These cute gloves are available at Bow Regards for $26.

    I usually take the handle of a metal fork and strike all around the lid, hard enough to dent it. About a dozen strikes are enough for the lid to screw off easily.

    I like to put a rubber band around the lid for extra traction – it works every time for me. That is, when my boyfriend isn’t around to perform his masculine jar-opening duties.
