At last – a solution for those messy kitchen cupboards! Why is it that saucepans and all their lids never seem to fit together neatly in one place? And why are they so hard to match?

Conquer the kitchen chaos with this easy idea for organising your pot lids. Watch this video and learn how to hang them from the back of your cupboard door.

Anyone who spends any time cooking will tell you, organisation is the key to a calm kitchen.

With a little help from Sugru Mouldable Glue, you’ll be able to spend less time hunting through a jumbled cupboard and more time preparing the perfect meal. And you’ll be able to match lids to the correct saucepan quickly and easily.

Step 1

Pack of Sugru divided into 2 big pieces and 1 small piece

Open your single-use pack and divide your Sugru into 3 pieces (2 big, 1 small).

Step 2

*Depending on the thickness of the application, for load-bearing projects, allow up to 48 hours for Sugru to fully set.

Sugru is ideal for this project because it sticks to surfaces you'll find in your kitchen, like ceramic, steel and wood without the need for drilling. And because Sugru is removable, you can always take your hooks off again if you ever move home or buy new pans.
