To those of you who wanted a picture of my blender cup, the cup that I whined about not being able to get the lid off this morning, here it is.
It’s now been a couple of days. Thankfully the lid has the spout on it so I could get soap into the cup to try and stop it from getting moldy. But, as you can see from the the part where the lid meets the bottle, it is looking pretty grimey. If I can’t get this off soon, I’m not sure what to do.
The part that’s difficult is that the lid twists in inside of the bottle, whereas tradition bottles see the lid twist around the outside of the bottle. It works great to stop leaks. But, apparently I got it twisted on too tight. I’m just not physically strong enough to get this lid off.
I doused it in boiling water today and left it to sit for a half hour. Sadly, that didn’t work.
I also tried throwing it in the freezer (though I know that was stupid because the soap expanded, essentially tightening the lid, and I knew that would happen but did it anyway) for three hours.
I can’t get it off.
Such a stupid problem to have. But hey, here I am.
