Almost every single thing on this planet has more that one use. Reusing an item is beneficial to our environment, as that item stays out of our landfills the more we decide to reuse it for something that we just may never have thought of before. Milk jugs, aluminum foil, coffee cans, and even pantyhose can be reused many times before we send it off to the recycling bin.
Yes, I did say pantyhose. Once they're no longer fit to wear, due to snags or runs, they can be reused for many things. Don't even think about throwing them in the garbage until you read this article I found on Gomestic; 20 extraordinary uses for old pantyhose
, written by Lizzie 2 UK
A few of my favorites from the article:
- Use the legs to catch all the soap remnants that never seem to get used up.
- Excellent for holding mothballs
- Put the leg of the pantyhose over the end of the vacuum cleaner hose to pick up any small lost item from your carpet or bare floor.
Most of the ideas are new to me, but if you can use them, more power to you. Clean cat litter in old pantyhose truly does seem like an excellent way to eliminate dampness and absorb disgusting odors. Now, if I can just find my old pantyhose, I will have to try these excellent suggestions. What about you?
