Rubber gloves is a good idea. If you don't have any a rubber band works too.

Thanks for your help. I'm happy to know I'm not the only one who can't figure it out. I found the perfect solution. The guy next door just twisted hard and pulled it off.

Do you have a pair of rubber gloves? Sometimes those can grip the lid firmly.

Hit the top edge of the lid on top on a set of stairs or counter. You risk breaking the lid, but it comes off real easy ;-)
(just be careful it's the top edge of the lid, otherwise you risk damaging the spray nozzle inside)

I often do this with spray paint cans.

I have the problem sometimes, too. I usually resort to using a pair of pliers or a knife to force the cap off. If there's an easy way I sure haven't found it.

I'm am so frustrated with these aerosol cans. I just bought a can of trader joes olive oil spray in such a can, and I cannot get the darn cap off. Aren't they supposed to have places to squeeze? This doesn't.
