Jane’s top tips to make life easier for your sore wrist!

Tip One:

Jar opening: tap the side of the lid against something firm such as the bench top or a chopping board. This releases the pressure on the lid. Then use two small pieces of grippy mat to hold both the jar and the lid to easily open it. You can also use the grippy mat for bottle lids. Alternatively you can purchase a tool to help open jars.
