    After cleaning it really good, I use it for the big batch of homemade laundry soap. I keep it under the laundry room sink and refill a smaller box to use out of. Works fantastic because the lid snaps down tightly.

      I also use these for my liquid laundry soap I make. They stack great, take up less space than a regular 5-gallon bucket, and I already had them.We also use them as "totes" for storage in the basement and garage.

    I have a smaller bucket with fold back lid. I use this for rock salt. If you open lid before lifting handle it holds open while you salt. Having the fold back lid also helps to keep salt from getting wet while you salt.

    I have been wanting to do this, and was so glad when I found this article. Like everyone else, I do not know what type of paint was used or the preparation before painting.
