Open a tightly fastened jar lid

Remove stubborn jar lids from bottles with these clever pointers.
At times the lids of jars can become extremely difficult to remove. The next time a lid is fastened too tightly to remove, try giving it a few fairly hard taps around the edge of the lid using a heavy spoon or the back of a knife. This should break the seal and help the lid to twist off easily. Another method is to use a latex glove or damp towel. The glove or towel will provide grip and should assist you to remove the lid with little difficulty.
