Bottle Boa.

I like to think that I'm a strong independent woman that never needs a man and generally I can manage this, until you place a jar or bottle in front of me and I can't for the life of me get the d*mn thing open.

Quite sadly, it's a rather regular occurrence and this all came to a head when everyone had gone out and I was desperately trying to get into a jar of pasta sauce... (I landed up calling one of the boys to come round from next door and open it.... to be fair they struggled but it was so embarrassing!) I'm hoping I'm not the only one that struggles with jars and the such like.....


This situation led to me being given a mini boa bottle opener so that I don't have to get myself into that sort of situation again. I'm not going to lie, when I first saw it I thought it looked way more complicated than it needed to be (mind you, the grippy type cloth I'd tried to open before looked way to simple so I guess you can't ever win. ) My flatmates all questioned what it was when I first tried to use it. I had all sorts of suggestions - Sex toy(?!), some sort of DIY implement, and blade....


To be fair, when I actually looked at the packaging, the instructions were really really straight forward, the hardest bit was getting it out of the packaging...

I gave it a test on a half empty bottle on amaretto that everyone had given up hope of it ever being opened  again and once I'd tightened the strap the bottle opened with very little problem... I tried again on a jar that the lid was too bog for my hand and there was no problem there either!

It's safe to say that it is a rather nifty gadget for people like me and I'd definitely recommend it for people who have week wrists or generally struggle maybe a little like nan...





I was not in any way paid for this post. It was a gift from a friend. Any views are my own entirely.
