DO IT YOURSELF ENTRY ---PURPOSE: To enable a person with limited or no hand strength to wring out a face or dish cloth. The article includes diagrams showing two versions of a mechanism to remove most of the water from a cloth without requiring finger or grip strength. In one version, a metal plate with a 90-degree bend is bolted to the edge of a kitchen or bathroom sink. A second plate with drain holes is connected to the lower edge of the first plate by a hinge. A handle is attached to the second plate so that moving the handle causes the plate with drainage holes to press against the plate bolted to the sink. When a wet cloth is placed between the two plates and the handle is moved, water is squeezed out of the cloth and into the sink. In a second version, the drainage holes are in the lower part of the plate that is bolted to the sink, and moving the handle causes the second plate to squeeze against a wet cloth placed above the draingge holes.
