Museum of unintended use

Wednesday, February 17th, 2010 by | Filed Under: Cool Sites

I think at some point in everyone’s life they have use a product for something other than what it is intended for. How many times have you used the ridges in your house or car key to cut or break a plastic connector tag off something you wanted to wear right away like sunglasses or a t-shirt? Or used the stem of an earring to unclog the superglue nozzle? Or used duct tape to make a wallet or belt? I think you get the idea.

This site is setup blog style and highlights exactly what I’ve been talking about; people using objects for things other than their intended purposes. There a lot of really ingenious ideas out there too! I know that I’m going to snag some to use in my own home should the occasion arise.

To navigate just scroll down the page, and once you’re at the bottom click Older Posts to move backwards in time to see the posts that came before! After browsing through I thought using a paint roller as a paper towel holder was rather clever!

Check out these unintended uses today! You might just discover something that you’ve done or could do as a solution in your home today.
