Making holes in containers the easy way!
Maybe everyone already knows this, but I didn't see it anywhere....
My husband had a brilliant idea on how to easily make holes in plastic containers (yogurt cups, etc)....use a soldering iron! We had very little luck with slits from a knife, as they kept closing up. However, we had this soldering iron sitting around....it is my new best friend. :) If you do not have one, there is one on Amazon for under $10 with good reviews. It is easier to do before putting in dirt, etc, but still works quite well even when dirt is in there. The only downside is it does not work well on metal (pie plates, etc).
P.S. This may not work in colder climates, as it may make the holes too big. However, in my rainy zone 7b climate, it is working very well...mine were getting way too wet. :)
