The easiest way to reuse a cork is to stick it back in the bottle. So, technically this would be the second easiest. You might be able to do it right now.
I was organizing my essential oils when I spotted an accumulated collection of wine corks. Am I the only who has trouble throwing them away? If you do too, you might want to try this. It occurred to me that if I put some cedar wood oil in the cork; I could throw it in my closet and it would work like those little cedar balls that you can buy at the drugstore. So, I did and it does.
Just put a few drops right in the hole where the corkscrew went. You can put it anywhere you want really since the cork is porous. However, it’s a lot less messy if you put it inside. It occurred to me that I could use whatever scent I wanted. So, I started adding a few drops of lavender oil as well. My closet now smells lovely!
There you have it: easiest cork DIY ever. You’re welcome! Tell your friends!
