When you’re done drinking from a soda or water bottle, your usual instinct is to throw it in the trash, right?
The reality is that not only is this habit extremely wasteful, but you’re also tossing away something that can be extremely useful in a survival situation or on the homestead.

This one is extremely simple – and no doubt, the most popular use. All you have to do is cut off the bottom of your bottle and remove the cap at the top. Then you can pour any fluids or grains through it.
