The Paper Pulper(TM) is a water-based hand-powered "shredder" that completely macerates your papers into a pulp.
It's no cost
Uses no energy
Is nearly silent
Makes destruction of important papers accessible to the masses for identity protection, wherever you are.
Gives you material for craft projects.
Step 1: Make your container
Find a 1 quart plastic container or a metal can that has a plastic top.
Cut a slit then a hole in the top so you can easily remove it while holding your Pulper blades (aka an egg beater) stand in the middle.
