I do the same with milk jugs. I rinse them out with hot water and refill them with tap water. If nothing else I figure I can at least flush the toilet.food? no.
After the previous soda bottle thread I started 'recycling' all my 2l bottles to water storage. I do not use a lot so it is slow going.
I would advise against this. The plastic in milk jugs deteriorates faster and you will end up with a wet pantry/closet/whatever when the jugs no longer holds.I do the same with milk jugs.

Heck, putting the stuff in wine bottles could be decorative. I have a neat collection of over priced empty beer bottles that I may put to use.Definitely... plastic and glass, and wine bottles and champagne bottles, many of them take a press-on cap. In fact, I put 50 pounds of salt in 25 scotch bottles... that's dedication... For long-term storage I leave nothing in the original package because of insects here in Florida.
We're NOT soda drinkers here, so maybe I should start junk-picking on recycle day..hehe.
Is this really worth the hassle ? If so, I'll sure consider it.
Now, we DO have enough beer cans to make 3 million little burners, but that's another story. Yuk.
