Someone needs to invent a slim spoon type thing to fish out the cork pieces. Then again, I'm probably the idiot for living in the old world still
using a regular corkscrew. Can someone explain to me why we're still using corks to begin with? I really just made this thread...
You made my cry to tears.
Just don´t screw it all the way trough the cork. It will come out.
A tip I discovered by accident. I have an old complicit cork puller with mechanics but I don´t bother about that. It has a long spindle that looks
like a round staircases winding up. However, it´s to long so I just screwed my first cork further on the spindle 3/4th of the length of a cork so
that the next one wont be punched through.
Now, that wasn´t the trick nor the real purpose. I found out, that when you are able to twist the cork in the bottle it comes out really gently. All
you need for this purpose is the second cork. It will lock against the first cork when you screwed it all the way in (/3/4ths of the cork). Just keep
twisting the handle until you notice that the cork in the bottle begins to move, then with slight upward pulling motion, remove the cork in a gracile
If it helps to explain this to a male, imagine the two corks as a clutch.
