Have you ever noticed how college students always seem to have beer, but never have a bottle opener?

When they do have a bottle opener, it’s almost always a) incorporated into their keychain or b) imbedded in the bottom of a sandal. How do I know this? Because I myself spent a solid semester or two alternating between the paper technique and using the dorm-issue dresser drawer to open bottles.

Let’s face it. From time to time, we’ve all found ourselves in a situation where we have a bottle that needs opening, and nary a bottle-opener to be seen. Whether you’re attending a disorganized summer party, or you just really crave an old-timey cream soda, you definitely want to be the girl with the solutions.

Nothing makes you the life of the party faster than being the only person who can grant access to the drinks, so it is really worth having a couple improvisational tricks up your sleeve. Or, more accurately, neatly tucked away in your handbag.

Yes, that’s right. This is a video that will teach how to open a bottle with just the items you can commonly find in your purse, up to and including: your phone charger, a tube of chapstick, and an eyelash curler. You don’t even have to be prepared, you just have to have a few basics to save the day!
