I recently read the parent hack for storing yarn in an old cleaning wipes bottle. Talk about recycling! Awesome. Well, after reading this I realized that I re-purpose a wipes bottle as well.
I have terrible migraines that can trigger a seizure if not treated immediately. Being allergic to certain medications I am limited to what I can use. One of the medications comes in the form of a shot. As you can imagine, storing used needles until they can be disposed of properly is a big concern. I didn't want to risk my child getting hurt if she came across one nor did I want those who deal with our trash to be injured.
I was about to dispose of an empty disinfectant wipes container and realized it was the perfect solution to the problem. We've labeled the container so that it doesn't get left out for little hands to reach. It's also perfect for storing used razor blades. Anything sharp that has to go into the trash is stored in the Lysol Wipes container until it's full and ready to be disposed of properly. We keep it in our childproof locked linen closet on a high shelf that is out of reach.
