Who Else Uses A Banana To Prop Open The Dishwasher? Oh, Just Me?

We found out that when you run the dishwasher and microwave at the same time a fuse blows or the electricity-ma-bob clicky thingy outside has to be clicked back into place for things to work again in the kitchen. I don't know what it's called but it's super annoying. I should probably research this stuff before writing about it. Anyway, if you click the switch back into place but the dishwasher is still closed, the fusey-click-a-doodly has to be flipped again and it's this whole vicious cycle of running back and forth just so you can finish microwaving your damn frozen burrito. You have to prop the dishwasher open or unplug the microwave before you flip it. I have solved everything, guys.

 If you ever want to make your entire family roll their eyes at you, prop open your dishwasher with a banana.
Works like a charm.



  1. Bwaahahahha-- that looks like something I would do. I'm serious. It's the kind of shit that drives my son and husband crazy. I just remind them, "Love me as I am; not as you would have me be." And maybe you had better contact a patent lawyer to see if you can patent or trademark (I don't know the correct legalese) on your banana door holder. Door stop? Not sure of the correct term. Don't worry-- your marketing team will figure it all out.

    1. Yet one more thing I can sell in the future from my Etsy in the No Trade Jack shop. haha:)

  2. Just a few years ago this would have been considered strange or even crazy, but now we live in a time where tricks like this are called "life hacks". There could even be a book in this: A Hundred Things To Do With A Banana. Just make sure it's clear that it is family-friendly.

  3. That, my friend, is an AMAZING idea!
