Does it annoy you when a jar is sealed so tightly that opening it is close to impossible?

Some are so stuck that your fingers and wrist start cramping from all that twisting and that is bad news for those who have arthritis.

There are many tricks to make that jar easier to open such as heating up the cap with hot water and using laundry sheets for added grip.

You can also buy the products developed to solve this problem, but if you want to try a DIY trick, you can improvise with a material that you might have at hand – duct tape.

Here’s how to do it:
Step 1: Wrap the duct tape around the lid. Tear off a strip of duct tape that is about one foot long.
Step 2: Fold the duct tape “tail” to make it easier to hold on to.
Step 3: Pull the tape in the “open” direction with one hand firmly on the body of the jar. Done!
