Was going to open a bottle of my own wine, and that once in a few hundred bottles thing happened, the cork went into the bottle.

I used the trick that I thought I saw on TS4M, but couldn't find it again so reposting or posting here.
Of course, few people would actually need to get the cork out of the bottle, but since I reuse the bottles to bottle wine, I need the cork out.
I used this trick, and it took me a few times, but I got the cork out of the bottle. It is now ready for washing (worse part of wine making) and refilling with my wine in the spring.

Oh, and the cork the guy used in the video is much easier to get out than a wine cork, but still it works.
My wife said I am the smartest guy she knows.:D

I have never seen that trick, I would like to see that done with wine in the bottle. BTW, The trick I had posted was uncorking a bottle of wine with a shoe.

the shoe never worked for me! Always ended up smashing the bottle LOL This tip looks useful though

I haven't seen that trick but if I am left with no other choice might as well try that.
