Take an unused Keurig cup and place it in the drain. A great temporary solution that works like a charm!

This doesn't make sense. What the purpose of putting the k cup in the drain?

I'm an old bachelor who loves seedless red raspberry jam. I never buy regular seeded raspberry jam.

The house I am at doesn't have the disposal stopper. I like to do dishes with a full sink of water so this posed a problem. Then, I realized that a tall glass works wonders.

Put a plastic lid over the drain then fill a glass or cup with water to weigh it down and set on the lid. It should stay in place long enough for you to do dishes, and the water not leak out. I just did this yesterday and it worked fine.

As temporary sinkstoppers, I have used clean dishcloths, clean washcloths, clean, small towels, but only temporarily, as the water will eventually leak out. Depending on how crammed you get them in the sink drain, they could last for minutes, or hours.

Find a solid (one without holes, that is) jar opener at the dollar store, it's flexible & big enough to do the job!
