These hacks for your citrus squeezer make it one of the most versatile tools in your pantry

Get the most out of your citrus squeezer with these genius hacks!

Getting as much lemon juice as possible

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade! And if you want as much lemonade as possible, this citrus squeezer hack is a must. 

To get the most juice out of your lemons, simply cut your lemon in half and then cut the ends off. Next, place your cut lemon inside the citrus squeezer and press. Without the outer yellow peel (or rind), the juice squeezes out much more easily! 

Now all that’s left is to put that lemon juice to good use! Try adding it to a refreshing beverage everyone can enjoy. 

Bringing lumpy brown sugar back to life

Don’t let the name “citrus squeezer” fool you. The tool works with a lot of different food items. Like brown sugar, for instance!

If your brown sugar has gone lumpy due to losing its moisture, a citrus squeezer will come in handy. Just put those lumps inside and crush ‘em up! Your sugar will be nice and crumbly and ready to be added to your favorite dessert

Crushing graham crackers

Another non-citrus hack is using your squeezer to crush up graham crackers. 

Just break off some graham cracker pieces and place them in your squeezer. Fold the top over and squeeze. The graham crackers will get crushed into a nice powder that you can combine with your non-lumpy brown sugar to make a pie crust
