For those of you who have asked about my glass spray bottles, a quick tutorial. (It's hardly a tutorial.)

I happened upon this by accident one evening when Ryan made drinks and I used the last of a bottle of cleaning spray on Ralph's high chair. What do you know, the two fit together! Bada bing, bada boom.

These particular recyclables happen to be a bottle of Canada Dry tonic water and Honest Company's Multi Surface spray, though if you do a bit of digging in your bin you might find other bottles that fit with other spray tops. You know.

Just give them a wash, scrub off any labels and remove any plastic bits, cut the spray tube to size, and fill 'er up with whatever you like! Water and lavender oil make a nice room spray, if you want to start there.

I do have one slightly larger glass bottle that I bought off Amazon, but why bother when you can use what you already have, and enjoy yourself a gin and tonic?

  1. Do you have any tips for getting labels off that cleanly? I end up with a gooey residue every time.

    1. The important factor associated with the glass is that it cannot be decomposed naturally like plastic and metals. There are usually two methods used to discard the glass. RS Glass bottle

  7. Having a glass spray bottle for your cleaning solutions is very efficient, since you can measure the contents with its transparent body, and you'll always know if and when you have to refill it already. It can also be used for any form of liquid cleaner, either the ones you contoct on your own or the ones you can buy at the supermarket. In any way, thanks for sharing that! All the best to you!

  14. Nice blog. My wife and I read it religiously and always enjoy your cleaning tips. Very interesting regarding making your own glass spray bottle. I hadn't thought of doing that before, but will definitely try to do so now. Have you been to HJSSupply.com? I found some good materials for this type of project on that site.

  24. After washing a bottle, lay it on its side for a bit.. you'll be surprised how much water ( or wine/ oil, etc) can be removed for recycling or repurposing. Great spray bottle idea.. looking for HONEST spray items soon!
