I use vise grips to open small jars. Just adjust the grip (go to YouTube), and twist.

That won't work if the paint is dried completely. It'll be better if you just buy a new one.

This works on regular sized jars too. Ever since I was a kid we would keep thick rubber bands in the kitchen to open spaghetti sauce jars and such

He.. works great. I had a small bottle with ink lying around. Never been able to open it, but this simple trick did it :) (Still don't now what to do with the ink)

See? I told you it worked as an 'ible on it's own.

I've added this to the Tips and Tricks Group.

The bottom of a mousepad is great for opening jars/bottles, large or small.
