Bottles--Beverage (Glass)
  • Use an old beer bottle as a candle holder--the wax dripping over the side will make pretty designs. Keep an eye on it to make sure nothing burns. (Jon)
  • Fill a clear glass bottle with small candies.
  • Make a wine bottle into a vase.
  • Use a larger wine bottle as a bank.

Bottles--Beverage (Plastic)

  • Fill with water and freeze. They make nice "blue ice" for coolers--especially longer trips. Don't forget to leave room for the expanding water.
  • Give it to your puppy. It becomes a (noisy) toy! (My Dog)
  • Make it into a vase. Partially fill it with marbles, stones or something fairly heavy to keep it from tipping. Then paint it to match your decor.
  • Fill with colored sand and use as a doorstop.
  • Use to make your own bottled water.
  • Use large, sports drink bottles as pitchers for juice at home (Glamour Gal).

Bottles--Food

  • Ketchup, mustard, etc bottles make cheap, short-range squirt guns.
  • Use old plastic bottles (such as syrup bottles) for storing homemade ice-cream sauce or other homemade food. (Rae)

Bottles--Hair Spray

  • Use the cap and an index card to trap spiders and let them out of the house.
  • WASH thoroughly and fill with homemade window/glass cleaner.
  • WASH thoroughly, fill with water, and use for misting plants.
  • Fill with soapy water and keep by the area in your house which has been infiltrated by ants. It is messier than traps, but safer than poison.

Bottles--Hand Cream

  • Refill the smaller sized bottles (the sample/travel size) with hand cream from your house and keep in it your purse or take it with you when you travel.
  • Fill the smaller sized bottles with aspirin for your purse, book bag, suitcase, etc.

Bottles--Household

  • Use detergent, fabric softener or shampoo bottles filled with USED motor oil for lubricating drive chains. (Nick)
  • Fill glass cleaner bottles with soapy water and keep by the area in your house which has been infiltrated by ants. It is messier than traps, but safer than poison.
  • Cut the top part off of a liquid laundry detergent container. Use the main part as a pooper scooper and the top portion as the pusher. Empty, rinse and reuse. (Barb)

Bottles--Mouthwash

  • Use the lids as reusable "paper cups" for the bathroom.

Bottles--Perfume/cologne

  • Fill with colorful liquids and give to children for playing "store." Be sure that children don't stain their clothes with the color. (Tschuege)

Bottles--Shampoo

  • Make it into a vase. Partially fill it with marbles, stones or something fairly heavy to keep it from tipping. Then paint it to match your decor.
  • Remove the cap, cut off the bottom, and use it for a funnel.
  • Refill the smaller sized bottles (the sample/travel size) with hand cream from your house and keep in it your purse or take it with you when you travel.
