Useless inventions.

I have a couple of the most useless inventions in my home. Water saving Olivery kitchen sink mixer and also the matching bath one.

It takes half an hour to fill a bath & over a few minutes to fill a saucepan aswell. Who's the genius that invented these ??

I guess they do save water tho, no one can be bothered waiting for the bath to fill, and has a shower, and in the kitchen, you'd rather cook something that dosent require water..

Best wishes

if you are sick of the water saving part of them, inside the nozzle that teh water would come out in, there is a restriction in them that is normally removable, take that out, and voila back to normal, ah the knowledge after working in a hardware store

That bloody Colour cure car polish, a waste of time and bloody money.
Does jack all and makes your rags coloured, plus after you wash yr car it comes off anyways.

lol yeah mate and why do they open at the back? much easier to have them all open at the front, (for both the wearer and the person attempting to remove it ) and more practical as well, you wouldnt have to remove the whole thing to have a bit of fun, just open the front and TA-DA, fun for all ages....
