Glass Jars & Glass Bottles 43 Uses !

Glass Jars & Glass Bottles 43 Uses.
I hate throwing any thing glass away they all go in my kitchen cupboard they are so handy for so many things. My mum is the same, I must get it from her.
Here is a list of so many uses for them .
1. I store all my herbs and spices in jars .
2. Bottles make great rolling pins can fill with cold water when working with pastry!
3. When making jams,relish,pickle onions etc.
4. I buy my coconut oil in bulk and store in glass jars. I like using the Dolmio dip jars as you can get it all out easy as they are wider !Great for giving as gifts. I use a permanent black marker to cover the writing on the lid.
5. Glass jars make great vases for flowers and bottles look good with just one flower.
6. You can make snow domes.
7. Use them as memory jars fill with things collected on holidays eg shells,rocks,
8. When I make my lemon cordial I use bottles I have collected !  I give for Christmas gifts.
9. When making mint sauce / chocolate sauce.-
10. They make great tea light holders .
11. Make candles in the jar, cover with lid when not using.
12. They make great gifts filled with lollies brought or homemade.
13. Use for a money jar .
14. Give as gifts filled with cake or biscuit dry mix, plus instructions on how to make.
15. Make lovely herbal vinegars and oils.
16. Make bath salts store in lovely jars . Make nice gifts.
17. Use a bottle for a candle holder.
18. Make gift jars filled with what ever you like. girl ones filled with hair accessories, boy ones little cars/toys.
19. Make a great bug catcher. One for children to observe bugs up close. and one to use to catch bugs/spiders to take them back outside. I don't like killing things.
20. Big jars make great biscuit jars.
21. Use to store all your buttons.
22. Use to store sewing supplies eg sewing pins, safety pins,cotton bobbins.
23. Preserving fruit.
24. I use glasses for smoothies and juices, if you are full put lid on and put in fridge for later. Saves waste and spills and also you can add a little bit of water and shake to get it all out.
25. When making piklets or pancakes I put the left over mixture in jar or wide mouth pasta sauce bottle for using the next day just give it a good shake.
26. Make an ant farm with a large jar and cover with old stocking feed and water them .
27. Make a terrarium with a large jar.
28. Just for fun put a letter in a bottle seal and send it out to sea , put email address or phone number and ask person to contact you to see where it ended up . Could be lots of fun  !
29. Store any unused paint in jars that way you can see what colour it is , great for little touch ups.
30. I store my cotton balls in a jar in bathroom cupboard.
31. A tooth brush holder.
32. Use a large jar for sprouting sprouts.
33. Little jars are great for storing stationary supplies eg paper clips,drawing pins,elastic bands.
34. Use a jar to whip up whipping cream, just shake until done. Free exercise or get DP to do it. It really saves mess and washing up just pop lid on and put into fridge until ready to use.
35. This tip is any tin/packet you open and don't use all the contents ,store it in a jar I think glass is more healthy then plastic and saves using plastic wrap because you just pop lid back on and you can always see whats inside.
36.I also use a large jar under the tap of my worm farm to catch all that wonderful fertilizer.
37. I use the tiny bottles  for my rose water perfume, just add a spray top.
38. I 've seen people build walls in their house made from recycled wine bottles.
39. Make music, get a row of bottles or jars fill with different amounts of water, take a tiny super ball poke a skewer into it to make the stick to gently hit the bottles. great science experiment for children to do .
40. Make your own lantern fix wire around the top of jar then attach a handle made of wire put a tea light candle inside then you can carry it around like a lantern .Good if power goes out ! Or if you celebrate Halloween they may be great to make.
41. Use a glass jar to listen through walls, put it up to your ear. Another good science experiment for children to do .
42. Use a glass jar to soak your paint brushes in.
43. Clean  hair brushes and combs soak them in soapy water in a glass jar.
Well that's forty three fabulous ideas for using glass jars and bottles, please post and share with us any more ideas you have!


  1. I love reading your blog.I've learnt so much from it .Could you please tell me where I can buy coconut oil in bulk please ?

    Thank you Chris

  2. Hi Chris I usually purchase mine online from Hippocrates but it is $80 for 2 litres thats including postage.I'm going to purchase from this company next time
    its a lot cheaper.I've heard its good,if you do please let me know what you think !I've heard the coconut chocolate butter is to "die for"
    kind regards Sherrie :)

  3. Along similar lines to a few of your other suggestions, but one I thought was worth mentioning - a bit like a button jar, we keep a screw jar. Any left over or salvaged screws go in there, and when you need a screw to fix something there's no need to go out and buy a whole packet just to get one screw - just go to the jar and the perfect (or near perfect) sized screw is probably there :-) HTH.

  4. thats alotta ways to re-use jars! Just thinkin what I use them for im my place, screws, paint, safety pins, bandaids (coz the boxes they come in always get crushed), cotton tips, leftover baby food, hairclips... and I have a huge moccona jar on my dressing table full of watches ive built up over the yrs that need batteries, it actually looks pretty.

  5. PS you mentioned rosewater purfume... do you make it? if so... how? I bought some Jurlique rosewater spray, it was amazing during the summer months but its pretty expensive so I didnt buy it again.

  6. Hi Mrs K... I buy my rosewater either from the Asian food store or I buy it on line from the angry almond in W.A. its really cheap and lasts ages....The brand I buy is CORTAS and it comes in two sizes 300ml & 500ml and price is about$5.50 and $7.50 per bottle its distilled rose water and smells so sublte and lovely...and best of all not filled with lots of nasty chemicals... that are so bad for our health...thats why I don't ever wear perfume...Also I use the bottles for lemon cordial to give as gifts !

  7. Lots of fabulous ideas ~ thanks so much.

    I'm visiting from Transformation Thursday and am your newest follower :O)

  8. Fab ideas!! I love jars, bottle, anything along those lines!

  9. I went to your previous post about using jars for partly used onions, etc.Good idea. I hate using plastic wrap: bad for the pocketbook & worse for the environment. Thanks for the good suggestion.

  10. You really shouldn't release spiders outside. It's possible that spider is actually an indoor spider and has no idea how to surviv outside. You are essentially dooming those spiders to a long, slow death by starvation.

    The best thing is to leave them be, since they eat household bugs or use an organic repellant so they stay in the dark spaces.

  11. Indoor spider!? Are there indoor cockroaches as opposed to outdoor cockroaches too?

  12. What's up friends, fastidious post and pleasant urging commented here, I am genuinely enjoying by these.

  13. Choose glass containers that are in great condition, without nicks or damage of any kind. This is necessary for the safety and wholesomeness of any homemade jar gifts.
