No more flying garbage can lids
Are you tired of losing your garbage can lid? “Hinge” it to the barrel with zip ties. Drill 6mm holes for the ties and double them for extra strength. The lid will flip open and stay attached to the barrel. You’ll never have to search for your lid again! Smart, right?!
Gym bag odour control
Throw a few silica packets in the bottom of the bag to soak up that gym smell. Or you can make your own silica pouches. Just wrap a generous scoop of silica crystal kitty litter in a piece of breathable fabric and tie it shut with a zip tie.
Improvised caulk gun
You can improvise a caulk gun instead of buying yet another one. Just zip-tie the tube of caulk to the bar of a trigger-style clamp and stick a wood scrap in the tube’s end to act as a plunger, dispensing caulk as you squeezed the clamp’s trigger.
