Open Tough Jars and Bottles with a Rubber Glove

  • Open tough jars and bottles by putting a rubber glove on! That'll give you all the grip you need to open just about any stubborn bottle.

    I also find that using a nutcracker works great - again, it just gives you a good grip on the bottle, allowing you to open it easily.

    If you STILL can't open that jar...then try tapping the edges of the jar lid with a butter knife. Somehow it opens the jar seal and makes opening it much easier.

    Have another handy tip on opening stubborn jars or bottles? Please send it in, or just post it in a comment below!

Cleaning Tips - Use Club Soda to Clean up Glass

Did you know that club soda is a great way to clean glass and mirrors? It doesn't matter if it's fresh or stale, just pour some into a clean spray bottle with a fine mist setting and spray away! Use newspapers or microfiber cloths to wipe up, so that you don't leave lint on the surfaces.

Also try club soda to clean faucets and taps - it'll leave them sparkling!
