Have you ever been in a situation where you felt so thirsty but could not find that bottle opener to quench your thirst? Should you use your teeth to open your beverage? No, never. Well, you do not have to worry about a bottle opener any longer because you can open that bottle with a key. Let's find out more about it.
How to Open a Bottle with a Key
Just with some practice, you will learn how you can open a beer or wine bottle with a key. Here is how to proceed:
Open a Beer Bottle
Hold the bottle by the neck with your fingers close to the cap. Ensure that you have gripped it tightly.
Now, hold the key in your dominant hand and wedge it lengthwise between your index finger and the bottle cap. Ensure that you keep the teeth side of the key out. Adjust your grip if you have to.
Use your finger as a fulcrum, use some force to push the head of the key down with your dominant hand. You have to put pressure on the cap in a way that it pops it off the bottle. Do not try to open it quickly but apply steady pressure to get good results.
Open a Wine Bottle
Start by getting rid of the capsule from the bottle.
Find an ordinary house key and press it into the cork. Be sure to keep the key at a 45-degree angle. It is better to use a key that is not attached to a key ring. Keep pushing it in with some force.
Once the key is deep inside the cork, use your thumbs to help move the cork in a circle. Try to lift it slightly at the same time and you will notice the cork coming out slowly.
