Ok I know it sounds weird, but there are so many uses for old stockings and tights that are beyond repair. Here are a couple of my favourites!
If you cut old stockings or tights from left to right so that they make a ring (about twenty rings per leg) they make perfect hairbands. Much better than the ones you buy in the shops with that horrid metal bit that catches the hair! and it takes just a few seconds!
I also use this same method to tie plants to their stakes in the garden!
I also use an old stocking to place my soap in after a bath. You just put the soap in and then tie the stocking onto a tap. That way any water on the soap drips down the plughole and you don’t waste soap (from it going yucky and slimmy in a soap dish). Next time you use the soap it is lovely clean and dry.
Talking of soap, when I get those tiny bits left of a bar of soap (you know the bits that often just end up down the plughole). I save them up put all the bits into an old stocking, tie the stocking as close to the soap as possible, and cut off the excess stocking and there you have a lovely foaming bath mitt.
More odd uses of things coming soon!
