Making Your Own Pot Scrapers

Do you have empty shampoo or conditioner bottles? Make your own pot scrapers. This is an excellent reuse/recycle idea. They can be fun, free gifts for friends.

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


  • empty shampoo or conditioner bottle
  • jelly jar lid or other desired template
  • Sharpie marker
  • scissors

Cost: Nothing



  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! :)
