We all have 'em in our house: Socks with no matches, Socks with holes and Socks that you just can't get the stains out of.
Don't throw them out!
These socks have many uses around our house.
~Put one over your hand and use it as a duster. Just glide along the areas you need to dust.
~Use them as a rag. If you have lots, they can almost be throw away if you have to clean something extra messy.
~Fill one with dry rice and tie off the end. Pop it in the microwave for as few minutes and you have yourself a wonderful heating pad for aches and pains.
~ Create a toy for you cat. Place a couple tablespoons catnip in a sock (kid's socks work best) and tie off the end. Watch your cat toss, nibble on and roll around with it!
~If you have little ones, they work great as bath mitts
~Make yourself a sock scrubby: Put a bar of your favorite soap inside and tie it off. To lather, just wet, rub and scrub!
Got any more uses for a sock?
