A few years ago The Kitchn challenged readers to "ban the branded bottle" by decanting their dish soap into more beautiful vessels. We did and, while it's a little thing, it makes us happy to see and use our turquoise glass dispenser. So when we switched our son to formula a few months ago we were visually irked to have the branded container out on the counter. We moved it to a cabinet for awhile, but much prefer to have it easily accessible especially since many bottles are made one-handed with a baby on our hip. So when our sister gifted us with a large Orla Kiely kitchen cannister we knew just what we wanted to use it for.
Our husband thinks we're a little bit crazy to care about this and he may be right. What do you think? Are we the only ones to do this? What other products have you rehoused in more attractive containers?
