    Empty Chlorine Jugs - Trash to Treasure

    As a Newbie - I am overwelmed by the number of empty chlorine jugs I am trashing.

    While "recycling" is the immediate response to the question "What do you do with them?"
    I have to believe there are more creative "Re-Use" options.
    I have already made:
    • *Pots for plants
      *Rinse bucket for leaf strainer
      *Dog Food Scoop (rinsed out first)
      *Fertilizer Scoop (Marked so I don't use it on the Dog Food)
      *Hat for Tin man Costume for next Halloween


    Now I've run out of Ideas so,
    I welcome anyone to add either serious - or Humorous

    Do you have Purple Martins up there? Cut holes in some of them and you can have a Purple Martin condo

    The bottles go to the recycle, but I do save the caps!

    I make pretty good Memory Games.

    Two identical items get glued under 2 caps. When I have about 50 or so, the game is large enough to give away & I'm ready to start a new one. Already made several games.

    Time to ask this question again, a years gone by and I'm about to start piling up the chlorine bottles, surely some of you can add to our list.

    In Seattle they have an annual milk-carton boat derby; maybe you should start a bleach-jug version!
