Fur Lined Kitchen Sink

Consider this: a fur lined kitchen sink. How is it practical, you ask? Exactly! It's not. Nothing says "I have so much money I don't need to use my kitchen sink" more than a kitchen sink that is lined with fur. Any use at all will make it look absolutely disgusting, so the only way to keep it looking good is by never using it. If you're never going to use it, why on earth would you have a sink at all? Well you can't just NOT have a kitchen sink, duh.

We can take this one step further: removable fur sink liners. Once a fur lined kitchen sink becomes a recognized status symbol (as it inevitably will), people will want to fake them with removable liners. That way you can still use the sink, but cover it when people come over.

If you can't afford Otter [AusCan531, Oct 05 2017]


       Makes sense for a $70,000 room that people never use.

       Welcome to the Halfbakery, [mace].

       What might actually be feasible is a duck feather lined sink.
mylodon, Oct 03 2017

       Feather lining would at least create the possibility of a market for "sink preening" products.

       What [normzone] said.

       Put on your electron scanning goggles, turn up the magnification and all sinks are probably furry.

       Sometimes the fur goes on the outside of a vessel, as in Meret Oppenheim's game changing work entitled "object". I make a pilgrimage to see this piece every year, braving the rest of the dismal trash in cargo cult land. (see link and bow down)

       Ha! My sink is lined with otter fur. Beautiful AND practical.
AusCan531, Oct 04 2017

       //otter fur// [+] and seal, of course.   

       Certainly better than having everything that goes into the sink come out smelling of wet dog.
FlyingToaster, Oct 04 2017

       Up next: the wood-lined oven, the sealed washing machine, and the cardboard shoe.

       Muskrat fur also works well in cold, wet conditions. [link]

       A sink that improves when you wash your hair in it, thus shampooing and conditioning; caution urged during dye jobs.

       Indeed - you must save a lot on heating bills. Put cold water in, take otter water out. Brilliant.

       This has gone further then most sink ideas. However, i doubt it would do as well on the market if referred to as a hair lined sink which i think it can be said many of us already own.

       For the reech and famoose, it's the pre-furred style.
Sgt Teacup, Oct 05 2017

       Nanotech materials may make it a reality. Who knows!. ( Nobody believes they are 'who' right?)
