When the internet brings us a clever idea that will help us be more efficient in life, like this garlic peeling hack, we strive to share them with you so you don't feel burnout from hustling too hard.
TikTok has become a popular video sharing platform for people to perform tricks, show off their skills and creativity in under 15 seconds.
Apart from being a source of entertainment, TikTok users have been sharing life-changing tips with the massively used #LifeHacks hashtag on the app, garnering over 220 million views worldwide.
We went through the videos and found these hacks to be time-saving and useful for our everyday life:

Of course, in the name of fun, not every video shared on TikTok was useful.
Some hacks were called out as fake, such as the video on how to test if your food is real or fake, as seen below.
