4 Reasons to Rinse and Reuse Squirt Bottles

Stop cooking oil drips
Tired of cleaning up the oil spills around your kitchen? Fill a cleaned, recycled squirt bottle with olive oil or another favorite cooking oil. It’s a lot easier to handle than a jar or bottle, and you can pour precisely the right amount of oil over your salads or into your frying pan without having to worry about drips or spills.

Substitute for a baster
If you can’t find your kitchen baster, or one that’s in working condition, a cleaned squeeze bottle makes a great substitute. Simply squeeze out some air first, and use it to suck up the fat from your roasts and soups. You can even effectively use it to distribute marinades and drippings over meat.

Put the squeeze on condiments
Recycled squirt bottles are great for storing condiments and other foodstuffs that are typically sold in jars — such as mayonnaise, salad dressing, jelly and jams, or honey. In addition to having fewer sticky or messy jars in your refrigerator, you’ll also be lightening the load in your dishwasher by eliminating the need for knives or spoons. Make sure you give the bottles a thorough cleaning before using.

Let the children play
Fill up a few clean squeeze bottles with water, then give them to your kids to squirt each other with in the yard on those hot summer days. It will keep them cool while they burn off some energy.
