Cleaning Containers

April 2020

Spring is in the air and, for many, spring cleaning has begun. SKS carries a variety of metal, glass, and plastic containers that are great for storing various household cleaners, including furniture polish, dish soap, carpet deodorizer, and more.

DIY Beeswax Furniture Polish in Deep Metal Tins

Protect wooden furniture and give it a beautiful sheen with this beeswax and plant based furniture polish by Misfit Gardening, packaged in our deep metal tins. Using four simple ingredients, easily make and apply this polish to wooden furniture using a soft brush or cloth.

  • 1 oz Beeswax: protects the wood from damage and helps keep the oils in the wood.
  • 4 oz Olive oil: hydrates the wood.
  • 1 tsp Grapeseed oil: helps preserve the olive oil.
  • ¼ tsp Essential oil (optional): adds a nice scent to the polish. Popular choices are lemon, lavender, or orange.

Deep metal tins are available in five different sizes, ranging from 1 oz to 8 oz, and come with rolled edge metal covers. Each metal container is composed of tin plated steel, which is durable, corrosion resistant, and 100% recyclable.

Homemade Dish Soap in Natural Cylinder Bottles

Detoxify your dish soap with this homemade recipe from Oh Lardy stored in our plastic squeeze bottles with push pull caps. This non-toxic recipe calls for less than ten ingredients and can be made in minutes.

  • ½ tsp Salt
  • 15 Drops essential oils of choice: adds scent to the dish soap. This recipe uses Purification, grapefruit, and lemon.
  • ½ cup Water: waters down soap so it lasts longer.
  • 1 tsp Vegetable glycerin: helps cut through grease.
  • 1 cup Castile soap: the base of the recipe and provides a good lather.

Our natural HDPE plastic dish soap bottles are available in two sizes, are highly flexible, and offer good barriers against grease and oil. The plastic caps feature a pouring spout that is opened when the caps are pulled and closed when the caps are pushed.

DIY Carpet Freshener in White Powder Bottles

Deodorize your household carpets with this easy carpet freshener recipe, also from Oh Lardy, packaged in our plastic powder bottles. Only two ingredients are needed for this green recipe and the scent can be easily personalized based on preference.

White HDPE powder bottles are durable, available in five sizes, and feature snap on sifter caps. The sifter caps easily twist open and closed and can be removed to refill the plastic bottles as needed.
