A new thing to recycle

I finally found a use for those plastic cases bulk CD's come in. I used the top part, the big plastic "cup" to clean my wheel bearings in this weekend. Fill them up part way with mineral spirits and let the wheel bearings soak for a while then hit them with an old toothbrush. Then just chuck the tops, or dry them out and reuse them.

Re: A new thing to recycle

Good idea.

We've been buying powdered Gatorade for trips (easier to mix more on the trail than take several quarts). It now comes in this cool orange plastic container with a thread-on lid but very large opening. I use one to carry misc hardware and one to carry wheel bearing grease........the stupid cardboard cans that wb grease comes in never hold up once you "pop" them open.

Re: A new thing to recycle

Tupperware works great for grease, I get the tubes of synthetic Valvoline for a grease gun and squirt them into the 'ware. Someone gave me some 5 gallon square buckets, these work pretty good for misc. gear like jumper cables, tow straps and rope. I think that they had cat litter in them originally. Gosh should I get a cat now just so I can get these cool buckets? [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: A new thing to recycle

I use the cheap rubbermade boxes that you can buy at Wal Mart for cheap for all my spare parts and camping gear. My wife and I pack these ahead of time that way all we do is load the food in the ice chests throw the containers in the Bronc and go. It's nice to not have to run around looking for everything before each trip. I wish I could take the credit but that one my wife did. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]
