Use an oral medicine syringe to dispense fish tank chemicals
Another super-smart hack from Tracy Hengst:
We have a million of those oral medicine-dosing syringes around our house. You know the kind... they come with infant meds, the kind you get from your pharmacy, etc. Although we use them for playing doctor, I feel bad just throwing them away.
So the other day when I was trying to painstakingly measure out the "chlorine reducer" drops for our fish tank, I had an aha moment. I pulled out one of the droppers and, wouldn't you know it, it took me 2 seconds to measure it out - compared to several minutes using the built-in cover/cup included with the chlorine reducer bottle. To make even easier, I've taken a permant marker to indicate my fish drop fill-line. So, there you go, I managed to gain back 1 1/2 minutes of my busy life :)
I would love to hear ideas from other folks about what they do with their old oral syringes.
So? How have you reused those oral syringes?
