OPENING THE BOTTLE Remove the foil Using the corkscrew’s knife (or a serrated knife), cut around the top of the bottle, right under the lip—turning the bottle as you go—to remove the foil. Screw in the wine opener Position the corkscrew in the center of the cork and twist in the spiral, turning it clockwise. Don’t twist it entirely into the cork—leave a bit of the spiral (the equivalent of one twist) showing.

CON’T OPENING THE BOTTLE Lift and pull the cork halfway out Place the corkscrew’s first bottle rest onto the lip of the bottle, and lift up the handle to pull the cork halfway out. Then place the corkscrew’s second bottle rest on the lip of the bottle, and pull again until the cork is almost—but not quite—out. Use your hand to pull the cork all the way out At this point, the cork should be loosened enough that you can work it out of the bottle with your fingers.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
