• Clever ashtray

    Date:23 April 2012 Tags:, , , ,

    Here’s a way to extract something useful from smokers while disposing of their ash and cigarette butts. Fill a plastic cool drink bottle halfway with water and use it as an outdoors ashtray. The water snuffs the butt immediately and the nicotine that dissolves from the ash makes a handy insect killer for your flower beds. When the contents have done their job, replace the bottle top and dispose of it in an environmentally acceptable manner.
