Reuse prepper style
ok how useful can this really be. Well considering our dumps are filled with an endless supply (even with recycling) It can come in super handy.
Crafter's already do this to make beads and jewelry.
Some ideas that come to mind are:
- Make a mold out of clay to pour your plastic into and you can make
- Arrow tips
- Replacement parts on equipment
and making sturdy glass replacements by simply making a square frame to pour the plastic into.
Even make reusable mini green house covers to get an extra crop out of the fall season. (milk jugs can do the same thing these are just prettier :)
CROSSBOW BOLT TIPS
One other thing worth remembering if you have a pistol crossbow. When using homemade bolts made of wood the tips crush when shot at a target (as seen in the video on my post Click Here) BUT if you dip the tops into the melted plastic and hold it downward till it dry (fast drying) it will make the tip strong enough to use the wood bolts!
HOW TO MELT PLASTIC BOTTLES
Use scissors to cut the plastic bottles into small pieces. Make the pieces small enough to fit inside an old metal container.
