    The plastic prescription bottle caps can be inverted to make them non-childproof, they should implement that with other types of bottles too. But you'd still have to get it open that first time, I suppose.

    As for the lighters, nothing a pair of needle-nose pliers won't remedy, if you use Bic brand, at least. ;)




    Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

      you the first time, or the check-out clerk for OTC stuff (like aspirin...) but the OTC stuff doesn't come with reversible caps! just, like DeadHead said, the plastic Rx bottles!

      there certainly should be an option! lots of people, esp. older folks, have weaknesses in their hands that make the "child-proof" caps a problem.  

      and of course, they aren't. child-proof, that is.

      "real" work : a job where you wash your hands BEFORE you use the bathroom...

        she has arthritis pretty bad. She can't open any kind of glass jar. She even had trouble opening one of those plastic restaurant take-home containers tonight.

        And yeah, your suggestions would be perfectly workable. Pharmacists would be glad to help with that, I'm sure.
