How to take off a really tight Ring

If your finger becomes swollen, a ring can act as a tourniquet, cutting off the finger’s blood supply and putting it at risk. But don’t go cutting off your wedding ring quite yet. If you can’t get your ring off, all you need is a simple piece of string and this easy trick:

 

1. Take the string and weave it underneath the ring.

2. Wind the string around the finger in circles just past the knuckle

Pro Tip: Make sure there's no big space between the string on the finger. 

3. Take the string from the side closest to your wrist and PULL!
