Utility Sink Rack

Reclaim some of the space over the utility sink in the laundry room. I have seen inserts for kitchen sinks, but couldn’t find anything for utility sinks. I discovered that an ordinary metal standing rack fit almost perfectly upside down in the sink; all I had to do was bend the legs back 180° so they wouldn’t stick up and could also grab the sides. The bending was done by hand. Wire shelving can also work with a little adjustment. The results have been great, this utility sink rack is very strong and easy to keep clean.

Trying to drill a hole in a ceiling can be a messy business! Next time, grab a small diameter disposable cocktail paper plate and drill right through it. The plate will then catch most of the dust and debris as it drops from the ceiling. Make sure to use a small diameter or clear plate, otherwise you’ll find it very hard to align your bit.

Summer is a great time to eat strawberries ala carte, or as part of a fruit salad. However slicing them can be a pain. Use a standard egg slicer to slice strawberries to make your prep time more “fruitful!” For optimal results, make sure you cut off the stem prior to slicing.
