What can things be recycled / re-purposed in the house?

If you want to create something useful from something recycled, you may be surprised at the number of items you can reuse creatively. Even a simple plastic bottle can be turned into a garden sprinkler, a bird feeder or a shower!

So, do not assume that the only possible destination for an object is garbage. There are creative recycling projects for dozens of everyday objects, including (but not limited to) the following:

·         Glass Bottles
·         Plastic Bottles
·         Rolls of Paper
·         Clothes
·         Plastic Pots
·         Caps
·         Egg Boxes
·         Shoe Boxes
·         Old and Damaged Tiles.
·         Bottle Caps
·         Corresponding Tubes
·         Cd and Dvd
·         Bulbs
·         Christmas trees
·         Carpets

This list is not exhaustive. However, it gives a good idea of the number of things that have many uses other than the original purpose.

1.    Tissue boxes
There are hundreds of smart ways to reuse a tissue box! If someone at home is sick, you know you will have scarves. Avoid dirt (and cracked sprouts!) By plugging an empty tissue box into a new box with a piece of string. This makes it a convenient place to remove used fabrics when in use. There are endless craft options and excellent storage containers. Just cut the top of the corners, wrap it in drawing paper and decorate it with a ribbon or rope to create great containers for spice packs, office equipment, and more.

2.    Egg Boxes
Egg boxes are ideal for freezing individual portions: meatballs, pasta, pies, homemade butter, and so many other uses. You can also use the boxes as a solid gel. They are also a great way to prepare the seed for your garden.

3.    Shower Curtains
Whether you're improving your bathroom decor or having a shower curtain that has seen better days, this old shower curtain still has many uses. Bathroom curtains are a great way to get off the beaten track to reuse appliances. They can be used as a table top for picnic tables or as a canvas to paint.

4.    Envelopes
The transfer of dry ingredients from bags into sealed glass jars helps keep them cool, but transferring them to containers can be a problem. If you do not have a small funnel at your fingertips, use an envelope. Cut a generous portion of a wedge, then cut the tip and wrap it in a cone. For larger quantities, use large, brown envelopes.

5.    Sink Drain
If you are willing to oust the old drains or if you only have extra fillers in a drawer, the drain channels for the sink are very fun do it yourself a tool that can certainly be useful beyond the duty of the antenna. Create your light tea planting accessory by placing a knitting needle with a perfectly flat base on top and indicated for planting, but you can use everything you need to act as a "support."

6.    Plastic Bags
You already know how to store the plastic bags contained in an empty paper roll. Now is the time to use the bags, as they can serve as an excellent substitute for shopping bags. If you collect enough, the plastic bags are an excellent packaging material instead of those terrible ones you end up buying at the mall. They are also excellent for preventing the spread of flour and sugar on all shelves of the pantry.

7.    T-Shirts
It is believed that there are 13 million tons of clothing in landfills in the USA. Even an incredible amount of donated clothes ends there. Instead of playing old shirts, reuse them. Cut the fabric into squares at the size of the towels to make reusable cleaning cloths and drying sheets. You can also cut the sleeves and collar of the shirt, cut the stripes along the bottom bar and join them to create reusable shopping bags.

8.    Cupcake boxes
The Canned Jars decoration is a children's game with cupcake wraps and is available in all colors and patterns. Invert two (for opacity) and place them in the bottle. Wear an elastic to hold them in place; Tie with a worn cord or ribbon, then remove the elastic.

9.    Containers or Cans
Glass and metal can be easily recycled, but why not reduce excess packaging and waste for reuse? Glass bottles and old coffee pots are great containers for shirts, table organizers or bathroom bottles. And there are 1001 ways to use them. Even many brands of pasta sauce use bottles that are ideal for preserving food.

10.    Toothbrushes
It is assumed that toothbrushes should be replaced at least every three months, as recommended by dentists and manufacturers, so you will probably get a lot of them. The most common use of old toothbrushes is cleaning the house; it is also perfect for rubbing surfaces, and their size allows them to reach inaccessible places. But there are many other uses for old toothbrushes, including some that help in other recycling projects.

Conclusion

Although we avoid the use of disposable products, this may sometimes be necessary. Always extend the life of these objects to the limit. Most disposable items can be repurposed if handled correctly. When it comes to household utensils, your life is limited only by our imagination. Look for creative ways to reuse/ re-purpose household objects to store, and decorate your house. By using these tips to reuse household items daily and create your own, you can significantly reduce your family's contribution to landfilling our country.
