Look: occasionally, on the journey to adulthood, you’re going to miss out on some crucial pieces of information. It’s inevitable. Maybe you never learned the proper way to tie a necktie. Perhaps you’re not 100% sure how to use bleach on your laundry.
Or maybe you just never learned the correct way to use a lemon juicer — because apparently a significant portion of the internet is totally oblivious about the proper way to juice a piece of citrus.
So, you know how some of you put lemons/limes in a juicer like this? With the round part facing out?
Yeah, well, YOU’VE BEEN DOING IT WRONG THIS WHOLE TIME. You’re actually supposed to slice off the end of the citrus …
… and place it in the juicer so that the rounded part is digging straight into the meat of the citrus.
Boom. Perfect juice results.
While some of you might be like, “No, duh, that is OBVIOUSLY how you use a juicer,” some people were totally unaware of this citrus fact.
Twitter user @FreddyAmazin recently shared the revelation to his followers, and people were so shocked that the tweet actually went viral, with over 7,000 favorites and 3,000 retweets.
People were shaken to their very core.
If there’s one thing the internet always provides in spades, it’s people who have no idea how to operate basic pieces of equipment.
But hey, if you were in the dark on this whole lemon juicer thing, here’s hoping you learned something new today!
