Make Your Own Watering Can From a Laundry Detergent Bottle

Laundry Container Watering Can

Laundry Container Watering Can

This is the coolest idea!  I have looked at so many options for watering.  I have just been dragging my hose all the way across the lawn to water my little seedlings.  When I saw this, I was so excited!  So simple and So Frugal!

You can recycle laundry detergent containers! Instead of throwing away empty laundry detergent containers, rinse them out thoroughly and then recycle them for watering plants. Drill 1/8-in. holes in the top of the cap, and a 1/2-in. hole just above the handle to relieve pressure so the water flows freely.

    I’ve been saving my soap bottles just for that reason. Our Girl Scout Troop will be using them at our Community Garden
