Surprising Uses For Everyday Products

8. Tongs
Tongs are a great resource for getting extra juice out of a lime or a lemon. Squeezing by hand isn't always efficient, but a tong will help you squeeze your citrus dry. (And it's easier on our hands.) 

Put the half-cut lemon or lime in the tong, but don't put it inside the "spoon" tips. Instead, put the citrus right underneath, where the arms begin. Then squeeze the citrus hard, and you will get almost all of the juice out.
