That coffee is just so photogenic. Foamed milk and a decaf espresso.

Look at this lovely little stainless steel double wall insulated mug. It was sad lonely and disgusting lly caked with old coffee grime. I snagged it from the "is this yours?" pile at work and did a thorough cleaning. First with soap and water on the inside and then my usual denture cleaner and boiling water soak. (Seriously denture cleaner is cheap, smells nice and is food safe. It is designed to get stains out of porcelain and plastic and stainless steel. Get some at the dollar store to clean your mugs and water bottles.) Inside is spotless. The lid needed... Special care. Disassembly required a drill. I had to drill out the plastic pins that held the 2 halves of the slider in place. One broke off. I'd intended to use a stainless screw to hold it together. Instead I drilled a hole and used a M4 bolt, a few washers and a nut all stainless, to hold the slider together. Before assembly I had to give the slider a complete clean. This thing was nasty. I mean proper gagging gross. Now it's got a cute little M4 hex bolt on the top and a little nut on the bottom. Too cool. I might need to art up the sides. Not sure with what though. #makersgonnamake #makergonnaupcycle #fixdamagedthings
