Can-openers are a lot like bobby pins or your keys – you can never find them at the exact moment you need them. That, of course, leads to a lot of frustration and nervousness that could have easily been avoided.

There’s nothing worse than getting home after a long day at work, having to make dinner in less than twenty minutes, and not finding that can opener you need to open a can of tuna, stock soup, or tomato sauce.

Well, to avoid getting angry the next time you can’t find the can opener when you need it and having to order pizza instead of cooking a decent meal, check out the video below by the CrazyRussianHacker. As it turns out, there’s actually an easy way to open a can without a can opener.

In a nutshell, all you need to do is place the can you want to open on a rough surface first. But you know what? Better watch the video instead. You’ll find all the steps you need to follow explained so that you won’t have any trouble putting them into action.

You won’t believe how simple this actually is! Definitely wished I’d knew this sooner!
