How to Open a jar
Open a jar with ease with these simple tips.
You Will Need
* A strong grip
* A towel
* Rubber bands
* A sponge
* A strong kitchen knife or screwdriver
Step 1: Grab jar
Grab the base of the jar with one hand. With your other hand, firmly grasp the lid and turn it counter-clockwise.
Tap the edge of the lid on the edge of a counter to help break the seal.
Step 2: Use towel
Cover the jar with a towel to get a firmer grip if you cannot open the jar with your bare hand.
Step 3: Run under water
Run hot water over the lid to help dissolve any liquid stuck under the lid.
Step 4: Use rubber band
Wrap a thick rubber band around the lid to get a better grip.
Use a couple of thin rubber bands if you can't find a fat one.
Step 5: Use wet sponge
Use a damp sponge to help you get a tighter grip.
Step 6: Poke a hole
Use a strong kitchen knife or a screwdriver to pierce a hole in the lid. This will release the vacuum inside the jar and make it easier to open.
