With the new year looming, chances are someone you know will be opening a bottle of bubbly this week. If you want to avoid the fizzy mess (and potential black eyes) that comes with popping the top, use a cloth napkin and gently wiggle the cork.
As tips blog PureWow demonstrates in the video above, the TV-friendly cork popping method adds a dramatic flair to your evening, but it creates a mess, fires a projectile around the room and, most importantly, wastes perfectly good champagne. By gently wiggling the cap, you can ease the pressure off slowly. Then, pour and enjoy your countdown!
