You Will Need

- A towel
- Rubber bands
- A sponge
- A strong kitchen knife or screwdriver
Grab the base of the jar with one hand. With your other hand, firmly grasp the lid and turn it counter-clockwise.
Cover the jar with a towel to get a firmer grip if you cannot open the jar with your bare hand.
Run under water
Run hot water over the lid to help dissolve any liquid stuck under the lid.
Use rubber band
Wrap a thick rubber band around the lid to get a better grip.
Use wet sponge
Use a damp sponge to help you get a tighter grip.
Poke a hole
Use a strong kitchen knife or a screwdriver to pierce a hole in the lid. This will release the vacuum inside the jar and make it easier to open.
