Please stop screwing around with it!

We’ve got two solutions for you to try instead. Firstly, a two-prong wine bottle opener. Its prongs gently slide down between the cork and the bottleneck. The damaged cork is then carefully extracted. The alternative option is to push the cork into the bottle with a spoon handle and decant the wine into a carafe. You can use a fine-mesh sieve to ensure that the taste isn’t tarnished by any cork debris.
