Do you have some old bottles of plastic that are just about empty? A tub of lotions, a tub of mustards, a box of hairsprays, or shampoos? 

Choose one that is more flattened. The flattened shape will keep the bottle closer to the wall and out of the way once it is placed inside a cell phone.

Floating Bookshelf

Fill up almost to the top of each cup. Put in a few drops of essential lemon or orange oil for each tablet! Bring your pan, and put it in the freezer carefully. 

Leave it in the freezer to ensure the vinegar freezes full for at least 24 hours. After, you can use place it inside your garbage disposal to avoid the smell!
