Great Tools for Solo Women

Great Tools

As a senior solo woman, with some arthritis in my fingers, I often have trouble opening bottles, jars and similar items.  A friendly man living close by would be a help, but I have found some tools that have made a dramatic difference.

I am a great fan of Howards Storage World and recently I found a Jarkey Jar Opener.  This cute tool is easy to use, and with little pressure lifts the lid removing the “bubble” making it easier to just turn the lid – either with a tool or by hand.


The other day I went to Howards to buy something for a Christmas gift, but they’d sold out of the product I was after, but I found another tool which I have already found useful.

Bottle Opener

As it turned out, I had a small bottle of bubbly, which has been sitting in the kitchen for several weeks, because I could not remove the lid.   When I saw this tool in Howards I bought it and within seconds of arriving home, I opened the bottle.  Easy!

Both products are less than ten dollars and would make a lovely gift for someone who has challenges with jars and lids.

These tools could make great gifts for people who have challenges opening jars or bottles.
