If you have a bunch of empty film canisters, you've probably asked yourself before:
"What should I do with all of these?"
In this Instructable, I'll be showing you how you can reuse empty film canisters to make popsicles.
Quick, easy, and there's no mess to clean up.
Step 1: Gather Your Essentials
- toothpicks, coffee stirring sticks, cake pop sticks, or anything else strong enough to hold up the popsicle
- empty film canisters (as many as you'd like!)
- duck tape
- beverage of some sort (I'll be using Hubert's Raspberry Lemonade. This was not a mistake.)
- clear plastic wrap
Step 2: Wash Your Canisters!
"To protect the film from contamination, Kodak quality standards require that the insides of the containers must be exceptionally clean. No “toxic” materials leach out or off gas from the containers themselves.
[...] Newspaper and magazine articles have mentioned “toxic residues” in the containers which might come from the film. There are none. The chemicals in a roll of film are embedded in the gelatin emulsion layers (about as thick as a human hair) and do not rub off the plastic film base.
[...] In summary: There are no “toxic residues” in Kodak film containers [...] if a customer chooses to use a Kodak film container for other than film storage, the container first should be thoroughly washed with soap and water."
With that being said, let's get to washing.
(don't forget the soap)
