    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

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