DIY Kitty Litter Scoop

Quick Fix: Plastic Bottle Kitty Litter Scoop

If you're tired of messy cat litter all over the place, or getting the litter into the litter box (and the icky stuff out), DIY a helpful scoop from a plastic bottle that can also be used for so many other things. And any sized plastic bottle works for creating this smart scoop, which makes it perfect for when you're in a bind. Here's what to do:

  1. Place the container on your work surface with the handle facing up. Use scissors to cut around the handle of the plastic bottle and then angle around three inches from the side to the base of the container. Remove the base and use for organizing items in your kitchen or storage area.

  1. Now you can help the scoop by adding a few holes around the base using a hole punch, which also helps shake the cat litter away from the unmentionables when cleaning the litter box.

  1. Your scoop is ready to use! And what's great is when it gets super grungy, you can toss it in the recycling. Make one just to use with kitty litter and another to use for scooping out dry cat or dog food.
