  • WOW New 11 Ways To Open Any Hard-To-Open Jar Lid

    My ways are guaranteed to help you no matter what situation you’re in, and no matter what kind of jar it is. Whether the jar is vacuum sealed or stuck with honey or something else, I’ve got you covered!

    You may always want to know the best way to do things. The best way depends on what is the problem. The problem could have different causes.

    If you just want to purchase your opener, here is the link: Opener

    If you could not open a jar, it could simply because you were turning it in the wrong direction, but assuming you didn’t make that mistake, there is only one reason why you can’t open it. That is, your force can’t overcome the resistance of the jar. For that, you may blame either the person or you may blame the jar. 🙂

    If you prefer to blame the person, there are 2 possibilities. You either have weak fingers or a weak wrist/arm.

    Weak fingers can’t apply sufficient force perpendicular to the surface to generate sufficient friction, thus your hand slips. To compensate for this, we can use many non-slip materials: rubber glove, leather glove, wide rubber band, balloon.

    To turn the lid, you should use your arm instead of your wrist to turn the lid, because your arm is much stronger, and wrists can be easily injured.

    If you feel that your weak wrist or arm is the problem, you can leverage your force by using tools with long handles. The longer the handle, the less force is needed. For example if you can extend the length of the pipe wrench, or the oil filter wrench, you will gain more power.

    If you think the jar is the problem, you need to investigate the 3 possibilities of what is causing the high resistance.
    The 3 causes are the vacuum seal, high friction on the threads and liner, or solidified food. You need to match the tools you have to solve each problem.

    Two solutions to break the vacuum: either prying or tapping.

    Prying: you may buy special tools, or you can use a beer bottle opener, a spoon, a butter knife or a screwdriver to poke around the jar’s perimeter so that you can introduce an air leak and break the vacuum.

    Tapping: You may use a wooden cooking utensil to whack the top of the lid. You need to whack it hard but not so hard that you break the glass. You hope it will break the vacuum as well as unstuck the lid. You can also use the back of a knife to whack as long as you’re careful.

    If a jar is vacuum sealed, then there is often a seal button, see here. If this button or the lid pops up, it means the vacuum is broken. If you have high friction on the threads, you may use a heating method. Reduce friction: Heating the metal lid will reduce the force needed because metal will expand more than glass.

    The heat source could be your stove, hot water, hair dryer or cigarette lighter.

    There are two common types of jar lid, one is continuous threaded where the jar and lid are both threaded in one continuous bead. It is similar to a nut and bolt. To open it, you need to turn at least 360 degree. Since the thread is long and gradual, you may potentially have a tighter seal, thus it may be harder to open it.

    The second type is lug or called twist-off type where the container has multiple threads and the lid has an equal number of lugs or tabs that grip the corresponding threads. You can see a few nubs here. To open it, typically you need to turn the lid less than 90 degree. This is easier to keep clean and free from sticky product.

    Sometimes a jar that has been opened before will still be tough to open if the contents are something sticky, like honey. When the lid is heated, the honey or other sticky substance should soften or melt, making it easier to twist open.

    Finally, if you have a jar of honey or something sticky, you can put some plastic wrap over the thread so that it will be easy for you to open it next time.

    Note: if you heat the jar, you may not heat too long because even though the vacuum has negative pressure, heating would generate vapor and thus may create positive pressure and explode.

    Assuming that you don’t have a funnel, knife, or a screw driver, we will show you how to pour oil without spilling! Whether you have a 1-quart bottle or 5-quart jug, we have you covered. And you’ll impress your friends!

    Since there are different kinds of oil bottles and different kinds of cars, we have done extensive research to cover all possible scenarios. Hopefully you will find the solution to suit your needs. If you don’t find a solution, or if you have any tips, please leave a comment below.

  • Easy 3-Step Parallel Parking With 3 Simple Markers


    For new drivers, parallel parking is considered to be the hardest skill. For non-new drivers, the problem is not remembering how to do it when it is needed. Or you may not have the confidence to do it in one shot.

    Mathematically, there is only a single fixed solution to parallel parking. If you follow the instructions exactly, there should be no variations and anyone should be able to complete the parking in one shot without hesitation. When you have a problem, either you are not following the instructions correctly and precisely or more commonly the instructions were not precise and were hard to interpret. Today I am giving you the shortest and very precise instructions in just 3 steps. Instead of using common phrases such “knowing your 4 wheels” or “don’t collide front, back, left or right”, I am providing you with 3 easy to understand and well-aligned markers to follow while you are inside the car driving. The video is a little long because I want to demonstrate multiple times and I want to explain the concept well so that you will never forget. Once you learn it, you’ll be good for life.

    I understand that some of you may have your own preferred set of instructions, and may have already mastered the art of parallel parking. However, teaching someone else is quite a different thing! I have spent a year in researching and producing this video, so I would appreciate any comments that let me know if the concept in this video is good or not.
