Johanna Westbrook, who lives in Dallas, shared a video of the newfound hack on May 13. Her clip, which has since racked up more than 1.7 million views, demonstrates a method for juicing fruit that many users said they’d never even thought of trying.
Then, she removes the stick and holds the lemon over a glass bowl, squeezing out a significant amount of juice with ease.
“Legit didn’t think this would work,” Westbrook captioned her video.
Even Westbrook herself seems shocked by the result, screaming into the camera and repeating her excitement that the juice came out completely seedless.
Her video sparked similar reactions from several commenters, who called the method “surprising” or wrote that they’d be trying it immediately.
“i made lemon bars two days i ago i wish i seen this sooner,” one user wrote.
Some users were less positive though, writing that the method isn’t as easy to pull off as it seems. Others, meanwhile, complained that the concept wasn’t really much of a “hack,” as it’s a fairly obvious idea.
“How could it not work when you just made a hole and it’s literally the only exit point,” one commenter wrote.
