Probably not, but a cool headline! This blog entry will explore just a few fun uses for your socks – especially for that lonely pair found after completing the laundry.
. . . (gotta start with the pets) . . .
- Cat toys (our cats love this!)
Fill the toe of a sock with polyfill and a small pinch of catnip, and then tie it off for a frugal cat toy.
- Pull toy for dogs
Tie multiple socks together to create a length, making sure the knots are tight so while you're playing, they don't give way, and let your dog pull and tug at this homemade toy.
- Sock puppets
Sock puppets are easy to make with an old sock and a marker, and perhaps a bit of yarn if you really want to get fancy, plus your imagination. Kids love both making them and playing with them afterward.
- Dampened sock in dryer to remove wrinkles (this works)
When you forget clothes in the dryer and they get all wrinkled there's no need to iron everything or wash it again. Instead, throw in a dampened mismatched sock or two and run the load in the dryer again for a few minutes and the wrinkles
- Dust rags and cleaning rags
Old socks fit right over your hand, and make a great way to dust furniture, baseboards, blinds, and even ceiling fans. They're perfect for all kinds of quick cleaning tasks.
When getting rid of excess sock clutter in your home throw some of these excess socks into your cleaning rag bag for this purpose.
There are so many more! I would love to hear your ideas!
