Cut the Mustard … Bottle

I found out that I can’t pour water into the side of my camper when I tried to sanitize the freshwater holding tank. After mixing up the first batch of bleach solution in a gallon jug, I discovered that I would need a funnel with an angled spout to get it in. I looked around for a substitute and found that the neck of an empty mustard bottle would fit snugly into the opening. I cut a large “window” out of the side of the bottle and proceeded to successfully pour the solution into the holding tank. Problem solved! Total cost: $0! Total time to make: about five minutes including cleaning out the little bit of mustard left in the bottle.
