If You Think Something Is Hard To Open, Maybe You’re Not Doing It Right.

Unlike with most humans, you can’t just take a tightly-sealed jar of pickles out for a drink and have it open up. No, it takes brute strength, focus, and, more often than not, loosening it up so the person you ask to open the dang thing for you can with ease. We’ve all been there before, but luckily, we’ll never have to go there again–and not just for pickles either. Take a look at how you should be opening these typically tough to open things.  

Oranges

Biting into the skin of an orange will give you a good starting point for peeling the fruit with your hands.

Coconuts

One easy way to open a coconut is by striking it with the blunt part of a knife.

Chips

Using two coins can really make opening that bag of chips a lot easier.

Clams

Freezing clams will make them open up on their own.

Pistachios

To easily open a pistachio, just enlist the help of another pistachio.

Garlic

Shaking heads of garlic in a bowl is a fast way to peel the bulbous plant.

Keyring

Use a staple remover to pry open a keyring.

Sealed Jars

Put a rubber band around a sealed jar to get a better grip.

Nail Polish

Use nail polish remover to loosen up a stuck nail polish cap.

Can Openers

Can openers can be a useful tool in opening more than just cans. Try them on tough plastic packaging too.
