Waste bin or drainer for pod coffee maker capsules

homemade drainer for single-dose coffee capsules

I am going to teach you how to make a pod coffee maker waste bin that is extremely simple but very effective. It is so simple that I doubted whether to do a tutorial or not, because it is not a step by step, it is a single step. But I love these day-to-day solutions that anyone can do with everyday objects

But what is clear is that everyone who has a capsule coffee machine, in my case the Dolce Gusto, cannot throw the capsule in the trash for various reasons. Because we pollute and because it is emptying little by little and the garbage is dripping.

SIM card sizes. How to cut a SIM card

SIM card Sizes. SIM, mini SIM, micro SIM and nano SIM

This is a modification I made a long time ago, when I bought my old Nexus 4 and I needed to cut the SIM card. It may seem outdated because most new cards come precut but the truth is that many of us still have old cards and we can save a few dollars and with this hack.

And we will also use the article to talk and explain the sizes of the SIM cards.

I receive my Nexus 4 from Google. I’m going to try it and I realize that it uses micro SIM 🙁

The logical solution is to go for a duplicate SIM card, but they charge $5 (yes, it was free before) So you have to find a homemade solution and this happens to cut the card at home to convert the mini SIM into Micro SIM.

Aireless Tires wheels

Non-pneumatic heavy machinery Tweel wheels

This is one of those topics that I like even if it is not a DIY. It is not topical, since it has been talking about this type of airless wheels or non-pneumatic wheels for a few years, I think since 2002 approximately.

If you have never seen a wheel of this style it will impact you especially when you watch some videos and discover what they are capable of withstanding. I leave one for you to enter into matter. It’s from Michelin Tweel wheels.

How to start a beehive into a glass jar

ho to build a beehive

We have already seen how to make a DIY beehive and now I leave a modification or extension that we can make to a hive as a curiosity. The idea is to get a honeycomb in a jar or glass bell.

It is a very interesting science activity to show children. Although I have seen this product for sale, here I present it in a didactic way as a way to teach children and adults the ins and outs of hives.

How to make

I collect this information because the original page where it was published and that it linked no longer has the article.

The technique is very simple although we need to have a hive, of course.

Place a bell, with strips of the hive so that the bees begin their work.
