Making Your Own Pot Scrapers

A bunch of pot scrapers cut from recycled plastic.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

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