Pool noodles make great Simple Solutions. This one involves using it as a water hose to fill buckets that won’t fit in the sink or under the faucet.

Next time you need to fill a water bucket that’s too big to fit under the sink or tub faucet, try this trick:

  • Take a pool noodle and slip one end over the end of the faucet.
  • Take the opposite end of the noodle and place it in the bucket.
  • Turn on the faucet and water will flow through the noodle and into the bucket.

This Simple Solution is particularly helpful when you don’t have hot water at an outside faucet, and you’re preparing to wash your car or dog.
