Have you ever had a jar that no matter how hard you tried to open the lid, it just didn’t budge? Well there are tools out there to help make the process easier, but a mouse pad can do the job, too! Place the mousepad over the lid and twist. The rubber bottom will help grip the lid, and make it easier to open the jar lid.

It’s fun to think of everyday household items that can be used for more than just its conventional use. This can be a great way to save money and space. Instead of  buying a tool to open a jar lid, using what we already have in the home is cheaper and more convenient!

      You can use rubber bands too! Put a thick rubber band around the cap and twist. Same deal…the rubber band grabs hold of the cap and then it will help you to open the bottle/container.

      I have an oven mitt that has silicone grippers on it, which works really well for stubborn jar tops as well.

      Another fun tip- If you have a glass jar and a metal top, just run hot water over the top of the jar. Science fact: The metal expands at a faster rate than the glass, so it makes twisting the metal top off a breeze!
