- 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.
