Do you have an empty fire extinguisher at home or in the office? Are you wondering what to do with it? Stop yourself from throwing it away because I have good news for you. Believe it or not, you can still use it. Since it has served its purpose of putting off flames, it can now be used to quench your thirst. Yes, you can keep a bottle of drink in there when you transform it into a mini bar.

You can keep a bottle of drink in there, for when you need it most.
