$17 Kmart soaking bucket hack every home needs
"This is awesome"
Contributor, Practical Parenting / January 12 2020
Is there anything worse than dipping your hands into a soaking bucket to remove items of clothing you've been pre-soaking for the wash?
It's cold, dirty and at times down right smelly.
There is a pretty amazing product on the market called the Strucket but it costs over $50, for what essentially is a couple of buckets.
Clothing washing is a thankless task that is never-ending. Fact. Add children into the equation and your washing only doubles.
The Strucket is an awesome Aussie product that combines a soaking bucket with a strainer.
Many a Mum has drooled over the innovative product but at close to $60 a pop, it can be hard to justify the expense for what is essentially a couple of buckets.
It didn't take long for clever Mums on Facebook page KMART HACKS & DECOR ❤ to come up with an affordable Kmart hack for the Strucket.
Sharing on the fantastic facebook page KMART HACKS & DECOR ❤, mum Mandi has shared her appreciation for the hack.
"🤩 A P P R E C I A T I O N P O S T 🤩 ￼
I’d just like to send a big shout out to the lady who posted this hack.
I too wanted a Strucket so badly, but could not justify the cost.
One of the features I liked about the Strucket was that you could lift it from the water and allow it to drain and lo & behold you can also achieve this with the Kmart containers by turning the inner bucket sideways and resting it on the lip of the outer bucket.￼￼ It also packs always nicely when you’re finished.
So a trip to Kmart today in search of these two tubs $17 total and one happy mama! 👌🏼"
All you need is a $10 stackable container and a $7 perforated tub and there you have it! No more sticking your hands into stinky soaking water!
Other followers were quick to share their excitement over the Strucket hack.
"Also great for recycling the used water as it can be transported to lawn or garden instead of down the drain", added one.
"This is one of the best kmart hacks I've seen", said another.
"I've wanted to buy a strucket for so long but couldn't justify the price. Thank you!", added a third
