    The hose hanging of fthe edge of my brand new Mustee utility sink is just ugly. I've seen a couple options out there for this problem, like this:

    (reviews say that this doesn't work well at all)

    And, Mustee sells this attachment, which I'm thinking about:

    (I'm not sure how to attach a lint-catching device though)

    Does anyone have any clever ideas, or experience? Obviously, this isn't a big issue, just a cosmetic thing.

    Thanks!

    You're right, I should probably just do that. I will say that I am shocked with:

    - The amount of water that dumps out of the washing machine
    - The force of the water coming out of the discharge pipe
    - The amount of lint coming out of the discharge

    It might not be a bad thing to strain that water out before it goes down the drain!
