Household Hint Wednesday: Opening Plastic Cases

Imagine it, you've just bought the cutest new toy for your child, a nifty kitchen gadget, or a new bottle of perfume.  But, before you can have fun with your new purchase, you've got to fight it out of it's hard plastic clam shell casing.

In the old days, I would have just grabbed a sharp knife or a heavy pair of scissors, but then I found a quicker way: my manual can opener.

Slide the manual can opener over the edge of the clam shell, close tightly, and begin to turn the handle.  Depending on the thickness of the plastic, you should be open in one or two rounds.
