Use a knife to hit the edges, Go over to my neighbors Yes I have done this luckly I have a really nice neighbor who I'm friends with
In all seriousness, back in 1974 when I was first living by myself, I bought a contraption called a "jar opener." I'm sure it's not sold anymore, it's damn dangerous unless you use it just right (even my grown kids are afraid of it, lol). Kinda a combination of a vise and a pair of pliers.
Plus, I work out, so I'm pretty damn strong. But sometimes I still need to pull out that torture device. And even I get hurt with it sometimes (caught the skin yesterday between my hand and thumb, took out a chunk of skin,ow).
take a butter knife, slide the blade between the lid and the jar on the edge, and gently pry apart. you might have to do it on both sides, but as soon as you hear the seal pop you can twist it right off. and then you don't have all those dingmarks on the lid from bashing the top.
Really???....grow up and be INdependent whether you are married or not!........one cannot always rely on others in life.
run the lid under hot water and tap the side with a knife handle.
oh, and if you have dishgloves or latex gloves, they will help you get a better grip on it if it's just the wrong size for your hand. in a pinch, I have also swiped one of my shelf liners and used it.
i dont think i have had this issue.
