You Can Hack Your Fridge To Dispense Wine!


This 28-year-old blogger just turned water into wine. 

Wish you could turn water into wine? Well, one woman just did. 

Clare Potts, a 28-year-old fashion blogger from England, figured out how when she hacked her refrigerator to dispense wine instead of water. 

The genius discovery came shortly after moving into her new house with her boyfriend, Joe. 

She told Buzzfeed, "We ordered [a new] fridge and Joe said it came with a wine cooler section and I said, 'Or we could put it in the water dispenser.' It seemed to make perfect sense."

Apparently a lot of people agree with her — her post has been retweeted over 70,000 times, and commenters are lauding her as "Person of the Year."

She did have two pieces of advice for those who want to replicate the idea: drink the wine fast (before it oxidizes), and wash out the water dispenser after finishing. Seems like pretty sound guidance!

This dispenser hack might be a little much to use all the time, but it's a great idea for parties. We can think of a few other drinks that would chill well in the water dispenser... How about you? Tell us in the comments!
