A genius woman has turned her brand new fridge into her very own wine dispenser and we’re totally behind this awesome upgrade!
When Carol bought her brand new fridge, she didn’t see the inconvenience and stress that many of us associate with shopping for appliances – she saw an opportunity. By dumping a bottle of wine into her fridge’s water dispenser, Carol was able to give her appliance a new and frankly genius purpose purewow.com reports, and it turns out she’s not the only one…
A Lightbulb Moment
Following in Carol’s innovative footsteps, 28 year old Clare Potts had a lightbulb moment when moving house with her boyfriend. Speaking to Mashable, Clare said, “We’ve just bought a house and we’re in the process of buying all the grown up things we need…my boyfriend Joe was telling me [the fridge] came with a wine rack and I just said ‘why don’t we just put it in the water cooler?’ It seemed like the obvious thing to do.” If that’s not the ultimate #adultlife success story, I don’t know what is! Now why didn’t we buy a fridge with a water dispenser!?
The Perfect Christmas Trick
Clare is quick to point out that the upgrade requires a little bit of maintenance to keep everything tasting just right. “It needs to be washed out after though so it doesn’t get clogged,” she advised. “Oxidised wine is not nice, so drink fast!” And while they don’t use the dispenser for wine all the time, Clare said it will come in handy for special occasions, “Definitely for our house warming and New Years Eve.”
We don’t think there’d be any problem getting through whatever wine the dispenser can hold, especially with Christmas and New Year just around the corner- no more running to the petrol station for ice with perfectly chilled wine for your guests every time!
So whether you’re prepared to risk your pristine fridge for the convenience of a readily available beverage or not, we think there’s something totally genius about this little innovation – don’t pretend you aren’t tempted!
