At my apartment in Bangalore there is a strange problem with the bathroom sink.
It is situated too far away from the faucet nozzle. When you turn the water on low, it actually flows directly onto the edge of the sink. 50% of the water ends up in the drain and 50% of the water ends up on the floor.
Even with the water at full flow, the stream barely makes it into the bowl, and as soon as you put your hands in the water, a good portion of it gets splashed out of the sink and onto the floor.
Well, the problem was pretty easy to solve actually. Want to see how? After the link.
Cutting the top off a 1 liter water bottle I wrapped it around the faucet, taped it in place, and viola – – No More Spillage!
No, I know it’s not a beautiful solution, but it’s incredibly simple, easy to put together, cheap, and best of all – – effective.
I have to admit that I enjoy the poetic connection – – using a container designed to hold water as a tool to direct the flow of water.
