Personally, I find it really difficult to peel an orange compared to a mandarin. Whenever I have to peel an orange by myself, my hands become sticky. I'm going to show you how to peel an orange  two different ways without making your hands sticky. One requires a knife, while the other requires your hands.

Got a handy knife around you? Here's how you would peel an orange with a knife without putting in too much effort. Also, please take extra caution to not cut yourself.

1. Hold the orange and slice both ends with a knife.

How to Peel an Orange With Your Hands

Just because you don't have a knife doesn't mean you can't peel an orange easily. 

1. Roll the orange firmly. We;re not making orange juice here, so make sure you're not squishing the orange by putting too much force. Roll it for 20-30 seconds.

3. Start peeling. If you're skeptical of this method, compare an orange peeled through this method to an orange peeled purely using force and see the difference.

Now you know the two easiest ways to peel an orange. If you're willing to be a bit more adventurous, try using a microwave to make peeling an orange easier.
