How do you drain tuna from a can?
Open the tuna completely, then take the lid & put it back on the tuna can to fit in (inside), hold it with your fingers of one hand both sides of can (thumbnail on one, the rest on the other side) so you can flip it (tuna won’t fall), the oil/water will fall & the tuna will be drained.
How do you open a can without a tab?

What can I use if I don’t have a can opener?
If you have a little time, we‘d say the easiest (and safest) way to open a can without a can opener is by actually wearing the metal on the lid down by rubbing it with a metal spoon, then using the spoon’s edge to break the rest of the seal.
What can I use instead of a can opener?
That’s right: You can open a can with only a metal spoon. Even if you find yourself without a can opener, you likely have a metal spoon in your kitchen. This simple hack is fool-proof. It may sound ludicrous, but with a little friction, the metal of the spoon thins and cuts through the metal of the can lid.
Which is better canned tuna in oil or water?
Tuna packed in water has a milder flavor and fewer calories than oil-packed, so if you need a can for your everyday tuna salad on rye, water-packed works fine. For the best flavor and a richer texture, look for tuna packed in olive oil.
Should you drain canned tuna?

How do you open a soda can silently?
Place the can on a towel on a table. Press down with your palm near the meaty part of the thumb on the opening of the can, leaving the tab visible. With the other hand gently pull up on the tab while providing a seal on the can opening with your palm. The seal should break without much noise.
How do you open a soda can without it exploding?
To make sure your soda bottle doesn’t explode when you open it, just slowly, slowly, so, so slowly open the cap. Turn it a little crack, and you’ll hear the hiss of gas escaping. You might even notice bubbles roiling below the surface.
How do you open a can with scissors?
How To Open A Can With A Pair Of Scissors: Keeping the blades of your scissors closed initially, place them point-down on top of a can next to the lip of the tin. Make sure one hand holds onto the scissors‘ handle so they can‘t slip. Then, using the palm of your other hand, tap the scissors to pierce the can.
How do you open a can with a spoon?
As demonstrated in the video above, just push down with the tip of the spoon against the inner edge of the can and start rubbing. In a short while you’ll penetrate the lid and you can carve around the can with the spoon’s edge. It’s certainly not as elegant as a can opener, but it’ll do in a pinch.
