I like to re-use bottles from things I buy and often buy bottles specifically because they can be re-used rather than thrown away. Though, those bottles are often not designed to be re-used and are therefore not the easiest to clean.
For some reason bottle brushes are always disappearing from our kitchen. After one too many times needing one and not having it as well as not having time or inclination to run to the store for a new one, I decided to see if I cold just make one.
This is how I have been making them since. They do rust if you don't let the dry properly but being as they are made from small piece of kitchen sponge and a wire coat hanger in about five minutes, I don't mind just making a new one.
Step 1: Materials and tools
You will need
A kitchen sponge
A wire hanger, the complete loop kind. The ones with cardboard bottoms don't work as well
A screwdriver or maybe just a large nail
Pliers. I used my Leatherman tool for this one
