I wrote a post earlier this week about making your own household cleaners – the green way. Well now that you have all these great cleaners you don’t want to put them in an ugly generic plastic bottle that may be leeching toxins.
So we have a DIY for making your very own glass spray bottle! You’d be surprised at how easy these are, how cute they are and how inexpensive the project is.
- 1 glass bottle big enough to fit your nozzle – some good choices are Heinz vinegar bottles and Perrier bottles they seem to universally work
- 1 nozzle attachment
- Was your desired container thoroughly
- Make sure the labels are removed (because those aren’t cute, scroll down to see how to easily remove a label)
- If you’re using a spray bottle that was previously used in a different bottle make sure to get all of the liquid out by continuously spraying warm water through the nozzle
- Fill up your glass bottle with whatever cleaning solution you would normally use in a spray bottle
- Screw on the nozzle attachment
How to Easily Remove Labels
In case you didn’t already have an empty vinegar bottle laying around you can certainly empty one now that there’s yet another use for this stuff: white vinegar is fabulous for removing labels and sticky residue. Soak a rag in a mixture of vinegar and water (2:1 vinegar and water), then use the cloth to apply the mixture to your label or sticky area. Let it sit on the label for a few minutes so it has time to dissolve the glue.
