    From the stem, obviously
    I snap it in half and peel each piece separately
    I dig my nail in just under the stem and open along the seam
    I peel from the bottom
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Channel your inner monkey and use their method – flip the banana so the stem faces downward, squeeze the end, and peel!

    Scribble over it
    Cross it out with horizontal lines
    With the saviour that is Tipex
    I write over it with my name
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    By writing over words with letters, it’ll make what you’re trying to cross out illegible.

    Holes in the bottom of the bin
    TUG AND HOPE FOR THE BEST
    I have a “twist and pull” method
    I get someone to hold the bin down as I slowly slide the liner up
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Transform this chore from dire to simple by simply drilling holes into the bottom of your bin – this will eradicate any suction issues

    I just put them in and press go for a couple of minutes
    I dig a hole in the middle of the food
    I blast it on high heat for a minute and then finish heating at a lower temp
    I do it in short bursts, constantly checking the temperature
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    To ensure the heat is spread evenly throughout, make a well in the centre of your food, and — voilà — you have evenly heated deliciousness.

    I slide it down the side of a glass
    I use a knife to skin it
    I dig my nail into the skin and peel like an orange
    Who needs to peel when you can just take a big bite?
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    It really is simple as using the edge of a strong glass to separate the flesh from the skin.

    I buy a professional, expensive waterproof case
    I leave it at home – better to be safe than sorry
    Pop it in a plastic bag
    I just try to be careful?
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Cheap and easy to use, using a plastic bag to protect your phone from water damage really is revolutionary.

    I like to slice it up like a regular cake
    I stuff the whole thing into my mouth
    I slice it in half and put the icing in the centre to make a cupcake sandwich
    I eat the icing first and then tackle the cake
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    There really isn’t a right answer for this, but we can guarantee that if you turn your cupcake into a cupcake sandwich, your cupcake-eating experience will be outrageously improved.

    I hold it up as I play it
    I don’t – the sound quality is terrible
    I put the phone in an empty glass
    I put it facedown
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Simply placing your phone in a cup or glass will enhance the sound – perfect for those speakerless moments.

    I pick each seed out individually – you have to really commit
    I bash it with a spoon
    I try to crack the seeds out after slicing it into segments
    I put it in a plastic container and shake until the seeds have fallen out
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Trust us – this is a tried-and-tested technique. Slice the pomegranate in half, and then hit the back of one of the halves with a wooden spoon into a dish.

    On a flat surface
    I use the back of a knife
    With the serrated edge of a knife
    Against the side of the bowl or pan
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Gently tapping the egg on a flat surface and pulling the egg apart with two hands will reduce the risk of having to scoop out bits of eggshell.

    That’s what garlic crushers were invented for
    With my fingers, but I can’t get the smell off for days
    I slice the clove in half and then peel from there
    I place the cloves in two bowls and shake shake shake.
    Correct!
    Wrong!

    Place garlic cloves in a bowl (plastic or metal preferably) and cover with another bowl to form a sphere. Then, shake your sphere like a polaroid picture – the garlic cloves will just fall out of their skins!
