To do this, all you have to do is wipe the lid of the jar clean of grease and sticky spots, if any. Then turn the canned food over and sprinkle a small amount of flour around the lid where it meets the glass jar. This way, tiny particles of flour will get into the cracks, breaking the seal and letting air in.

The flour acts as a dry lubricant, reducing the friction between the lid and the edge of the jar. As a result, the vacuum effect is slightly weakened, so you can unscrew the lid quite easily.
