Those are all good and simple tips Storm.
I like the burning crayons but # 26 doesn't really work.
Wimpy people like me need a channellock to get jars open. ^_^

​I find that knocking the rim on the counter top works well, a couple of hard smacks on the base of the jar works too.

​I've tried that and running it under hot water. It sometimes works but not always.
Channellocks are safer than shooting the top off the jar. Less risk of eating glass that way.

Channellocks! Awesome.

I have a couple of those silicone mat gripper pads that open everything. They were freebies from a furniture store or insurance company or somewhere else.  Bed, Bath, Beyond and other stores have them.
