An easy way to peel raw chestnut: an unexpectedly useful life hack
Chestnut is a low-calorie nut that is rich in vitamin C. It can be used to make many different desserts and snacks. Edible chestnuts are usually boiled or fried.
But it is not so easy to peel this unusual product. Japan Today has published a useful life hack that will help you to cope with this easily.
Put raw chestnuts in the freezer overnight. Then take them out and pour boiled water over them right away. Leave them for 5 minutes.
Next, take out the nuts, cut off the flat bottom with a knife and peel off the shell with your hands. This easy trick does not require much effort or time.
Chestnuts can not only be used to make various delicacies but also used in the household.
Insect and pest repellent
Put a few chestnuts in your closet or wardrobe. As they dry, they will release chemicals that insects don't like. This way, you can save things from moths.
Horse chestnuts contain a chemical similar to soap, which is used for cleaning.
The crushed chestnuts should be placed in a jar of hot water for at least 12 hours. Then carefully strain off the milky liquid and use it as a cleaning agent.
But do not use the solution to clean light surfaces or fabric.
