Everyone knows a plastic Solo cup when they see one. These colorful cups are perfect for all of your beverage needs of course, but did you know they carry some alternative uses too? When you are done drinking from a Solo cup, don’t toss it, reuse it! While you may not want to rinse and reuse it for drinking purposes, there are many around the house uses it is in fact still great for. Take a look below at 7 creative uses for Solo cups and never look at them the same way again.
7 Creative Uses for Solo Cups
1. Traveling snack cups
Solo cups are the perfect size and durability for taking snacks on the road.
Why? Because the cup will fit safely in your cup holder, holding your pretzels,
peanuts, or other snack of your choice in place while you drive.
2. Seedling starters
Poke a hole in the bottom of your cup, add some dirt, and you have a seedling
starter all ready to go, or should I say grow? Solo cups are the perfect size
for getting your seedling started and when you are ready to transplant you can
easily toss the cup in recycling.
3. Jewelry cleaner
If you soak your jewelry to clean it, you can always put your cleaner in a
leftover cup and allow your jewelry to soak. This is better than putting the
chemicals in dishes you would later eat out of.
4. Dog food scoop
Toss a leftover Solo cup into Fido’s dog food bag so it is easier to dish out
his dinner each night. This keeps your hands from getting dirty and allows you
to grasp large scoops at a time. When it cracks, just replace it with another
5. Whip up some magic
The internet is full of tricks that can be done using Solo cups as your main
attraction. A simple Google search will yield dozens of tricks you can try. See
which ones you can master and put on a show!
6. Craft organizer
Rinse and dry the Solo cup and place some glue on the bottom. Press the cup to
a wide and sturdy surface such as a piece of wood. Toss your buttons, screws,
scrap jewelry, and other crafting items in the cup. You can even glue a whole
row of cups to the chosen surface and sort and organize all of the small
supplies and pieces you have.
Take a sharp object and poke holes either in a random pattern or a purposeful
pattern. Then, place a battery operated votive on the inside. The light will
shine through the cup and create a fun design on the walls too! These
luminaries are fun for small spaces, patios and decks, or even scattered
throughout the house.
See how fun and simple it can be to use Solo cups in new and exciting ways? So don’t pitch another one ever again, reuse it instead!
