Trouble always happens at the most awkward moment. If you urgently need to open a tin can, and the knife, unfortunately, has gone somewhere or has broken, you can solve this unpleasant problem very simply. Two small, but ingenious in their simplicity tricks will help you open a tin can in just a minute. Choose a way to your liking!

So, for the first trick you will need an ordinary spoon. Take it in your hands, as shown in the photo, firmly hold your fingers.

Then push the edge of the jar, holding the spoon back and forth with a little pressure.

After half a minute a small hole forms in the can.

Hold the spoon tight in your hand, pry the edge and start opening the can, as you would with a can opener.

The bank is open! Be careful: in this way, the edges of the jar are very sharp.

The second method requires the same amount of time, but a different material at hand. Simple emery paper is best suited, although, if you are in the country, a concrete block or an abrasive stone may also play its role. So, place the jar on the sandpaper and start rubbing for half a minute with the touch.

Thus, you "erase" the edge of the banks.

It is necessary to rub exactly until such stripes appear at the edges of the can:

This means that you can now easily open the jar by simply squeezing it with your hand. Cover on top just fly out.

The tin can is open!
