Introduction: Multi Purpose Recycled Scoop

Picture of Multi Purpose Recycled Scoop

I've being using these scoops for years, and now you can too,It's easy to make and very multi purpose. Just get yourself a 2litre plastic bleach bottle, I say bleach bottle because these tend to be thicker than other containers and you should go for the one's with a handle

Step 1: Mark the Plastic Bottle With a Marker

I used a permanent marker but I've also used a pen,pencil, or nothing (just cut it)

Step 2: The Cut

Using the invisible man and a pair of good scissors cut out along the marks OR just guess where to cut.

Step 3: One Into Two

Now you have cut out your rough scoop, just trim it up to get rid of bad cuts,um and to get that perfect shape

Step 4: Peat

As you can see it's very good at moving peat type stuff out of the sack/bag to where you want it. Her in doors (TERESA) says it,s good for putting soil onto seeds she has just put in the drills.

Step 5: Who Needs a Watering Can

Now if like me you have stuff to water in the garden like pots and baskets you can use this, it's easy to lift up to a hanging basket and you dont waste water.SHE just said....(her that has to be obey'ed) ...now that we have a kitten she use's it as a poop scoop in the litter tray''''UH.

Step 6: The Leftover Bit
