Over the weekend (May 17) I (Big Boy Chill) ran into a bit of an issue when my gallon jug of water became  inaccessible. I’m sure some of you have experienced this as well. It happens with milk and juice jugs as well, the little plastic safety ring breaks, and then you’re screwed trying not to damage the entire cap without making a mess everywhere.

I’ve come up with a solution, which sort of happened by accident when I attempt to use a pair of kitchen scissors to carefully cut around the cap. I poked a hole in the top of the bottle instead, and then I had an ah ha moment! Just put a straw in it. Not just any old straw though, one of those hard plastic one’s that comes with the heavy duty reusable straw. Problem solved. Watch my Instagram video below to see exactly of I solved my little problem. Ingenuity always comes in handy in my home.
