Woman opens a bottle of wine using just a SHOE and a wall

  • A YouTube video shows a woman in Alabama opening a bottle using her shoe 
  • After placing the bottle into her footwear, she puts the sole of the shoe against the wall to create a 90-degree angle and starts to bang gently
  • After a few knocks, the cork rises up enough for her to twist it out with her hands

We’ve all been there – you’re just about to open a bottle of wine when you realise you’ve mislaid your corkscrew, or simply forgotten to bring one with you.

Never fear, this simple hack will mean you never need to remember to bring one with you ever again.

And no, it doesn’t involve a screwdriver or a trip to the shops. 

Genius: Holding the wine bottle in place, she puts the sole of the shoe against the wall to create a 90-degree angle and starts to bang gently

A YouTube video shows a woman opening a bottle using just the sole of her shoe and a wall.

In the clip, a woman explains that she and her friends are in a cabin in the middle of nowhere in Alabama. 

‘We’ve been trying to figure out how to get the corkscrew out of this bottle of wine and the lovely Amy has figured it out,’ she says, gesturing towards her friend.

Placing the bottle of wine in the opening in her shoe Amy explains: ‘We used the key trick to no avail. The flat shoe is working like gangbusters.’
