Never Knew That, Life Hacks, and Clever Ideas

Lots of stuff on YouTube. Some good ideas, some dumb. Some useful, others laughable..........

Post any good ones here and share.




And.......... just for kicks. Ignore the click bait. It ain't there. Okay, 8:35

Holy Hannah Barbera, I've been looking high and low for a replacement kitchen sink strainer/stopper. The one I have leaks. This is not the basket itself, but the strainer. I push the fucking thing down and it looks like it's working, but five minutes later, the water has emptied out. The strainer is no longer available, which means I have to replace the whole thing. I've purchased all these universal fit, fancy stoppers that are guaranteed to work, but none of them work on my sink. I've been living with it - one out of five tries does the stopper actually stop the water from going down the drain.

Today, I was washing recyclables in the right side sink. The water isn't draining. I look quickly at the drain and there isn't anything blocking the sink hole............. or was there........

Sure enough there is a clear plastic thingy in the hole. It's one of those plastic covers for disposable sauce cups. Hot darn. I try it on the left sink and it works! I know, use saran wrap, but this, for some reason, feels like a better solution. Better than saran wrap making its way into the plumbing. Not all kitchen sink baskets are the same size or shape. And, not all sauce cups are the same size, but the one I have is a perfect match. Now I have to go back to Mogu on the Drive and get more chicken karaage to go, lol.


Update: Sad to report that after three hours, the water level went down one inch, so not leak proof. Oh well, time to replace the whole thing.

Hahaha, coincidentally, I'm in the same boat.

A piece of silicone or rubber, laser cut to exact specifications should work.............

I know. I'll use the strainer itself to make a reverse mould, then use that to make the stopper out of Plastidip or something else like food grade silicone.

I just saw that "Most Oddly Satisfying Compilation #24" again, and that outfit the chick wears at 8:35 is definitely oddly satisfying. I had forgotten about it. Almost like that shiny, tight, blue dress a cute chick wore, as mentioned during our Operation Rev Nose night in downtown Vancouver. Waving thanks with a gorgeous smile to nice guy, MG1, for letting her cross the busy street to get to the train station on time. The way she pranced across the street - still etched into my mind.
