Spray bottles

When people go to any shop to buy a spray bottle, most of the time, they intend to buy a glass spray bottle. Since plastic can have harmful chemicals, people try to buy good one. But the glass spray bottle does not come cheap. So, why not make it at home. Follow the simple steps to make a glass spray bottle at home:

Required Materials

  • Glass bottle

  • Plastic spray nozzle

  • Olive oil

  • Dishwash gel

  • Scrubber

  • Scissor

  • Cleaning brush



  • To make a DIY spray bottle, firstly, you need to take a bottle of vinegar or red wine.

  • Now, the next step is to find the perfect plastic spray nozzle for your bottle that fits perfectly on the lid of your glass bottle.

  • Whether you use a vinegar bottle or a red wine bottle, you can find a label on one of its sides.

  • Now, take a little olive oil on your palm and smear that on the label to get rid of it.

  • Next, fill the bottle with water to clean the inside.

  • Prepare a little warm water and mix any dishwasher gel with it so you can wash the bottle and peel off the label.

  • Once you prepare the water, keep the bottle in the container of the warm water you have prepared and leave it for at least 30 minutes.

  • After 30 minutes is over, keep the bottle away.

  • Now, gently peel off the label using your finger.

  • Once the label comes off the bottle, take a scrubber and wash the bottle.

  • Now take the plastic nozzle and put it on your bottle.

  • If the pipe of the plastic nozzle is too long for your bottle, then take a scissor and cut off the extra part from the end. The hose attached to the nozzle must be long enough to suck the liquid inside.

  • Once you cut off the extra part of the nozzle, attach it to your glass bottle. Your homemade spray bottle is now ready to use.

How to Make DIY Spray Bottle with Glass Jar?

If you do not want to use any glass bottles, you can use a small glass jar for making your spray bottle too.

Required Materials

  • Plastic spray bottle

  • X-acto knife

  • Glass jar

  • Permanent marker

  • Hot glue gun

  • Drill

  • Spray nozzle

  • Scissor


  • To know how to make DIY spray bottle at home, firstly, take an X-acto knife and a plastic bottle.

  • Cut off the top of the plastic spray bottle using a knife. Do not bother yourself trying to cut a perfect circle. You should just try to make the width the same on every side.

  • Take a small glass jar. You can take a glass jar that is around 15 cm long.

  • Now take the lid of the glass jar and draw a circle on it by using the lid of the plastic bottle. It makes the size of the glass jar hole the same as the size of the plastic bottle lid.

  • The next thing you need to do is, take a drilling machine and drill around the outline that you have drawn using the marker. Always wear a google to protect your eyes while drilling.

  • Push the hole a little with the plastic bottle cap to expand it a little.

  • Now, attach the plastic spray nozzle, and your task is finished. Your homemade spray bottle is ready.
