DIY Drinking Glasses REUSING Fire Cider Bottles

DIY Drinking Glasses REUSING Fire Cider Bottles

We are so happy that people are looking for more information on how to reuse our glass bottles! This means we all have our Earth's best interest in mind and we're doing our part to reduce our waste! Hooray! 

Please use this step by step tutorial to make your very own, very beautiful, repurposed drinking glasses from our Boston Round Fire Cider glass bottles!

*PLEASE PROCEED WITH CAUTION, AS YOU ARE DEALING WITH SHARP EDGES

AND POTENTIALLY BROKEN GLASS.*


step1

Carefully pour boiling hot water into your empty Fire Cider bottle and let it sit for 3-4 minutes to loosen up the adhesive on the label.

The bottle will be SUPER HOT, so use a pot holder to hold the bottle and peel the label off slowly. (Do as I say, not as I do!)

If there is any leftover stickiness on the bottle, use some olive oil or some GooGone to get it off.

step2

Using your handy bottle cutter like this one, score a line around the bottle where you want the bottle to crack open.

step3

This is the tricky part. By alternating extreme hot and cold temperatures along the score line the bottle should pop and crack along the line. It doesn't always though, so don't get too attached just yet to your creation. /p>

Set up two baths. One with ice water. One with boiling water. Dunk the bottle upside down into the hot and then the cold, alternately, until it separates.




step4

Using waterproof sandpaper, wet the edge of the glass and sand the rough edge until it is nice and smooth. USE CAUTION! This IS broken glass.

Rinse off the glass so you can see if there are any spots you missed.
