Open Stubborn Jar Lids With This Simple Wooden Utensil Trick

0 11

This life-changing hack requires nothing but a wooden spoon. Simply hold a jar in your hand and smack the side of the lid’s rim. You’ll hear a popping sound, indicating that the seal has broken, and the lid will come off like magic. While it’s hard to tell who came up with the wooden spoon method, we know it went viral thanks to a TikTok video shared by @BBC. “OMG! This worked. I’ve had a jar for six months, which I could not open — and I had tried every suggested trick,” one TikTok user commented (via TikTok). Others said they got the same results by tapping the rim on the side of the counter or kitchen table.

If smacking the rim doesn’t work, you can also try hitting the top of the lid with a wooden spoon a few times until you hear the popping noise. Twist off the lid as soon as you hear the seal break. If you’re worried about accidentally breaking your jar, try the flour method to effortlessly remove the lid. This simple hack involves sprinkling a pinch of all-purpose flour around the lid’s edge, making it easier to break the seal. For a better grip, put on a pair of rubber gloves before twisting off the lid.
