How to open a bottle of wine with a wine corkscrew?
Wing corkscrew is the most common tool for opening wine in our homes. It was designed in such a way that you do not have to put too much force into the whole process.
Remove the cap from the wine, then screw the screw into the cork, being careful not to puncture it. The wings will automatically go up. Then lower them while pressing down. The cap will slide out automatically. It should be slightly pulled up to get it to the end.
How to open wine without a corkscrew:
Insert one scissor blade deep into the cork, place the other one across and start spinning. By unscrewing the cork, at the same time pry it slightly so that it goes up.
Take off your shoe, put the bottle upside down and beat it against the wall with a heel until you remove the cork. If you have holes in your socks and are ashamed to take off your shoe, you can plant a book instead.
Place the bottle on a hard surface and push the stopper inside, e.g. with a marker or toothbrush. To make it easier, you can first pierce the cork with a thin skewer. Unfortunately, the taste of wine can be a bit “cork”.
Everyone’s favorite gadget. It will be a godsend when there is no corkscrew at home. Gently screw it into the cork, just like a corkscrew. Pull lightly and it’s ready!

How to open a bottle of wine with smokeye?
Just hold the bottle of wine well, use a knife to cut the protective foil three times. Then screw the crush screw into the cork carefully so as not to break it – the liquor cannot come into contact with metal. We pull out the cork, preferably at once.
