I like to be as self-reliant as possible, so I look for tools and techniques to make my life easier. Whenever possible, I prefer to use everyday objects – things that I already have on hand.
A surgical glove is light-weight and tucks neatly into your purse or pocket. It provides the requisite friction for jar and bottle opening.
Thanks to this handy little glove, a dry throat can be assuaged! Although, my throat isn’t as parched now. Why? Well, I’m not griping about those tight bottle caps!
Thanks to Pam Roth for the first image.
