  1. why do peeps always open jars the hard way? I’m as weak as they come and I never strain to open jars, tap side of lid on counter to release the air pocket , you’ll hear a pop and done just unscrew , no strain on hads at all!

    1. My husband makes a tiny hole in the cap of whatever he is trying to open. I Turn the jar upside down and bank it on the cutting board a few times and wala the jar opens.

    1. You dab some toothpaste on the item hanging, press it on the wall exactly where you want it, then put the nail where the toothpaste was. We use this one all the time.

  2. To open stuff I use a can opener, the kind you use to open bottles, just use it to pop the side for some air, tapping on the counter or with asomething can crack the glass, I did that for years but the bottle opener is so easy.

  3. Is there anyone that doesn’t know that to reheat leftovers you put them in the microwave with a paper towel over them? Am I missing something here?
