This one is a good one.
if you don’t need the jar lid to be PERFECT (air or corrosion), you can whack a small hole in the top (do it safely, I take no responsibility for anybody’s whacking skills)
I use a pry on the edge of the lid to reduce suction.
THE EASIEST & QUICKEST:
give the jar a THWACK on the bottom with your hand. It often helps pop the seal. 7 years ago
Exhale slowly but forcefully as you are applying force to the lid. Make the breath come from your belly—if you are familiar with singing or martial arts, it’s the same kind of breathing. Don’t stop applying force until you have expelled every last bit of air from your lungs, which you can do by squeezing all of your core muscles: abdominals, obliques, and all the little ones around your ribs.
I promise you will open many more jars and bottles applying this breathing technique. What’s more, it actually strengthens your core muscles! 7 years ago
