Do you have a few empty Folgers coffee containers lying around? Don't throw them away! There are some wonderful things you can do with those empty coffee cans and we've put together 30 of the most ingenious ideas for you. Cover a coffee can with a small plastic bag (even a used plastic bag will do) and keep it near the sink to store kitchen scraps and husks. To turn a coffee can into a sturdy bird feeder, start with a full can and open the top only halfway. Keep an empty coffee can nearby while you check children's pockets before putting a load in the washing machine.
If you have more belts than places to hang them, simply roll them up and store them in a large, clean coffee tin with a clear lid. Use your favorite bread recipe, but place the dough in a well-oiled coffee can instead of a loaf pan. It's not just coffee cans that come in handy, or check out these ingenious coffee filters. The large coffee cans are just the right size to prevent the belts from creasing and a transparent lid will allow you to find each belt easily.
After removing that imprint from the surface, I turned an empty coffee can into a nice bread box. To make a bench for children or a collection tin for a favorite charity, use a utility knife to cut a groove in the center of the plastic lid of a coffee can. Turn plastic lids on old coffee cans into drip catchers under paint cans and under furniture legs when painting. An empty coffee can is perfect for briefly soaking a brush in thinner before continuing to work the next day.
These are just some of the many ways you can reuse empty Folgers coffee containers. With some creativity and imagination, you can come up with even more ideas! So don't throw away those empty Folgers containers - put them to good use!.
