How Do I Remove Cork From Wine Bottle

This happened to me once before. A friend gave me a bottle of wine but I do not have a cork screw. And even if I did, it would not help. I am very bad at uncorking the cork. I know that there are ways to remove the cork without a cork screw. The last time it took me hours over a period of two days. Can anyone suggest an easy way to remove the cork?

if it can't go out, put it in!

You can find How To videos of it on Youtube. Just search for it.

Thanks for the info but I was able to push it in very easily using a small screwdriver and hammer. In fact, I am getting ready to have a drink.

I think you can use a knife to pull out the cork. I think it is little easy to pull out the cork using a knife.

That is what I did last March. It was very difficult actually. I have figured out how to do it easily. I used a small screwdriver and a hammer. And hammered the cork down into the bottle. It was very easy and took minutes or less.
