Step 4: Dish Scrubber Attachment

When you are done cooking, your drill can even help you clean up. All you need is a simple dish scrubber attachment. To make one you will need the following materials:

A large binder clamp
A 1/4 inch bolt that is at least 1 inch long
A 1/4 inch nut
Two 1/4 inch washers (optional)
A Dish Sponge

Start by drilling a 1/4 inch hole in the back of the binder clamp. Try to keep the hole as centered as possible. Insert the bolt through the hole so that the threads stick out of the back of the binder clamp. Then tighten a nut on the bolt (add washers if desired).  Clamp a sponge into the binder clamp and the dish scrubbing attachment is complete. Make sure that there is no point where the binder clamp might be exposed to the dishes. This can quickly scratch up and ruin a dish. Insert the dish scrubber attachment into your drill and you are ready to clean dishes with more power.

<p>I've used the wisk many times in a drill when I needed to mix a protein drink real quick, and getting the blender out, then cleaning it, etc. would've been too much work</p>
You are a genius! I'm following you.
How about a hammer drill for meat tenderizing? Wiener schnitzel in seconds!
love it!
When I was a grad student, I had to clean out many Erlenmeyer flasks that were used for plant cell culture. These had a stubborn &quot;ring&quot; of dried plant cell suspension that took a lot of scrubbing with a bottle brush. <br> <br>I cut the handle of a lab bottle brush and chucked it into a cordless drill to clean the flasks. This worked extremely well. Too bad someone else already invented the &quot;Spinbrush&quot;.
I've done the pepper grinder before, for grinding seeds . . . it made me smile every time that I used it. (It did wear out though).<br> <br> I've never got round to it but I'm sure that a pencil sharpener could be adapted.<br> <br> Nice Instructable.
I've done the mixer/wisk in a cordless drill many times, never thought of the scrubber though !
