Fact: Tiny House = Tiny Kitchen.

Fact: Tiny Kitchen = No Storage Space.

Fact: No Storage Space = Needing to Stack Things

Does this describe your kitchen situation? It does mine. I don' thave alot of cupboard space so I have to make the most use of what I do have which means stacking plates, cups, bowls, ect. Occasionally when I put away a slightly still damp glass or cup it gets stuck together. And it seems like no matter how much I pull or tug or try and rip those cups apart they are determine to stick together. Here's a little trick to getting them apart!

Fill the inside glass up with ice. Then either run the outside glass under hot water or stick it in a bowl of warm water. The heat will cause the outside glass the expand slightly while the ice makes the inside glass shrink allowing you to pull them apart!

Drinking from plastic isn’t a great idea…but great tip.

love my big plastic cup… I only use it for cold water. Plastic is bad if you heat it up, fine for cold.

Is this a good way to un-stick glass glasses or just plastic? I’m thinking it could cause the glass ones to break.

I’m thinking just plastic glasses.

It should be fine for glass also, just make sure the cold it on the inside.
