Helpful hint: Use a can opener to open difficult plastic blister packs
FARGO – If you’ve opened a plastic blister pack (also called clamshell packaging), you know the struggle is real. The sealed-tight packaging is meant to prevent shoplifters from stealing gadgets and electronics, but it’s almost impossible for paying customers to get into. Scissors sometimes work, but it’s hard to use them without the jagged plastic edges cutting your hands and fingers. Kitchen and X-Acto knives are just asking for a trip to the ER. Fortunately, some genius discovered that a can opener does the trick with minimum mess and low risk of injury.
