DIY Milk Jug Funnel Step 1: Finish your gallon or half gallon of Darigold milk. Rinse out the jug Step 2: Cut the bottom off the jug Step 3: Decorate and use!
Milk Jug Scoop Cut off the top of an empty gallon or half-gallon milk jug with sharp scissors. It helps to draw the cut line with a marker first. Clean up the cut to make sure there are no sharp or rough edges. Replace the jug cap and you have a handy (and pretty much free) scoop for pet food, potting soil, etc. Remove the cap and you can use the scoop as a funnel!

Homemade Liquid Laundry Detergent I also made the other night & LOVE!!! This recipe makes 1 gallon of detergent & you use 1 cup per load! 2 TBSP Borax 2 TBSP Baking Soda 3 TBSP Washing Soda 3 TBSP Dawn Dish Liquid Optional: 20 drops of Tea Tree Oil & Essential Oil of choice for scent (I used both) Boil water in a pan & add dry ingredients. Funnel them into your container (I used old milk jugs) Add Dawn then fill w/cold water (it will bubble some), lastly add oils! SHAKE BEFORE EACH USE!
Instead of working directly out of a gallon can of paint or a smaller but hard-to-hold coffee can, I use a chopped-down milk jug. Not only is the built-in handle a plus, but the container also does double duty. When I’m finished painting, I just remove the cap and set the jug on top of the paint can. Any leftover paint will drain back where it belongs.
