Separating Plastic Drinking Cups

Put them in the freezer and after they are thoroughly frozen try carefully pulling them apart. (12/22/2008)

Separating Plastic Drinking Cups

You can try filling the inside one with cold water and dipping the outside one in a sink or bowl of hot water. The heat will expand the outside cup. The cold will contract the inside cup. It should be enough to break the seal. (12/29/2008)

Separating Plastic Drinking Cups

The fastest solution might be to use your blow-dryer on the outside cup while trying to loosen the inner cup(s), which might take another person helping you. (12/29/2008)
