The nuns made my grandmother change. She always thought when I got to school the nuns would make me change but they didn't. instead they made it "their mission" to make sure my letters all looked like a righty wrote them.

They haven't made people change their handedness in this country for a long time. I had a friend who grew up in Spain (he's probably around 40 now) and he told me his left hand was beaten in school until he switched. He was pretty mad about it!

I once found a measuring cup at an odd lots store that had the measurements printed backwards so you had to read it from the inside of the cup. Maybe something like that would work for you.

Not to endorse any specific product, but Pampered Chef has a measuring cup without handles. It's dual use. One side is for dry ingredients and the other for liquids.

I have it and I love it, but don't put it in the dishwasher or it will become difficult to get apart! Trust me, I have to have my hubby take it apart now every time I use it.

Yeah, you can only put the outer part in the dishwasher. I love it, though, especially when measuring peanut butter of mayo! Soooo much easier

Yeah, you can only put the outer part in the dishwasher. Still, I love using it for peanut butter or mayo. Soooo much easier
