Free Pot Scrapers

Call me a nerd, but I have to admit that I get a little rush when I have used/created something useful from what otherwise would have been thrown away. :)

I lost my pot scrapers recently. Perhaps the kids confiscated them for a Barbie table, maybe they were accidentally thrown out. In any case, it struck me that I knew exactly how to get my hands on more without spending a dime!

Cut them from those sturdy, empty shampoo and conditioner bottles. I've always thought it was such a shame to just toss them, but unless you want to end up on the most recent episode of "Hoarders", you'd better make sure you have a good reason for keeping them. And now I do! I have to say they work great, and didn't even scratch my Teflon coated griddle.

These would also make completely free yet useful gifts for your friends. :)

PS: No special crafting skills needed!

Total Time: Less than 5 minutes

Yield: about 4 per bottle

Supplies:

Cost: Nothing

Steps:

  1. Using a Sharpie marker, trace your jelly jar lid onto your empty bottle as many times as will fit.
  2. Cut out your circles.

All done! :)

What a great idea. In a world where we buy everything, thanks for teaching your kids a good lesson on saving a dime.

Suggestion on your design: draw a curve on one side of your circle to make the shape fit in a corner.

Thanks for the tip cj wagz, sweet name by the way!:) Because of the flexible nature of the plastic, these scrapers sort of fold up like a taco and get those corners really well.

Thanks for the suggestion though, my ideas can always be improved upon and I enjoy others feedback.:)

What a great idea! Once you're done with the homemade scrapers, just wash them and toss them into the recycle bin!

Great idea! I've been quietly complaining to myself that my (ridiculously priced for what it is) pot scraper has gone missing. Now I know I have four of them, hiding cleverly in the form of an almost empty shampoo bottle in my bathroom! Have a good day!
