I fixed my dishwasher's silverware basket for pennies




Sometimes the solution to a problem is a snap. Or maybe a zip to tie things up fast.

My dishwasher’s plastic silverware basket had sprung a few leaks. Actually, the grid work on the sides and bottoms of several sections sported gaping holes, where sharp steak knives and other utensils had poked right through the plastic.


I started looking online for replacement baskets for the dishwasher. A matching basket for my particular dishwasher was going to cost about $40. Ouch!


So I did what any other improvising individual might do. I grabbed some plastic zip ties and closed up the holes. (They really are just pennies apiece.) Then I snipped off the tails. And that was that.



It’s not all that pretty, but it works fine. And who’s looking closely inside my dishwasher, anyway?
