Remove one of the tougher looking keys from your keychain, then force it into the cork diagonally. This will require some serious pressure, so you might want to use your shirt or a rag as padding.

For this wine bottle opening method, you will need a long screw, a screwdriver and a fork. First, you’ll need to screw the screw into the cork with a screwdriver. Then just use a fork to pull the screw out. Voila!
This method of opening a wine bottle requires a shoe of any kind. Just place your bottle in the shoe and slam it against the wall. Sooner or later the bottle cork should pop out.
