Canada Dry Club Soda. Water your potted plants with flat Canada Dry Club Soda. The minerals in club soda benefit green plants.

Jell-O. Work a few teaspoons of powdered Jell-O into the soil of potted plants to absorb water, reduce how often you need to water the plants, and prevent water from leaking out of the bottom of the pot. The nitrogen in Jell-O enhances plant growth and hastens sprouting, and the sugar feeds the microbes in the soil, producing more nutrients for the plant.

Pampers. Use a pair of scissors to carefully cut open a Pampers disposable diaper and pot a houseplant by alternating potting soil with the super absorbent polymer flakes from the diaper. The polymer flakes absorb three hundred times their weight in water and store nutrients, reducing how often you need to water your houseplants.

USA Today. To avoid getting water on furniture or walls, hold a section of USA Today behind the plant when watering house- plants with a mister.

Windex. To use a clean, empty Windex bottle as a mister for plants, clean the bottle with a few drops of dishwashing liquid and water to remove any traces of harsh chemicals.
