The Right Tool for the Job!

October 12, 2012

Is it not amazing how such a simple tool can save you so much work? When I was starting my wine kit the other day I could not find my Bag De-Capper. What is a Bag De-Capper you ask? A Bag De-Capper is a small plastic tool that takes the yellow cap off the bag of juice/concentrate in your wine kit. Just slip the Bag De-Capper under the lip of the yellow cab, twist your wrist and boom off comes the yellow cap.

Hmmm… what were my options? I could pry it off with my fingers but that usually results in sore fingers and bent fingernails. A Screwdriver? That would only hurt a little bit if I jabbed myself with it. I could slice the bag open with a knife… but that’s a pretty big potential mess if I miss the pail…

Fortunately, I found my Bag De-Capper while looking for a suitable option.

Use the right tool and save time!
