Opening Pill Bottles

Do you have trouble opening foil-sealed pill bottles? I used to try to unpeel it, try to pierce it with the thumb nail, grab a knife or scissors. Then a friend of ours shared a trick that really works.

  1. Unscrew and remove the bottle cap.
  2. Holding the bottle firmly in one hand, smack the foil-covered opening into the corner of the nearest cabinet, poking a good-sized hole in the foil covering.
  3. Remove the rest of the foil with your fingers.

    You're most likely in the bathroom or kitchen when you're opening a bottle of this sort, surrounded by cabinets with nice, square, pointed metal or wood corners.Pick one and use it.
