How to Open a Bottle of Wine Using Just a Piece of String


If you need to open a bottle of wine but don’t have a corkscrew nearby, Instructables user Saul shows us how to get that cork out using just a piece of string and a bit of knot-tying.

We’ve tried to open a wine bottle with a shoe before, but found it was a bit more difficult than advertised. If you’re having trouble getting that cork out, you might try this method: just pop the cork down into the bottle and tie a nice figure eight knot at the end of a string. Dip the string in the bottle so that the knot is under the cork, and slowly use it to nudge the cork up into the neck of the bottle. From there, you should be able to pull on the string and bring the cork right out.
