Wrestling with tins and jars is tough

How I agree with the comments made by Jean Laird (Mail, June 19) about trying to open a tin of corned beef.

You need the strength of a lion to open tins and jars these days, especially bottles of bleach, when trying to press the sides to release the nozzle.

I know they have to be child-proof, but I’ve nearly broken my fingers!
