How To Open A Water Bottle
This is the simplest hack. Simply leave your cap bottle under running hot water. Or you can pour hot water into a bowl and soak your bottle cap inside. After a short while, the bottle cap will expand and you can open the cap with ease! Just be careful not to scald your hands especially if the cap is metal. Run it under cool water before opening!
Grab a rubberband and tie it around the bottle cap. Place a cloth over then use it to twist open the cap. Usually, the reason why you can’t open the bottle is not because you’re weak, but due to lack of traction. There isn’t enough friction between the bottle cap and your hands. It’s better if you use thick rubber bands but using those red ones work fine too!
