There are few things better than a refreshing cold beer or quality soda on a hot day, but getting them open can be a bit of work if you misplace your bottle opener. Don't worry, though: there are plenty of other easy ways to get that bottle open using common household items.


1. Raid the silverware drawer

If you're at home, simply use a spoon, fork, or butter knife as a makeshift bottle opener. Place the tip of the utensil under the cap and bend it outwards. Keep working your way around the bottle until you've loosened the cap enough to pop it off. Forks work particularly well for this since you can usually get the tines under the cap with ease.
