3 Other Ways to Use a Funnel

Make a string dispenser
Don’t get yourself tied up in knots over tangled string. Nail a large funnel to the wall, with the stem pointing down. Place a ball of string in the funnel and thread the end through the funnel’s stem. You have an instant knot-free string dispenser.

Separate eggs
Want an egg-ceptional egg separator? Try a funnel. Simply crack the egg into the funnel. The white will slide out the spout into another container, while the yolk stays put. Of course, you have to be careful not to break the yolk when you’re cracking the egg.

Make a kids’ telephone
Just because you choke every time you open your phone bill doesn’t mean the kids have to, too. Use two small plastic funnels to make them a durable string telephone. For each funnel, tie a button to one end of a length of kite string and thread it through the large end of the funnel. Tie another button at the bottom of the spout to keep the string in place and let the kids start yakking.
