  • run the top part where the lid is under hot water for a while...

    or you can take the pointy side of a bottel opener and stick it under the lid and loosen it a bit, usually one of these tricks works for me!
    Good Luck!

  • Run it under warm water. Maybe it has some on the cap that you should rinse off.

  • If all the other suggestions fail....Wash ur hands really good, dry them, then try to open them using a towel! If that fails, ask a man! :(

  • After I try for about a minute, I always hand it off to my husband. He gets it every time. I swear I loosen it for him though!!
