When we moved into our house I noticed that our dishwasher utensil basket was missing some pieces along the bottom, causing the silverware to fall through. Replacing the basket would cost anywhere from $9-$20, which I did not want to spend.
Using zip ties you can close the gap in just a few minutes and for only a few cents. Zip ties cost about two to three cents a tie, so repairing the dishwasher basket cost less than ten cents. That is a significant savings over replacing the basket.
What super cheap fixes have you done around your home?
