How to etch measurement markings on the inside of a kettle. This is really helpful if you're doing batches of things like candy or homebrew. The tutorial shows just how easy it can be and it looks pretty good too! http://ow.ly/BOPmJ
This hack is easy and safe — use a 9V battery, vinegar, and salt to permanently etch designs on pots, pans, or any other metal surface you'd like to mark.

*How to add permanent volume markings to a kettle*

I wasn't originally going to post this on here but it received such an overwhelmingly positive reaction on reddit (becoming the most popular post of all time in /r/homebrewing and the 3rd most popular post of all time in /r/DIY) 

Here are the reddit links.

They point to this imgur album (http://imgur.com/a/dCvS5) which has the instructions.

Science!

Doctor Who fans: Karen Gillan (Amelia Pond) at 1:54 and 1:58 if you pause it at the perfect time.  This is the role she shaved her head for.
