Fun Fact Friday

Having trouble opening a jar? Loop a rubber band around the lid – it will provide a firm grip that should aid in loosening the stubborn bugger.

Have a great weekend!

    Good tip! When my grandparents got arthritis in their wrists they had trouble opening jars, so I taught them this trick: just wiggle a knife under the lid slightly until it makes a little "pop" sound and then the lid should come off easy peasy. They havent had to ask their grandkids to open jars for them since!

    This sounds way safer than my method, which is whacking the heck out of the lid with the blunt end of a knife. Definitely trying your way next time!

    Thanks for the tips!
    Sometimes when the jar cap is too tight, I use chain wrench, a type of car oil filter removal tool..LOL!
