Hi mums, I know I am showing my age at times, I have arthritis and generally slowing up but I am finding it more and more difficult to open some lids, caps etc.. Some laundry bottles that state squeeze at arrows and push down and screw/twist/turn in the direction of the arrow see’s me in a lather of perspiration and a look of desperation on my face. Only the other day I was having trouble getting the lid off a pressure pack can of Bosisto’s Eucalyptus Spray, this ended in giving up and asking my husband to help, and may I just state that even though he had success in the end, the start did prove challenging. Don’t get me wrong..I am all for the safety of children but I do however feel for the poor old pensioner that is gritting their teeth, flexing their muscles and pushing and turning in the direction of the arrows. Have you ever experienced trouble with opening items and do you have any hints or advice.
Love to hear your feedback. Until then I will just grimace, push, turn and try to learn.
