Hack Of The Day: The Easiest Way To Juice A Lime
Don't roll them on the counter before doing this.
I'm assuming we're all still too tired from cooking and eating to deal with a real hack of the day, like converting a CD spindle into a bagel tote. That mostly involves throwing away a lot of CDs. Here's a trick for squeezing more juice out of limes that requires even less energy.
Zap a room temperature lime in the microwave for 15 seconds. Limes straight out of the fridge kind of seize up and microwave weirdly.
Remove from microwave, roll firmly on the counter, then slice and juice.
