Smart Shaker

Next time you peel the seal from a canister of cleaning powder, take it off only halfway. Keeping some of the holes covered gives you better control of the flow, so it won't come pouring out.

    then replace for fewer holes plus it's recycling, why waste tape!

    the label that comes with it is already sticky, can be taken off and readjusted if you need more holes for a bigger project

    Why not completely remove the ugly label that comes on the can and then cover however many holes you want with tape for a neater look.

    I already do this. It works great on baby powder containers too!
