I feel so hopeless! Ive been trying to open my Gatorade but I just can't!!! How do you deal with opening Gatorade Bottles? My fine motor skills are just not good, I don't normally care but nobody is home to open it for me and I already feel miserable not being able to do such a simple task...how can I make my hand grip better? I have tried to do exercises to make them strong but its not working as far as I could see...and I really want to drink my Gatorade now...sigh

My arms are weak now days and there are time I can't open things either. But if you just hit the side of the top on a table side a couple times it helps to losen it and then you can open it. Gatorade is very refreshing with all the goodies they have in it. GOod for you! Hope it works for ya.

Glad it worked for you. You get those grips too at the Mall. THe cookery stores have a round peice of plastic that has a grip on one side and you lay on the top of the jar or bottle and twist. That works good too. Tupperware gave some for hostess and game gifts too.

Sit the Gatorade bottle in the freezer and let it freeze... the fluid will expand and the bottle top will go pop! Then you'll end up with an ice lolly! Or you could just put a tea towel over the bottle, then grab and twist. The tea towel will provide more friction to allow for a better grip. It might be easier to twist the bottom of the bottle, rather than the top.
