A nutritionist has found a simple hack to juice a lemon without cutting it open and all you need is a 60p skewer.

Jacqui Baihn, from the Gold Coast, Queensland in north-east Australia, demonstrated the mess-free trick on TikTok where she told her viewers: “I was today years old when I found out you could do this!”

In the clip, which has been viewed more than 374,300 times since she posted, Jacqui pierces the tip of a lemon with a stainless steel skewer and pushes it through to the other side to create a narrow hole stretching from end to end.

Once she removes the skewer, she can easily squeeze the lemon to let the juice run smoothly into a cup without getting her hands dirty.
