If you’re struggling to open a jar on your own, TikTok users may have found a solution.

Paul Treyvaud, an Irish restaurant owner and multimedia lifestyle presenter for Treyvaud Travels and Treyvauds Kitchen, showed his followers how to remove a lid from a hard-to-open jar with a spoon, and the video has gone viral as others tried out the hack .

“People with arthritis, people who are older, people who don’t have strength in their hands, this is a huge tip for you,” Treyvaud said at the beginning of his video, which was published December 20, 2022.

Treyvaud explained that a household spoon can be used to open a jar of any size when the tip of the utensil is placed under the lid, where a “groove” is built in and flush with the mouth of the jar.

“The reason it’s so hard to open these jars is very, very simple. It’s because of the suction when they close and that makes it difficult,” Treyvaud said in his video.

“Get a small teaspoon, a small spoon, go into one of the grooves…on the rim of the jar and under the lid, and listen,” he added.

He demonstrated the spoon chopper with a jar of pickles and showed how the lid seal was loosened.

Treyvaud flipped the lid off with ease and urged viewers to share the video so people can minimize waste and save money instead of buying jar-opening tools.
