12 Uses For Plastic Lids

1.Sink stoppers: placing a plastic lid over a drain will create a vacuum and keep the water in your sink or tub.
2.Kid coasters: let the tykes monogram plastic lids to keep their glasses from getting mixed up and from sweating all over the table tops.
3.Cupboard and refrigerator drip pans: shove one under your pepper mill to catch the excess pepper that sifts out the bottom. Ditto for honey containers and all those other drippy things in the fridge.
4.Plant coasters: not only will they catch leaks, they’ll prevent rings on your furniture.
5.Non-stick pan scrapers: they’ll remove the yuck without damaging your pan’s surface.
6.Hamburger separators: slip lids between shaped patties before you freeze them, and then when it’s time to thaw them, they’ll be easy to separate.
7.Paint catchers: cut a hole in a lid, slip the handle of your paint brush through it, and voila, a paint catcher thing-y.
8.Plastic garbage bag closers: cut a slit in a plastic lid and then feed the top of your garbage bag through it for a securely closed bag.
9.Paint palettes: plastic lids are a great way to manage your paints while doing those little craft projects.
10.Glitter and bead management: if you're using loose glitter or beads for a project, keep them under control with an inverted plastic lid.
11.Glue catchers: slip a lid under your hot glue gun to catch drips.
12.Rust ring preventers: placing a plastic lid under your shaving cream will prevent the bottom of the can from making rust rings on your shower shelf or tub edge.
