Gaskets cut from egg carton styrofoam.Got a leak? Make a gasket out of a Styrofoam egg crate. I can't tell you how many times something is leaking and it's after 5 o'clock or it's just too inconvenient to run to the store, not to mention the expense.

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Cut the sides of the egg crate with either kitchen scissors or a razor blade into strips for easy keeping.

  5. Use either an X-Acto knife or small pair of scissors to cut the gasket in the shape you have traced.
  6. Use the gasket you have just made. Sometimes a single gasket isn't thick enough so you have to cut two.
