Use Drawer and Shelf Liner to Open Jars

Category Reusing
Non slip liners for shelves and drawers can be used to help open tough lids on jars. It's a great way to repurpose the last of the roll.

I was trying to open a bottle of Naked Mighty Mango smoothie the other day and could not get a decent grip on the lid to twist it off. I tried a dish towel with no success. Then I had my minor epiphany and thought of the piece of "rubber" shelf liner that I use under the cats' bed to keep it from slipping when they jump up.

I tried it and it worked really well. So if you have a bit of this material lying about, it can fill in for your jar lid opener when you can't find it or substitute for buying a special tool for the job. Silicone hot pads also work.

I found another use for my roll of no-skid drawer liners. I cut them into various shapes and they are great for opening lids that won't budge! I can always use help opening lids, since the factories often put them on way too tight.

Here are some of them which I now have in the kitchen, my bedroom, and my purse. I'm giving the rest to friends and neighbors ;)
