Use Film Canisters for Spices

When camping, place spices in empty film canisters. Once you get the campsite set up, poke holes in the lids for shaker tops if desired. Film canisters are also good for storing fish hooks, etc.

You might want to check if the plastic content is safe for food, thanks. :)

I agree with bpaddle. I was going to use a couple of canisters for vitamins, etc. when I was going on a trip but they had a chemical smell to them so I decided not to use them.

Never use anything for food that is not designed for food. Today's plastic has toxins in some of it.
