Interesting and fun to watch. I wonder if you can use two plastic, glass or pottery bowls.

I would bet you could use those. Just the shaking and bouncing against the sides of the bowls must take the paper off the garlic. ???

I think the water method is too much trouble. And the first one mentioned by still trying is the same method as the one suggested by nance. Sounds like the bowls need to be metal.

I'll continued to use my rubber garlic tube that's sold in kitchen stores for easy removal of the garlic skins. You just cut off the ends, insert the garlic in the tube and roll the tube a couple of times. Voila, the skin is off!

I have a jar of peeled garlic cloves in my refrigerator. Can't remember where I got them, they are in some kind of liquid.

This works fine for me!

LOS just reminded me of Trader Joe's frozen crushed garlic. It's in a little flat red package about 4x5 inches and it contains 20 cubes. You just pop out what you need. A real time-saver!
