This is how you bring about the downfall of corporate America. You build your own flyswatter.
Home Depot told me I could buy two plastic flyswatters for $1.49, which sounded like a great deal until I realized that it would be a half hour round trip to get them. Who has that kind of time, when there are houseflies running around the house. Which is why I made this myself.
All it took was a coat hanger (of which every household seems to have a million), a glue gun (which every household should have because they are totally COOL), and the plastic paddle cut from the bottom of a container of cherries. In an emergency a container of strawberries will suffice.
Don’t forget to poke holes in the plastic. You need to make your flyswatter aerodynamic.
