Tips
Things you can do with egg cartons
With a dozen handy compartments, egg cartons are natural organizers for small items.
- Cut off a four-section piece of an egg carton and leave it on your dresser to sort your spare change.
- Sort buttons, safety pins, threads, bobbins and fasteners on your sewing table.- Sort washers, tacks, small nuts and bolts and screws on your workbench.
Start Fire
Fill a cardboard egg carton with briquettes (and a bit of leftover candle wax if it’s handy), place in your barbecue grill, and light. Egg cartons can also be filled with tinder, such as small bits of wood and paper, and used as a fire starter in a fireplace or a woodstove.
Can use for an ice tray.
Star Seedings
An egg carton can become the perfect nursery for your seeds. Use a cardboard egg carton, not a polystyrene one. Fill each cell in the carton with soil and plant a few seeds in each one. Once the seeds have sprouted, divide the carton into individual cells and plant, cardboard cells and all.
Put an opened empty egg carton at the bottom of the trash bag to prevent tears and punctures.
