Clorox 2 bottles can hold a lot of water making them a great watering can.


  • Clorox 2 bottle
  • drill with small bit (optional)


  1. It is very important to thoroughly clean the Clorox 2 bottle. Placed the empty bottle on it's cap overnight to allow any leftover soap to drain into the lid (I got an entire capful!). Then rinse it multiple times by filling it with water, putting the cap on, shaking the bottle, then dumping and repeating. Finally, run the bottle, spout, and cap through the dishwasher.
  2. Now your bottle is ready to become a watering can. Put the spout back into the bottle, fill with water, and water your plants.
  3. If you want, you can use a drill to drill holes into the cap, allowing the bottle to have a sprinkling option for more delicate plants!
