10 Uses for Plastic Milk Jugs

Econobusters has a great article listing ten uses for plastic milk jugs. Here are some highlights:

Cut the tops off of plastic milk jugs, poke holes in the bottom and use them to start seeds.

Cut the bottom off and use as mini-greenhouses to cover plants. Remove the cap on warm days to let heat out and remove altogether when it gets hot in there so you don’t fry your plants.

Cut the bottoms off of plastic milk jugs and put them over plants you don’t want to hit when spraying weed killer.

One of the commenters, Beth S, shared this tip:

Using kitchen scissors, I cut off about 3? from the top, leaving the handle on. I line the container with grocery plastic bags (preferably smaller ones such as those holding produce) and place my clean little garbage container next to me while cooking meals for the day. It is so much more convenient to have my trash can just inches from, and on the same level as, my hands as I make the day’s meals. Tie up and remove the bag when full and dispose in main trash can. Tying up smaller batches of garbage also makes them smell less while waiting for garbage day.
