LOL! True. Came across this picture on Kludges site

It is amazing what people will do without thinking. I wonder if anyone has tried to wash their empty bottles in the washing machine?

I wanted to use mine as a centrifuge but my wife had a yeast infection already and I was scared to use her panty hose as a drum liner.



Ain't she a keeper?

When I was a kid, one of the neighbors used an old washing machine to process sassafras berries. He'd load it about 1/2 full of berries and water, then let it agitate to break the berries. He lined the tub with window screen, so when it hit the spin cycle the juice would be relatively free of pulp and seeds.
