Jars can be mean. A stubborn jar lid will make you feel weak, inferior, pathetic even… it will mock you as it sits unopened on the counter, resistant to your futile efforts of twisting and contorting. Don’t let an evil jar get the better of you again, instead use this easy spoon trick the next time you encounter one of these demons:
1. First, hold the jar firmly in one hand, and the spoon in the other.
2. Place the spoon tip up in the crack between the lid and the glass jar and push up and back.
3. Press the spoon up to break the seal, if the seal doesn’t break right away, rotate the jar and repeat the motion again in different places until you hear a pop sound.
4. After the pop, remove the spoon and twist off the lid. It should open with ease.
There, you showed that jar who’s boss.
