Easy hack to open your soda cans

TikToker @jordan_the_stallion8 stitched a video to another TikTok, that asked viewers about something they found out later in life that they should have known earlier.

The response by Jordan included some illuminating information about soda cans as well as an unbelievably easy hack to open them.

Jordan explains that the circular bottom of soda cans with a slight ridge is shaped that way to keep carbonation intact. But it could also be used for another crucial purpose.

Jordan explains,

When soda cans were created in 1958, they didn't look like this. You want to know why?
These soda cans are multi-purposeful, meaning that you can stack one on top of the other. It's not a coincidence why they all stack so perfectly on top of each other.

He then proceed to show how you can stack a soda can on top of another, and use the soda can above to open the soda can on the bottom.

Jordan elaborates on it saying its the best way to open your soda can if you don't want to mess up freshly manicured nails, or simply if you find opening soda cans with your hand difficult. He says,

If you just got your nails done [and] you don't want to mess them up, or it hurts your fingers to try to open them by themselves, just take a soda. Put it on top, and open it with another soda. Try it out.

For this hack to work, the bottom ridge of a soda can need to be perfectly aligned with the soda can on the bottom. Then raise the soda can on top such that its bottom ridge latches on to the bottom soda can's pop tab. As you pull the top can, the bottom can will open with the pressure.
