    What do I do with all the milk?

    I’ve got photography on the brain for the moment, but that also looks like a decent soft-box material for a flash or a video light.

      A friend of mine used one to photograph watches he worked on.  Just cut the bottom off the jug, place it over the watch, shine a couple of bright lights at the outside, and position the camera so it looks down through the open neck.

    i made one of these awhile back – they are great, but the glue on the velcro tab makes it hard to wash. i’m currently experimenting with punching holes and using a twist-tie to hold it closed.

    While I’m very pro re-purposing there are times when it’s best just to put the milk jug in the recycling bin and buy a more suitable product. Namely one that will not let the bread dry out.

    Spindles for blank CDs make excellent bagel caddies too!

    Hate to be the science nerd in the room, but plastic is actually quite porous on a microscopic level. The nooks and crannies do an excellent job of holding onto bits of whatever was in contact with it, which means this repurposing of a milk container is providing a growing medium for whatever bacteria it accumulates. This is why it’s generally a bad idea to re-use plastic bags, even if you’ve rinsed them out.

    You know that thing you handle everyday? Be very careful, if you so much as look the other way it will rip your throat out.

    You can only use this for sandwiches made with artisan mayo.
