Tonight, after hunting for a very specific screwdriver and not finding it and trying various objects as substitutes (with no success whatsoever) I decided to figure out a way to organize them.
My criteria were:
1) I didn't want to spend any money.
2) I wanted to use something I had on hand.
3) I wanted to see all the options, different sizes, etc.
4) I wanted to make it easy so when I'm in the middle of something and tell my kids, "Go get me a Phillips screwdriver," they can find it easily.
5) I also wanted it neat and orderly and confined to one space.
So, after a little thinking here's what I did.
I got three plastic cups (left over from a Christmas party, so they are bright red) and stacked them on each other.
Step 1: Heat the tips of the screwdrivers, one at a time. I kept my regular and Phillips in different piles. Start with the biggest one. Depending on the size, it took between 20-50 seconds. Note: Heat the whole blade, not just the tip. If it is a wedge-shape, make sure to heat the edges where it flares out.
As a bonus, all the heating means I have the most germ-free screwdrivers in Tennessee.
I used clear for Phillips head and red for regular.
