We've seen in previous blog posts that Gookie Dough tubs aren't just for storing your dough and then throwing them away. We love to encourage you cookie monsters to reuse and upcycle your tubs. Not only are they great for storage, you can make them into really useful pieces of equipment. Whether this is beauty, fashion or lifestyle related. Today, we're looking at how you can recycle your pots in the kitchen.
If you want to make your kitchen shelves colourful with pretty sweets and chocolates then our tubs look perfect on your shelves. Due to the plastic being see-through, you can really use this to your advantage. In our case, we used lollipops in the monster tub of Gookie Dough. However, when it comes to the smaller tubs, perhaps fill them with smarties and dolly mixtures for a vibrant splash of colour. A true focal point.
First of all, let's just take a moment to appreciate this colourful pasta. Yes, at first I thought it was flower petals or some strange cereal but it's so gorgeous! Instead of having packets shoved in the cupboard that are half open and left to go stale, using the Gookie Dough tub is so useful. The airtight pot allows food to stay fresh and is compact. No more ripped packets or disastrous spills.
Starbucks and Costa vibes are certainly present right now. Create a coffee corner in your kitchen which is perfect when you're in need of your caffeine boost. The use of coffee beans is becoming more common so why not turn your kitchen into a cafe. Another top tip is to keep the lid off if you're having guests around as the smell of coffee will linger through the air and get those nostrils sniffing in delight. You can thank us later for your morning fix.
What better way to make use of a Gookie Dough tub than to put cookies and biscuits into it as storage? Yes, that's right, your very own cookie jar courtesy of us. A cheaper way to store your yummy's compared to a jar from the shops. Not only that, but you're also saving the environment and doing some good for the planet.
Secure tubs that you can reuse with hardware plastic and a secure lid. The best part? You're saving money along with the world. Have any more ideas on how to upcycle your tubs in the kitchen? Let us know in the comments below!
When it comes to Gookie Dough pots, you'll be surprised with the number of things you can do to reuse them instead of throwing them away. We've got a blog series where we upcycle your cookie dough pots and today, we kick things off with the beauty edition. So, girls, a heads up because this one is for you (and guys, of course, especially if you're a contact lens wearer). Today, in particular, we focus on the monster tubs for all of those important bits.
Finding a makeup brush holder is a difficult challenge and when you come across one, you're put off by the price. However, how cute brushes look in a Gookie Dough tub? All you need to do is wash the pot out thoroughly and pop your brushes in. As simple as that! Of course, removing the label is optional but it will look better on your vanity without. The great thing is that the tub is rather large so you're able to access your brushes with ease.
#2 Toiletry Holder
When we have a bath or shower, we tend to get our products everywhere. Shampoo will be at one end while the shower gel is hiding behind endless empty bottles. If you have any mini-sized bottles of toiletries then pop them into the monster Gookie Dough tub and place them on your shelf in the bathroom. Not only will they save space but they'll all be together so no more searching for that body scrub!
#3 Contact Lenses
Contact lens wearers, the struggle can be real when travelling around with your contacts, especially with the solution, your contact pot and also extra contact lenses, especially if you wear daily disposables! To keep everything in one place and separate from your makeup bag, pop all of your contact products in the Gookie Dough tub and secure with the lid. Those things are extremely fiddly and this little hack will give you peace of mind.
So, there are just a few simple ways you can upcycle your Gookie Dough tubs and get some extra use out of them. See, we're not always about cookies (although 95% of the time we are), hence why we've designed pots which cater to your DIY creative needs. Plastic pots aren't so boring after all.
