A quick and easy way to open a glass jar using a teaspoon has been shared with more than half a million people on TikTok.
Talented baker and cake decorator Tegan ‘Tigga’ Maccormack, from Melbourne, revealed the simple hack in a short video demonstrating how to open the sealed jar with ease.
While many often turn to running the jar under hot water or gently banging it against a countertop, Tegan instead slid the end of the spoon under the lid until she heard a pop.

With hardly any force she gave it a little twist sideways before hearing a popping sound
‘Just a quick little hack for anyone who’s struggled to open jar, sometimes I’ve seen some people banging it on the edge of the bench to try and loosen the lid off – you don’t need that, all you I need is a teaspoon,’ Tegan said in the clip.
At the start of the video Tegan can be seen struggling to open the jar of passata tomato sauce.
Using the spoon, she slid the handle under the lip of the jar and with hardly any force she gave it a little twist sideways before hearing a popping sound.
‘There goes the pop and that just means all the pressure has gone from the jar so the lid just twists off – easy as!’ she said.
