The Watering Can Hack That Uses Your Empty Laundry Detergent Jug
To create an upcycled watering can from your empty detergent bottle, all you need is a knife, polyurethane adhesive like Gorilla Glue, and water-resistant spray paint.
First, clean the bottle to remove any leftover residue before removing the pouring spout. Carefully cut around the rim of the spout with a knife and pry out the plastic rim inside.
Next, trace and cut out a hole for the spout. Use a knife to trace a circle on the top third of the bottle and cut along it, adjusting the size as needed.
Apply a generous amount of glue around the spout to prevent leakage and attach the spout to the bottle. Make sure to let the glue cure completely and dry out.
Trim excess glue spots and use spray paint to cover both the bottle and cap and leave it out to dry. Create a sprinkle attachment by making holes in the cap with a knife or drill.
Alternatively, you can cut a triangle-shaped hole where the handle and the neck of the bottle meet and drill holes in the lid for an instant watering can.
