Peeling garlic can be a difficult task. It can be made much easier if you have one of those garlic peeler tube thingies. What also works really well is a silicone pot holder. The nice thing is that while the cost of the pot holder is similar to the garlic peeler it has more uses in the kitchen.
Peeling the garlic with the silicone pot holder is easy. Lay the pot holder down on the counter. Put a clove in the center. Fold the pot holder over the garlic clove and gently press down and roll the clove back and forth. You should hear and/or feel a sort of cracking as the garlic skin begins to break away from the meat. As soon as that happens, unfold the pot holder and pull the skin off the garlic clove.
