Step 1: Grab Your Stubborn Jar and Two Rubberbands.

Grab two rubberbands. Place one at the top of the item you are trying to open, and one at the bottom.

Step 2: Use the Grip of the Bands to Open the Jar.

Use the grip of the rubberbands to open your item. Bonus lifehack: Jars are actually easier to open in warmer temperatures. So, next time you buy something akin to a jar of pickles, open it before putting it in the frig!
