Brilliantness in all its brilliancy

On Wednesday, Tara (roomie) and I went for a soaking wet slushy run (as Edmonton is finally warming up) then decided to make supper together. After a delightful little meal, I witnessed Tara doing this while we were doing dishes:


She's rubbing a wet plastic bag against the side of the cupboard. Are you thinking what I was thinking? What. the. heck. I questioned her about this, and she said that Marc (her boyfriend) taught her to stick wet bags to the side of the cupboard when they're wet, then when they dry, they'll fall down (something he learned in Africa?). BRILLIANT! I'm sorry I ever doubted, Tara, I am now converted to this special method of bag drying.

i am so glad that i read your blog. i love that idea! i always try and find places to sit the bags down on(upside down of course). Thanks for the tip. or i guess i should say, thanks for roommates that show us unconventional and useful tips.

Well it's not so great of an idea if the side of your cupboard is dirty. That just so happened to be my plastic bag. I was wondering why it was there when I got home. Now I know that Tara was the culprit!! I had to wash the bag again because it smelled funny. You guys are goofy.

Interesting trick, but I'm wondering what this does to the cupboard or wall paint job. The wall will be wet a lot and also will have to be washed more often. I'm hoping for an experts (Craig's ?) comments on this one. Dad
