Step 1: Get Your Cloves

Get as many cloves as you are going to need of the head of garlic.

Step 2: Cloves in the Bowl

Put the cloves in the bowl. If you need a lot of cloves to be peeled you might want to separate it into batches

Step 3: The Second Bowl

Put the second bowl on top of the first one. It would be best if there weren't a large gap otherwise the garlic is going to fly out

Step 4: Shake!

Shake it as hard as you can! Do this in bursts and check on the cloves in between. If there are any unpeeled cloves left remove the peels that have already come off and shake again. Remember: Shake it hard and fast

Step 5: Inspect

Make sure they are all peeled and if not remove the peeled ones and the peels and shake again

Step 6: Enjoy!

Your garlic is peeled and your hands don't smell! Enjoy!
