- Pack tight and pack right: The next time you pack for a trip, roll up your garments, and slide the bulky items into pantyhose tubes. (cut the foot and panty off a leg). This keeps everything from unrolling and results in a neater suitcase.
- Stow away wrapping paper: To keep partially used rolls of wrapping paper from getting torn, put them inside the leg of an old pair of pantyhose. If you have several rolls, you can put a roll in each leg and drape it over a hanger, one leg on each side, and hang it in your closet.
- Great for vacation souvenirs: Fill an old, clean pantyhose leg with your collection of seashells form the beach or rocks for a hiking trail. Knot the end and you've got a great way to transport your treasures home.
- Stash onions: Keep onions handy and dry by storing them in the leg of an old pair of pantyhose. Just drop the onions in one at a time and tie a knot between each one. Hang in a cool, dry place. Whenever you need an onion, just snip one off with scissors.
- Make a thrifty scrubber: Wrap a piece of pantyhose around a sponge to make an inexpensive scrubber.
- Flour baking pans with ease: Fill the foot of an old, clean pantyhose leg with flour and keep it in your canister. The next time you have to flour a baking pan, just shake the foot lightly. This also works well if you need a floured surface to roll out bread or pastry.
- Make Fido a tug toy: You'll need 9 single legs, so cut and separate what you need. Tie all of them together at the top, then separate them into 3 groups of 3. Braid each group and knot at the bottom. You've got a great tug-of-war toy. Just make sure your furry friend doesn't chew off and swallow any pieces.
