I need to take off a tag without scissors. I also can't just rip it off because I have a broken wrist (which is also my dominant hand).
I'm ideally looking for something easy and around the house. Are there any tools to help me hack my life?

Speaking of this kind of tags:
Warming up the tag by any mean should work; however using water as well will be way more effective.
For example, if possible, immerse the object to which the tag is attached to into hot water; otherwise, pour some hot water on the tag using a sponge or warm up the tag by any other mean.
Either way, if using the hot water method, wait until the tag itself is impregnated and hot enough to come off with ease by gently lifting up the sides.
Warming up the tag works because the heat will melt the glue under the tag, leading the glue to lose strenght enough for the tag to come off; using water as well for some reason, IME, greatly improves the effectiveness of this method.
