Kicking It Up a Notch

Sometimes I drink my tea from a mug. One thing that annoys me is that after a wash cycle in the dishwasher, there is always a small puddle of water on the bottom of the [upturned] mug.

Well, the clever people at Ikea have come up with a solution: a small notch on the bottom rim of the mug that allows pooling water to trickle down the side. Now, how simple is that??!!

I just returned from a few days in Chicago for my Dad's memorial service and saw these mugs at my aunt's house. I think she told me they cost fifty cents or something like that. Well done, Ikea!

That *is* a great design idea (leave it to Ikea), and I am happy you had a safe trip to the memorial service and back. Welcome home!

Again, I can't believe the stuff you find! I haven't given much thought to the water sitting on top of the cup really. But then again my teenage son unloads the dishwasher as part of his chores. :) He only moans about how many teapots he has to put away.
