While our lives are incredibly convenient these days, it's always a good idea to know a few survival skills. Whether you're an outdoors enthusiast or you're just stuck in a bad storm, you never know when knowing how to survive without modern conveniences could come in handy.
One essential part of being in a survival situation is a stockpile of canned food. That's where this awesome tip comes in. Heck, you may not even be in a survival situation - maybe you're just hungry and your can opener is broken. Knowing how to open a can of food without a can opener is a great idea. All it takes with this method from DaveHax is a little confidence, some upper body strength, and a spoon. Here's how it works:
- Grip the bowl of your spoon in one hand and the can in the other.
- Rub the edge of the spoon along the top of the can to create a groove, which you can puncture.
- Use the edge of the spoon to cut around the can until it opens up.
