Make a no-drip DIY watering can from a milk jug #Plants & Gardening#gardening#great-ideas Updated Oct 12 2015 (Posted Jul 26 2012) Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Photo via A Journey to a Dream Astra from A Journey to a Dream used this little trick to reuse a milk jug as a no-drip watering can. What you'll need: A lighter or matches Needles An empty, cleaned out milk jug Heat the end of the needle and poke it through the lid of the jug multiple times. You can vary the pressure of the water by using different sizes of needles. Watch your fingers! You can heat the needle again to remove any remaining plastic residue.

Offbeat home continues to make me joyful and feel stupid at the same time at an alarming rate. XD Reply This is all kinds of awesome. I need to make one of these when I start my container garden!! Reply We totally did this with a large size Simply Orange jug (wider lid, and still has a handle). Best watering can ever! Reply For this to really work, you also need to poke a small hole in the top of the jug somewhere, like the handle, so that as the water pours out, air can get in and balance the pressure.
