You know how you can easily manage open reserves, even if there’s no one around for whom is this game going to be? There are several ways to do this without brute force. Sometimes, you just need to open the jar, and you can’t get in.
Fasten the cap with a rubber glove
The first thing you can try to prevent the glass from slipping is to put on the rubber glove that you use when cleaning. If it is not at hand, put a rubber band on the glass. Then it won’t slide off and you should be able to pop it open easily.
Create air pockets
You may know this trick. Press the edge of the lid with a spatula or wooden spatula to create air pockets. Thanks to this lid unzips itself and opening it is a breeze. This is easy for softer lids.
Turn the mug upside down and immerse it in hot water, or leave it under hot water for a while. After 30 seconds, the cap is unscrewed. Heating works even if you use a hair dryer on the glass.
Hit the glass on the table
Hold the glass at a 45-degree angle and strike the edge of the lid against the edge of a table or kitchen counter. Repeat this on several sides around the perimeter of the glass. If this does not work, turn the jar upside down and tap the entire flat surface of the lid on the table.
Make a hole in the lid
Only try this method if you no longer need the lid. You can use a screwdriver, knife, or can opener to pierce the lid. Negative pressure is created and the jar is easier to open.
Unscrew the cap with a knife or screwdriver
Sometimes the cover cannot be released in any way. Then try prying it up with a knife or screwdriver. Lift the cap around the perimeter of the glass. The moment the air gets under it, the glass relaxes. It’s a last resort, but it never fails and it almost always works.
