Ways to Reuse Plastic Containers

Wipe out dan­ger­ous wasps

 Those wasps have been get­ting a lit­tle too close for com­fort, threat­en­ing to bring your child’s out­ing to the park to a screech­ing halt. Take a plas­tic con­tain­er and fill it with water sweet­ened with sug­ar. Cut a hole in the lid. Wasps will be attract­ed to the water and crawl inside, trapped.

Keep ants away from pic­nic table

 You watch help­less­ly as the ants march up the pic­nic table leg, onto the table­top, and into the pic­nic meal. Here’s a fool­proof way to stop them in their tracks: Place a plas­tic con­tain­er on the bot­tom of each pic­nic table leg. Fill with water. The ants won’t be able to crawl past.

 Use as a portable lunch dish

The next time you go out for a hike, pack a por­tion of food in a plas­tic con­tain­er. Also great as a kids lunchbox.

 Orga­nize your sewing area

 You’re sit­ting down at your sewing area to start on your craft projects. But instead of sewing, you’re hunt­ing for that extra bob­bin or the right-col­or thread. Plas­tic con­tain­ers can help you bring order to your sewing area. Fill sev­er­al with thread spools, oth­ers with imple­ments such as seam rip­pers and mea­sur­ing tapes. Yet anoth­er can be filled with pins.

 Clear up your cupboard

 Plas­tic con­tain­ers with lids are great for food left­overs, opened food pack­ets and for clean­ing up children’s play areas. They are fan­tas­tic for hold­ing pens, pen­cils and oth­er craft objects your chil­dren like to play with. Eas­i­ly labelled with a vivid mark­er pen that can also be eas­i­ly stacked in cup­boards to max­i­mize space.
