8 Disposable Household Products That You Can Reuse at Home!

You have a lot of stuff at home in one of the prestigious Rockwell condominiums, and you do not know which ones to keep and put away. Wondering what items you can recycle especially those disposable objects that are present in your midst. Yes, these items may come cheap and very much convenient but there is such cost associated with throwing all that material. So instead of throwing them out, you can still make use of those things in the most possible way.

Here are some eight things that we can think of:

#1: Plastic Cups

They are usually used during parties wherein you would really need for a whole lot of crowd as well, especially if you are living in Ayala Bonifacio Global City, where parties are really often. These items may be too overrated because they can be bought anywhere, yet they really come in handy when the time comes. If you have a lot of these at home, you can reuse them as containers for your sewing items or you can make a DIY project out of it. As long as it won’t include burning up, that would be all right.

#2: Milk Cans

These are good for plant containers as these can be displayed in your garden area. Put some holes at the bottom of the can to give in some air and to let the water out whenever you water your plant. You can also paint those cans according to the colors you want that would suit your imagination too!

#3: Soda Plastic Bottles

You can make use of these materials as another container for smaller items at home. And just like that of milk cans, you can use half of the plastic bottle as container for plants. Cut the bottle in half, crosswise and dump in some soil. Redecorate those plastic bottles with paint and some artsy ideas that you can come up with to make it look more presentable and nice!

#4: Ziplock bags

Some use ziplocks as containers of their food, some would use if for crafty stuff, safekeeping and other else. You can always choose to keep these bags and reuse them for further purposes. You can also opt to washing these bags and reuse them over and over again until they fall apart.

#5: Aluminum Foils

Tin foils can be reused to cover up items such as casseroles. But don’t you know there are other ways you can make use of these aluminum foils? If you are throwing in a party, you can always reuse foils as holiday decoration (especially now that the holidays are coming), use them scraper whenever you are washing your glassware (in place of a steel-wool soap pad) or as a wrinkle remover especially when you are ironing out those silks, wool and rayon clothes. You can even use these foils as funnels! Aren’t these amazing ideas?

#6: Junk Food Wrappers

If you are much into eating junk food, chances are, you will be throwing those wrappers away. But this cheat would give you more of an idea of how you could recycle these wrappers into—pillows. Well, the stuff inside the pillow instead of using the usual feathers or foams. You can make throw pillows out of them to save you from buying one and for you to be more creative and crafty.

#7: Plastic Cutlery

Those things that you get from taking out food from fast-food chains might be of great use to you in the future. If you have been keeping those things, well you might be able to use them on summer outings with your friends and family! Or you can make some DIY projects out of these such as wall clocks.

#8: Paper Coffee Filters

If you’re a coffee junkie and fond of brewing your own coffee, you would be using paper coffee filters. But what if you wanted to get rid of those but having second thoughts of maybe using it for another cause? Well, one tip would be using it (and the coffee grounds) in the base of a flowerpot. It will act as fertilizer and will also prevent soil from leaking through the drain holes and make a mess. With this idea, it would only save you from using fertilizers for your plants but you can also help the environment!

How about you? What items do you use more than once that might help others too? Share your thoughts!
