Keep Your Cords Organized (And Out Of The Way) With A DIY Charging Station

Do you ever plug your phone into an outlet to charge, only to find no safe place to rest your phone? We’ve all done it. I’m talking about balancing your phone on a ledge, resting it next to the kitchen sink, etc. Well, with one simple solution you can change all of that. Learn how to create your own charging station using an empty shampoo or body wash bottle!

Here’s a video tutorial on how to make a charging station:

First, find an empty bottle and clean it out.

Measure the height of your phone and mark it on the front of the bottle with a Sharpie. On the back of the bottle, extend the line upward to create a place for the charger.

Using an X-Acto knife or blade cutter, cut along the marked line and remove that part of the bottle. Then, take your charger plug and trace it with a marker on the extended part of the bottle. Cut it out with your knife.

Use sandpaper to smooth out the rough edges of the plastic. Spray paint the bottle any color of your choosing.

Place your phone in the holder and slip your charger through the hole. When you plug it into the wall, don’t let the plastic touch the outlet.

That’s it! So simple and it will keep your phone protected and out of the way.
