Quick Tip: Turn Your Sink Into a Dishwasher

Posted by remistevens on November 6, 2009

Remi Stevens demonstrates a hands-free approach to washing dishes. All you’ll need for this one is a sink and your dirty – soon-to-be-clean – dishes. Remi Stevens’ “environmental” approach uses no chemicals, only water.

Jim Smetchland’s Rating D-
“Just a warning this is not recommended if you are the least bit ecologically concerned. Can you imagine how much water this wastes, are you actually recommending people do this? . . . . . I highly doubt this even works. . . . . You wore the same shirt last time, real creative guys!”

The Advantage of a Dull Knife

Posted by remistevens on July 17, 2009


Whoops! I slipped while cutting up an apple. No big deal though, luckily I was using a dull knife. Keep a sharp knife around, sure. There are some things only a sharp knife will do, but for everyday use you want the dullest safest knife you can find. I find cheap short serrated steak knives work best. You can get through pretty much anything with sawing, and its safe enough to use your own hand as a cutting board.

Have a home riddled with children or animals? You certainly shouldn’t have sharp knives lying around in convenient locations. A knife should be easy to get at, but safe to keep where you’re keeping it. Those special knives you use to cut jack-o-lanterns are going to be perfectly harmless if your child or pet were to swallow one.

Separate a pair of $1 plastic safety scissors. Your get 2 great dull knives for $1!

If you’ve only got sharp knives, and have no budget for the above suggestions. You can dull your knife by altering the angle you use on your sharpening stone. Keeping the knife perpendicular to the surface of the stone while you sharpen will give you a flatter, duller cutting edge. Also, if you need to, your knife can easily be dulled in the same fashion against brick, concrete or metal.

Many people who’ve never been stabbed, mistakenly fear the sharp knife. In illustrations they always put that little star by the point of a knife to make it look sharp and menacing. You’ll find, however, that getting stabbed with a dull knife is actually more painful. A sharp knife can be in and out its victim leaving only a smoothly cut entry point- the dull knife gets a bit messy. Think how intruders might feel if they see you’re brandishing a dull knife- a seasoned criminal is going to know all about getting stabbed.
