As a mom, I am always looking for ways to recycle, upcycle and make better choices about what products I use in our home. I recently heard about two sulfate-free products I wanted to try out: all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS® and AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® Shampoo and Conditioner.
These new products sparked an idea for me to upcyle cardboard boxes we had laying around into storage boxes. We recycle cardboard a lot but I like to keep a few boxes around in case I find a new use form them. I also used materials I already had laying around. Feel free to get creative with what you have.
Upcycled Cardboard Boxes Into Storage Boxes
- Cardboard box
- Box Cutters
- Measuring Tape
- Packing Tape
- Hot Glue Gun
- Hot Glue
- Burlap Ribbon
First measure how tall you want the box to be and make marks all around.
Using a box cutter cut around the box. It is okay if it is a little crooked. Don’t stress it.
Starting at the bottom of the box glue on the burlap ribbon.
Continue all the way around the whole box.
Now take your twine and wrap it around until you get the desired thickness. I hot glued it periodically to keep it in place.
Take another piece of burlap ribbon and fold over the top. Hot glue all the way around the outside first.
Now hot glue the ribbon to the inside at that top. If you wanted you could always add another fabric on the inside to make it cleaner looking but I think it looks fine this way.
I also took the top portion that I cut off before and retaped the flaps. Since this part was shorter I hot glued one piece of burlap ribbon down bottom and another directly on top. Then just ran the twine around twice.
NEW sulfate free all® fresh clean ESSENTIALS® delivers a powerful clean without harshness. The sulfate-free formula gets into your fabrics with proven and effective ingredients that will lift the toughest stains for a deep clean.
In the box for the laundry room I also put clothespins and a container for missing socks. That way I know where to find them when I come across the other sock. My laundry bag for delicates is in the box too. Not sure how many times I have lost track of that. Happy to have everything all in one place.
AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® Shampoo and Conditioner contains naturally derived cleansers and a sulfate free formula to gently cleanse your hair and scalp. I try to do my best to live a healthy lifestyle, and AVEENO PURE RENEWAL® helps me to know what I am putting into and on my body. That is why I choose sulfate-free hair care products that are also dye free and paraben free.
