Repurpose and Reuse Typical Household Items and Win Scott Naturals


Becoming an ECO friendly family means finding ways to re-purpose and re-use the items around our house that we typically toss out - here are 7 ones you may also like to try

Empty candle Jars
 
Re-use your old candle jars for bathroom essentials like cotton swabs and cotton balls or  toothbrush holders. Use your imagination for lots of uses for those used candle jars.

Egg cartons 
Re-use egg cartons for paint wells, seed starters, treasure boxes or other crafty ideas.

Baby Food Jars
 
Re-use Baby Food jars at dad's work bench to store screws, nails and other small parts. The smaller jars also make great spice storage containers when you buy spices in bulk.

Butter/Margarine Wrappers
Re-use Empty butter or margarine wrappers wrappers to grease baking pans. You can store them in the freezer by  folding the wrappers up and placing in a zip bag.

Magazines
Donate your read magazines to local hospitals, art classes and hair salons. Be sure to remove your personal information from the magazine first.

Phone Books
Re-use your no longer needed phone books to clean your windows with or as package filler and  fire starters.

Toothbrushes
  Used toothbrushes have many uses when it comes to cleaning from using for those difficult to clean items such as tile grout, around your faucets, window sliders, jewelry, baseboards etc.
 
What typical items around the house have you re-purposed and are re0using for something new and useful?
