    Yup, those little rubber sheets work remarkably well.

    If you tap round the lid with a knife handle or similar, that usually works.
    I use that method for all sorts of jars as I have rubbish wrists. You can even tap the lid against a work surface edge or table if you're careful  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Hot water worked perfectly.  The bottle must be too old to be childoroof🙂
    Thanks everyone  for suggestions

    I can’t get out of my mind the WW2 newspaper headline ‘Eighth Army push bottles up Germans’.

    A bit like the headline from 5th January 1960
