How To Open a Can Without a Can Opener

Believe it or not, you can open a tincan with nothing but a metal spoon. With a little friction and elbow grease, the spoon thins and cuts right through the lid of the can. First, set the can on a steady surface and hold it firmly in place. Position the tip of the spoon against the inner lid of the can, in the groove where the lid meets the rim. Rub the tip of the spoon back and forth over a small area until the spoon rubs through the lid. Move on to another area until you've rubbed the spoon through the metal all around the rim of the can. As with all can opening endeavors, be sure to remove the lid carefully—the edges will still be sharp!
