where you're supposed to fill in the water," she explained, showing how water flowed easily into neighbouring ice cubes sections.

"So it just goes in so nicely to all four."

The video soon got thousands of comments, with many people pointing out that they too were just as stunned by the discovery.
