COAN.NET How to Drain Cans:

WHY Bottom open cans:

1. Empty cans are much less hefty and cheaper to ship. 2. Cans complete of liquid deserve to explode or leak as soon as it gets too hot/cold, or the acid of the drink might eat through the deserve to. 3. Having holes on the bottom - still lets you display the can, and also it will certainly look unopened up & mint sitting on a shelf. (Look nicer)

Ways to open up a can.

One Small hole in bottom - You can take a nail or screw and also make a hole either in the bottom middle, or off to the side of the have the right to. With just 1 hole, it is harder/sreduced to empty than if you have 2 holes. (Pros: Looks nice since hole is on bottom) (Cons: Can be messy as drink explodes through first hole, and via small hole extremely slow-moving to drainpipe.)

4. Two tiny holes in bottom - Same as the 1 hole, have the right to use a nail or screw to make 2 holes - usually near the exterior rim of the BOTTOM of the have the right to (not sides). This allows for easier drainage as one hole the liquid will certainly escape, the other the air deserve to acquire in. (Pros: Looks nice since holes are on bottom) (Cons: Can still be messy when the hole is initially made.)

5. *** MY WAY *** - Use a church essential to make 2 holes in the bottom. The holes are bigger then the ones made my a smaller sized nail/screw, however tright here are a few good reasons why I execute it this method. (Pros: Rapid, takes me 30 secs to empty & clean out a can -- No waste, I have the right to quickly drink the soda -- Clean, via the slightly bigger holes, it makes rinsing the cans out less complicated -- Still looks the exact same sitting on a shelf -- And making use of an easy napkin/paper towel/rag, tbelow is no mess) (Cons: The holes are slightly bigger, however sitting on a shelf no one ever see"s them anyway.)

I made a quick video below of me bottom opening among my Big Red Transprevious Cans.

I"ve played approximately through various openers until I discovered my OXO SteeL Bottle Opener on Amazon, for about $7. Others that I had actually used in the past tfinished to bend, and also would certainly hurt my thumb if I was empting 20+ cans in a row.

Below is a snapshot of some I Bottom Opened a few years ago through a different opener.


IMPORTANT: If you decide to attempt to open up cans ANY of these methods, PLEASE exercise on cans you are not afrassist to mess up. Putting too much pressure, or slipping deserve to conveniently put a hole or crush component of a can if you are new. I never before have an problems currently given that I"m conftroble with what I"m doing, however if you are simply beginning to try among these techniques, again begin on cans that will not be a big deal if you accedently mess up.
