|The Fantastic Solution|
This is the most amazing quick fix I have ever seen. In fairness, first let me say it is not my original idea, secondly I have gone back and searched and cannot find where I first originally saw this awesome solution. We all know that we are supposed to store our beloved Stickles upside down. I have seen lots of manufactured solutions, most are very pricey and also quite a few have come across many homemade versions, none that really seem great to me. Well, that was before I saw this! Fantastico!!!! Brilliant!!!! Stupendous!!!!. You get the idea. I am super thrilled about this. This version of the upside down storage of our beloved Stickles is made with plumbing parts. Who would have ever thunk it???? For the smaller bottles (original size) you will need 1/2 inch coupling, for the newer size (just released larger bottles) 3/4 inch coupling. Coupling is connecter pieces for PVC piping, it is a straight joint! I bought a ten piece pack for under $2.00. I found mine at my local Lowe's, but sure Home Depot or any hardware store will have these on hand. Found in plumbing supplies department, I had to search a bit, but did finally find them. All I did was hot glue( Queen would be proud) pieces together. Because you did not cut a piece of PVC, edges are smooth and no sanding required. I did off set the pieces, thus more glue points. It is firm and heavy enough to be moved as a unit and stable enough to not tip. It is perfection. Easy to move by just grabbing and placing fingers thru open coupling. I have less than 12.00 in both of my two storage units!!! LOL~~~~~~~I see a rush for couplings all across America!!!!!!
