Wash the containers with dish liquid and a sponge.

Wash containers with your hands first so hair grease and gel wont get all over your sponge. Rinse them and then use your sponge make sure to use a different sponge from the one you use for your dishes.

    The rhinestone stickers look amazing! I have been recycling my empty storage containers into cookie and snack jars for the bigger ones, and spices jars for the smaller ones for the kitchen. I think with the décor stickers, there are just many more things to recycle them into!

    Yes! I love the rhinestone. I also have other containers I'm recycling too for some other projects. As soon as I do them I will post.
