Have you ever thought of what you can do with all those milk packets which you simply throw in dustbin. Well we have a few ideas to recycle and reuse milk packets at home. Just remember to clean the packets with warm soapy water before putting them to further use…
Use it as an ice bag-Almost every home saves a pack of an ice bag in fridge for emergency use. It is useful in treating rashes, burn skin and is also known to be a useful beauty trick for open pores. But you do not have to buy one when you can make your own ice bag using a used milk packet. Fill a clean milk packet 3/4th with water and seal the edges with an electric sealer. Keep it in freezer and use it whenever needed.
Use it for growing plants– You can also use old milk packets to grow plant saplings which you can later repot in big pots. Remember to make a small hole at the bottom of the packet for drainage. You can use this idea to grow various kitchen herbs.
Use it while traveling– Milk packets can be very useful while traveling, especially while traveling to beach destinations. You can carry a bunch of them and use them to keep your used or wet stuff like undergarments. Before hitting the beach you can also keep your wallet and phone safe inside these packets to save them from sand and water.
Make home decor pieces– You can make home decor items like garlands or toran and even wall hangings and decorative flowers using milk packets.
Make tassels– You can spray color the milk packets and use them to make tassels for decorative purposes.
