Sometimes You Need a Hand
I can’t tell you how often I have to ask my husband to open a jar for me. There’s just something about that twisting motion that my wrists just don’t like. Not only did I buy this gadget for myself, but I also bought it for my grandma because she’s always complaining about jar opening struggles.

It gets deep into the tissues and relieves those knots and aches.

Dish Soap Without the Mess
One of the things I hate the most about dish soap is that it tends to leave sticky residue everywhere because the bottle never quite seals up, that’s why I went hunting for a great soap dispenser like this one.
