Every year my hubby and I use few of these in the spring, we use them to water our seed trays, just-up seedlings and house plants. They are so easy to fill, carry and pour, they don't leak or drip back down the spout like watering cans! The other handy thing about them is that you can make one with a super fine/gentle spray by using a small needle and one with a more substantial flow by using a bigger needle. I need one for my house plants so I'll be using a bigger needle for this DIY.
|Gather what you'll need, I recommend using lighter because you need to |
reheat the needle every second time.
|The needle I chose|
|Heat the very end for a few seconds|
|Pierce the milk bottle lid, being careful not to get your fingers in the way! Reheat and repeat, remember |
you can always add more holes after if there isn't enough water coming out.
You might look at your needle when your done and be cursing me but its OK just heat the needle again and wipe it on some card or paper a few times and it'll be back shiny and clean!
|This is what mine looked like when I was done|
|Perfect for small house plants :)|
We keep a 3ltr one in the greenhouse with a finer spray and this one in the kitchen, they last forever and when the bottle does get a bit old, just swap the lid to a new one! We go through so much milk in our house, I love it when we can re-use the bottles ourselves instead of sending them away to be recycled.
Happy spring gardening :)
