Because entering contests "locks" your projects to the site, you need to send an email to service@instructables.com and ask them to delete it for you.

Make sure you send the email from the same email account that is associated with your instructables account.

Which one do you want to delete and why do you want to delete it?

I want to del@ete the 'bio degradabe plant pot' because I want my instructable account to have instructables about electronics only . Can you help me

There's no need to restrict yourself to one kind of project - having a range of projects will bring in a wider range of readers via google (which is how most readers find projects).

You edit it.

It is in the editing portion that you have the option to delete an instructable. If it can't be deleted then just delete the steps and the text and pictures and make a note that you intend to delete it.


just rewrite it and make it the way you want it.

If the contest is closed, I do not think there is a way to delete it. But anyway, it is OK if it is there because no-one will really mind and maybe it will be automatically deleted but I am not completely sure since I haven't been using Instructables that long.
