Works For Me Wednesday - Loosen Jar Lids
"Honey, can you come and open this for me?" How many times have you had call for help because that lid just would not budge? --Or worse, no one is there to help you.
I came across a tip a while back that has really helped me. You know those lids that are too tight to get off, so you bang them on the counter trying to get them to loosen. Sometimes that works- if you don't break the jar first!
I am talking about jars that pickles or applesauce come in. There is a simple way to open these.
All you have to do is break the vacuum seal by lifting the lid just a bit, and the lid will open easily.
Use a bottle opener ...to gently lift the lid just a little.
You will usually hear a release of air and then the lid will twist right off!
Check out other tips to give your day a "lift" over at Works for Me Wednesday.
You will be smiling at all the things you'll learn:)
