Just give your sink a measure and look at some of the colanders offered on the online shopping sites and you should find a match, even with an uneven sink.
Thanks!

I can't stand the cheap razors cause I always nick myself so badly.
I was using the men's Gillette Mack something. This razor did shave well but it didn't give me the silky smooth feel this womans one does. Someone on one of the daytime shows talked about how much she loved this particular Venus razor so I thought I'd give it a try and I'm now a devoted fan.
I use Venus Breeze. They are great, arent they?

Okay, face cream, sink colanders, razors--you guys are starting to cost me money!

I'm doing a deep clean on my house and how about those Magic Erasers? They are amazing for so many things.

HMG....I've only used the magic erasers a few times when my son decided he wanted to mark all over my chenille sofa....... I can confirm they did the job beautifully.

And yes texasG I love my razor in fact my legs are silky smooth as I type

JillB as far as the colander it sounds wonderful and I think I may have to look into one of those. Are the holes very big? I make a lot of salsa and used the canned diced tomatoes alot and always let them drain well. Do you think the holes will get plugged up easily?

No it's easy to clean for me. The one I'm using is fine mesh like a strainer but I've even seen collapsible silicone ones that store easily and fit in the DW. I don't think they stretch to different sizes for different sinks though so be careful.

I guess I'll give in and look for a photo similar to mine...

Okay, this looks nearly identical: http://www.amazon.com/Amco-Over-the-...6767785&sr=8-2

I think that would work perfectly and the stainless steel would go with my kitchen perfectly since I already have that in other areas of the kitchen. Thanks for sharing!

Ha ha I just realized I was using "DW" for dishwasher, but we use that for something else around here...

Which maybe made this sentence sound risque:

I'm not sure of the name, but I think it is called Flip & Fold--the thing they advertised for a long time, to fold T-shirts. That thing works great! Just like they show on TV. Also, another gadget they advertised heavily--the thing to bread your food for frying. You put the flour, crumbs, etc. in one part, put the separator (with holes in it) on, then put your meat, vegetables, etc. on, and close it. You just turn it over a couple times and everything is evenly coated. Sorry I can't remember the name, but it works great too.
