It's magic

...Or physics or chemistry or something, but did you know that if you happen to open a bottle of sparkling wine and don't manage to finish it - I know, I say the craziest things - a teaspoon placed in the neck of the bottle - handle side in obviously. You'd have a devil of a time getting the head of the spoon in first - maintains the sparkle of the wine!!


Amazing huh??

Debs has been informing of this fact for months, and I've been sceptical I'll admit, but this week - tried it for the first time and, I'll be blowed, it actually works, a bottle of wine opened on Tuesday is still fizzy on Friday, 3days later. Marvellous!!

wow--thanks for sharing! My boyfriend and I were going to take champagne with us to central park last week but we didn't since we thought we wouldn't finish it all, and would then end up wasting it.

i did it once but only for 30mins, as we returned to the bottle. good to know it reeeally works, though.

Hi Blur Ting, Hi Tom, yep, it works. I was astounded :-)

I wonder if it's something to do with the metal? interesting.

Hi Kitty, I'm assuming it's something to do with the metal, I'm betting plastic spoons don't work as well :-)

I've always wondered if that trick worked! Good to know!

Wow, that's interesting :) Must be the metal in the spoon that adds some fizz to the bubbles

Hi Tyrant, I think it must be the metal too. Thanks for stopping by :-)
