Have you ever struggled to peel a hard boiled egg by hand? If so, today is your lucky day.

In this viral video, uploaded by YouTube’s MicahMedia, learn how to peel a boiled egg with nothing more than some water, a glass, and some vigorous shaking -- all in under 20 seconds.

Just pop that egg into a glass, add some water...

Shake, shake, shake -- and voilà! (Watch the video above to see exactly how it's done.)

The clever trick will apparently even work with multiple boiled eggs, but may require a larger container to hold them all.

Adding vinegar or baking soda to the water when boiling the eggs may make them even easier to peel. Another simple method of peeling hard boiled eggs is to use a spoon. Alternatively, you can also try this one-handed rolling technique that promises to help you peel an egg in just three seconds.

Oh, how we love egg-peeling hacks.
