How do you open a tight thermos lid?
Giving your stuck lid ice bath can help to ease the greses and thus unscrew the lid faster. If there is still some liquid inside the flask, try to turn the tank upside down and tap it.

Why is my thermos so hard to open?

How do you open a tight Starbucks cup?
Every one of the lids on my “twist on” Starbucks tumblers gets stuck. I empty them out through the straw hole, stick it in the freezer for 2-3 minutes and the lid twists right off. Heat will make it expand and tighten the lid. Cold does the opposite, in my experience.
How do you open a stuck coffee mug?
Use a rubber band or rubber gloves to open stuck jar lids. Try placing one rubber band around the lid and another around the jar, then place your hands on the rubber bands and twist. You’ll hear that satisfying “pop!” in no time.
Fill your mug with a mixture of a tablespoon of distilled white vinegar and warm water. Let the solution sit for about 15 minutes, then rinse it out. You can also clean the lid by soaking it in vinegar and water.

How do you fix a warped Starbucks cup?
You can try putting it in the oven at ~160-200F while filled with hot water, give it an hour or three, then put the lid on. I have fixed plastic lids doing this, but there is a risk of the plastic shrinking, making it irreparable. Filling it with water should help prevent shrinking.
