To remove a bottle stopper that is stuck, mix 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1 teaspoon rubbing alcohol, and 1/2 teaspoon glycerin. Pour the mixture around the stopper and let it seep in for a day. Then remove the stopper. If it’s still stuck, try to encourage it by gently tapping the neck of the bottle with a wooden spoon. Some stoppers may be impossible to remove.
