5 Things to do with a Plastic Soda Bottle

Use it as a sprayer
Add a spray pump from an old cleaning bottle and use it to spray plants, yourself, or your little brother.

Use it as a yarn holder
Cut off the bottom of the bottle and insert yarn, pulling a strand through the top opening, then tape the bottom back on.  This will keep your yarn from rolling across the room.

Use it as a plant/seed starter
Cut off the bottom and fill it with soil, add seeds and water.  Reattach the top with tape. Keep in a warm place and wait for the seeds to germi nate.

Use it as an ice pack
Fill a bottle with water and freeze it. Use it in a cooler or in a lunch box.

Use it as a funnel
Cut off the bottom of the bottle and turn the top side upside-down — funnel!
