How can I make a bread bin using recycled things?
We’ve had another email from Louise, this time on a “reverse this” type thing?
Hello it’s Louise again (ice-cream containers).
I’d like to make a breadbin using recycled material. I’ve thought about decorating an empty, clean paint container, but I’m not sure it would be hygienic. Any ideas?
I also wanted to tell you that I love your site and some of the creative ideas some of your posters come up with are nothing short of genius.
There you are people, you’re geniuses so let’s not let the lady down ;)
I’d steer clear of paint containers because I’d worry about just how clean I could get them for use with food – and particularly for use with ready-to-eat food that isn’t always wrapped perfectly. But I don’t know what I’d use in their place.
Has anyone made one before or got any ideas? What are good materials to think about? Does it need to be airtight or just fairly closed off dark?
And one final question from me and my tiny tiny kitchen, is it possible to make a collapsible one for folding away/shrinking down when it’s not in use or only holding a couple of crumpets instead of a full loaf?
