Wine could be beneficial for your health

1. Using A Knife

This is one of the easiest methods; however, one should be careful while using the knife. Take a knife, preferably a big one and just jam the blade into the cork. Once it is done, twist it slowly and pull it upwards. There you go!

2. Using A Spoon Or A Key

If you wish to avoid sharp objects, then you can go for this method instead. Take a spoon or a key and puncture the cork at 45-degree angle. Make sure it's properly fixed and has a firm grip. Once this is done, twist it slowly until the cork is free.

3. Nail It Method

If you don't have a corkscrew, you can make use of a nail instead. Hammer the tip of a nail into the cork and slowly pull it upwards with the back of the hammer by applying a little force. The cork will eventually fall out.

So the next time when you have guests at your place; follow the easy methods given above and open the wine bottle like a pro.
