Trick 1: Use rubber gloves or a towel

Opening a jar usually fails because the too slippery hands is it so. Wearing rubber gloves or a towel around the screwcap place, provide more adhesion. But if this trick is not enough, one of the following will definitely work.

Trick 2: Open the glass with the knife

Slide a dull knife under the lid and pry it open slightly. come this way air in the glass – if you hear a hiss, you know you have succeeded in the trick. The glass can then be screwed on without any problem.

Trick 3: Drill a hole in the lid

Similar to the last trick, this one also works: Let air into the glass using a pointed object, eg a knife. Drill holes in the lid. However, you have to be a little more careful with this trick. You should also tape the holes back up or decant the contents so they don’t spoil.

Trick 4: Hit the glass bottom

It is often enough if you use the flat hand against the bottom of the glass. To do this, first turn the glass down. Alternatively, you can gently tap the bottom or top of the jar against a hard surface such as a floor or table.

Trick 5: Hot water

Hold the jar under hot tap water for a while and opening it will be a breeze.
