A simple fix to make personal care easier, use an old wooden coat hanger (with the hook removed!) to extend the handle of a hair brush or comb.

Use plastic zip ties to fix the brush to the hanger, and use some foam tube to make the handle bigger.

Make spray bottles easier to use with a pair of scissor action salad tongs. This sounds like a great fix for people with arthritis, reduced grip strength or cerebral palsy who want to get involved with the household chores! Why not try it on some spray window cleaner?

Use a hacksaw to chop off the handle, and some hot glue or tape to attach it to the spray trigger.

A great fix for increasing independence – use small Sugru sausages to stick on buttons so someone with a visual impairment can find the button they want.

Here’s a microwave that’s been hacked with Sugru!
