My girlfriend has a iv pump and we have dozens of syringes(needless) everywhere!
It's killing me that all this is going to the waste dump- they are not hazerdous, they were just full of saliene.
I need to make something with all these- plus I have iv tubing and saliene bags up the wazoo!
I was thinking of using the syringes to hold stuff, like advil or mouthwash...Making a lil holder for them, like those metal test tube holders we all played with in chemistry, and then hanging them on the wall.
Anyone else have any cool ideas? I'm drowning in these things
Ahh syringes. I have at least one in just about every room of the house. Mind the hygienic requirements for each use and let's see.
Syringes with needles:
- oiling sewing machines and other fine parts
- precision glue application (toss after use)
- precision paint application (toss after use)
Syringes without needles:
- nasal irrigation/sinus flushing (use at least 20 ml syringes, and use boiled water unless you like scary deadly infections
- paint application (toss or clean right after use)
- glue application (toss after use)
- measuring of liquids (food coloring, perfume, aroma's and essential oils, etc; insulin syringes are the most precise)
- precision hair dye application (toss after use)
- application of cream or topping on baked foods
- turn it into a usb stick
- turn it into a pen
- fill with jell-o and cool for awesome halloween jell-o shots
Also, I reckon if you cut them up (length-direction) and work them with a lighter and then spray-paint, you could turn them into flowers and other ornaments for hair pins and home decoration. Haven't tried though.
Edit: forgot a few.
- transporting perfume from large bottles into small carry-with-you tubes
- making lip gloss and lipstick (5 or 10 ml syringes with needle base cut off with a hobby knife, and extended, placed upside down, filled with oil- and wax base then left to harden; once hard, you just push the hardened "stick" out into a lipstick holder)
