Reuse Dishwasher Baskets

You can repurpose the baskets from a broken dishwasher. Use the basket with wheels to easily move file baskets or craft and sewing supplies. Another use for a metal basket is to carry and store barbecue utensils in or store small gardening tools and gloves in.

Great way to repurpose something that might otherwise end up in a landfill. Thumbs up!

I just suggested to a friend who is getting a new dishwasher, that she take the silverware baskets out of the old one, and use for storage of screwdrivers, trowels and such. She said "That sounds like a thrifty fun hint!" So here it is. Your reputation is spreading.

You can also use the same item in your bathroom to store small bottles of shampoo, cream rinse, hand lotions, shave cream etc under the counter so it is out of the way. (09/17/2009)
