What do a rubber band, a shelf liner and a rubber glove have in common? Each can easily open a stuck-on lid!
Chances are you already own these household helpers, here's how you can put them to use:
- A Rubber Band
Stretch a rubber band around the lid of the jar to get a grip. If you still find the jar slipping you can slide an additional rubber band around the jar itself to give you more traction.
- A Shelf Liner
The non-skid shelf liners are great for keeping food items on the pantry shelves. Cut a small square to get a grip when opening the jar.
- A Rubber Glove
The textured non-slip surface makes the perfect jar opener. You don't even have to put it on, just place it over the lid and twist.
The next time you need help opening a jar of jelly, a bottle of nail polish, or a tube of toothpaste, just reach for one of these household helpers.
