There is a saying that my mother often employs when I work on projects, "Out with the old and in with the new".  If I do not get rid of my old projects, there is no room for the new ones.  

Here is the one of the ways I've tried to do so by taking apart my old models of suspension and truss bridges made out of Popsicle sticks and Elmer's glue.

Step 1: Materials + Tools

To take apart the models, I used the following:


-Bucket with water 
-Dry Towel
-Dry Rag

***Keep in mind that these models were bonded by Elmer's glue which is easy to break the bonds with water.  Other adhesives might not be as easily taken apart and throwing away the model might just be your best bet.  
Nice idea, well done.
Thank you very much! I am a great fan of yours!
