DIY, whose entire form stands for ‘Do it yourself,’ means to create or redecorate something by yourself using whatever you have in hand without the help of a professionality is easier than it seems as we can indulge in our creative minds and make stuff that would have cost a ton to buy, on the other hand. In most cases, DIY is done using biodegradable or ‘useless’ things, which also helps clean the environment as we would have thrown these things away onto the atmosphere, causing pollution. This is a basic form of recycling that is also beneficial to the environment. One of the most common things used for DIY is plastic and plastic products, mainly plastic bottles. Plastic bottles are one of the most common forms of pollution in most countries as they are biodegradable, but many people are trying to stop it by making DIY products using plastic bottles, and you can make it too. Here is a list of how you can make DIY uses with the use of plastic bottles.
1.SUCKER FOR EGG YOLK
Some recipes use only the yolk of the egg, which sometimes makes it tricky to separate the yolk without taking any egg white. Using a plastic bottle as an egg yolk sucker is an easy and cheap way to separate the yolk from an egg. We need to crack open an egg, put the bottle’s opening on the yolk and then squeeze the bottle body.
This one is straightforward. We all need a vessel to water our plants and crops while gardening. So instead of buying some fancy water containers, we can easily make an unused, clean plastic bottle into a water container for our plants. We can also paint them to our likings, making it our very own custom water container.
3.STAND FOR JEWELLERY
Are you looking for places to keep your small but precious jewelry? Then take a plastic bottle, cut it up using a pair of scissors according to your liking and make a stand. A plastic bottle jewelry stand is what might save you from losing all your precious jewelry by keeping them safe all in one place.
So you have been trying to decorate your room by keeping some plants there, but you can’t because you cannot find a suitable container for them. Instead of buying a container, you can take a plastic bottle, paint it according to your liking, and put your plant there. This will surely bring some more ‘colour’ to your room.
Are you tired of watering your front lawn with your water pipe manually every day and desperately need a sprinkler? A simple solution to this problem is taking a plastic bottle, making some random holes in it, and running the water pipe into the plastic bottle. The water will go into the bottle and come out through the hole in the bottle, resulting in it acting as a sprinkler for your lawn.
6.FILTER FOR WATER
Sometimes, when we go camping or anywhere without a clean water source, we may struggle to find it if we don’t have water in-store. What we can do is, if we have a plastic bottle, we can make some tiny holes at the bottom and pour dirty water into the bottle. When the water passes through the holes at the bottom, the bigger dirt particles get stuck, and clean water passes through and is collected in a separate container.
