Since switching to distilled water, I have gobs of empty "milk" type gallon jugs in my recycling. Any good ideas on what I can use the darn things for? So far, I have matching jug food and water dishes for the dog and cat. Think I could use them as hay holders for my bunny?

I have 2 2.5-gallon jugs and 1 1-gallon that I Just take to the grocery store and refill from the water machine since I hate wasting/using all that plastic from the water I buy. I bought 2 good leak-proof water bottles that have wide enough mouths to wash, so I use those for portable water.

I think the bunny may end up chewing it.<br><br><br><br>
You could make bird feeders out of them but cutting a section of it off.<br><br><br><br>
Here's some other ideas:<br><br><a href="http://www.thefrugallife.com/milk1.html" target="_blank">http://www.thefrugallife.com/milk1.html</a><br><br><a href="http://www.daniellesplace.com/html/trash.html" target="_blank">http://www.daniellesplace.com/html/trash.html</a><br><br><a href="http://articles.tips.net/Tips_For_Empty_Milk_Jugs.shtml" target="_blank">http://articles.tips.net/Tips_For_Empty_Milk_Jugs.shtml</a>

Some people who homebrew in warmer climates (and use a method where they boil part of the liquid and add the rest later) fill those with sanitary water, freeze them and cut them open to add to the boiled part which cools it down faster. I suspect if you can find one of those people they would take them all off of your hands. They'll only get reused once but that is better than straight to recycling.

By the way, refills are 39 cents a gallon. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="/images/smilies/smiley.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title=":)">

But if that's Jess' photo on her avatar, I would hardly call them 2.5 gallon jugs.
