Surprising Uses For Everyday Products

9. Can Opener
Have you ever gotten a new set of ear buds or bought a small electronic gadget that's sealed in a plastic case? Those cases are often incredibly hard to pry open, and can hurt your fingers when trying to do so with scissors. Give your hands a break and use a can opener instead. 

Put the manual can opener against the edge of the packaging and turn. It will slice into the plastic packaging and will open it right up. No more wrestling!
