Why Buy Your Own Bottles? 

Before we dive into the ways you can use your empty chilli sauce bottles, let us tell you all the great ways you can save or make money by buying your own. You can use your chilli sauce bottles for yourself to make your own recipes, or bottle them up to give to friends and family - or sell as part of a business. Whether you prefer your sauce to be more tangy than spicy, or you simply find store-bought brands don’t have enough kick, there are many reasons why you may want to make your own recipes. Some of the other reasons to by your own bottles include: 

Experimentation: When you have your own bottles, you can easily experiment with a wide range of flavours to find the perfect blend for you. 

Income Boost: Many people love buying their preserves from small businesses or farmers markets as there’s a wider variety of unique flavours available. 

Miscellaneous: As strong glass bottles, chilli sauce bottles can be used for more than just chilli sauce, you can use them for just about anything!

Other Sauces

Now, this one is fairly obvious but something you may not consider. The lids of chilli sauce bottles are great for more than just dolloping out some chilli sauce, and you can reuse your glass bottles for a wide variety of other sauces. Whether you want a cleaner, more aesthetic way to display your store bought sauces, or you plan on making your own, glass bottles can often make sauces feel fresher. 

Flower Vase

Do you like to decorate your home with flowers? Chilli sauce bottles can look very unique in displaying small bunches of flowers without taking up too much space. This can be ideal for smaller living spaces where you don’t have a lot of room to add a large, intricate vase but still want to bring a bit of the outdoors into your home. We recommend using either smaller flowers bunched together, or a larger flower with the stem cut to fit. 


Glass bottles can be cut fairly easily, and if done right you can remove any sharp edges - there are plenty of tutorials online that can tell you how to do this yourself. From there, you can use the base as an excellent organiser for pens, makeup brushes, paint brushes, and anything else you can fit in there. We have known some customers who have bought fabric swatches to cover their cut bottles to use them as small spice jars too! 

Soap Dispensers

Due to how easy it is to pour a thicker sauce from the lid, chilli sauce bottles actually make very good soap dispensers for anyone looking for an aesthetically pleasing way to display their soap in the kitchen or bathroom. You can make your own or use a shop-bought liquid soap to fill the bottles and they make a very pleasing - and very unique - way to wash your hands, sure to impress your guests!
