My husband was out of town for over a week for a trade show recently. Even though I like to be independent I certainly missed him while he was gone, and the small things that he can do easier than me - like get things down from the top shelf without a ladder. And even though this trick works just as good as man hands, I still like to ask him to open jars for me. The trick?
Rubber dish-washing gloves. Lid is stuck.
Twist and viola! Open!
It really is amazing the difference that extra grip makes.
