TNO's Tips & Tricks 38 - Reuse your bottle brush!

As a parent of two small children, we've amassed quite a few baby products that I don't really use - or at least don't use for their intended purpose.

Enter the bottle brush.

We bottle feed only when Little Lady is at daycare or at home with DH while I work, and since our daycare provider washes and keeps the bottles she uses for Little Lady - we only have to wash half that amount.  Some weeks go by and we don't wash any bottles at all if I'm not working on the weekend.  Also, Little Lady is becoming quite proficient with a straw cup, and I see our bottle days as being slightly numbered.

So, what do you do with all of the bazillion bottle brushes of all sizes we have at the house?

Do what we always do, Pinky - save the world.  LOL.  Just kidding.  But I'll reuse them!

I've found that our larger bottle brushes are an excellent way to clean stuck on gunk off of a lot of things, pans {depending on your coating}, high chair trays, casserole dishes, the crock pot {if you use it without a liner} - the possibilities are endless.

For our smaller bottle brushes, we use those to clean things like the inside of straws for our straw cups when the kids are older, the inside of the water spout on our refrigerator, and even in small, hard to reach areas on toys.

Instead of going out and buying another sponge brush for your kitchen, definitely try out those bottle brushes you have sitting around that you maybe never really used in the first place!
