More Orphan Socks

Unmatched socks can be the bane of our existence. Before you throw them away, however, consider re-purposing them.

Here are a 6 ways to use unmatched socks:

  • To eliminate odors:  Fill the sock with your favorite potpourri and place it in your drawer to keep items smelling fresh.
  •  To dispatch dust and cobwebs:  Place the sock over a broom handle, secure with a rubber band, and use it to dust high places. You can also use socks to dust furniture.
  • To clean:  Place the sock over your hand, dampen, and use it to clean baseboards, window sills, blinds, fan blades and more.
  • As a mop head replacement for Swiffer®-type cleaners:  Just dampen your sock with cleaning solution, stretch around the mop head, and use as usual. Then wash and reuse it.
  • To protect hardwood floors: Avoid scratching the floor by placing the sock under a piece of furniture before moving it.
  • To polish:  Apply your favorite polish and shine your silver, brass and pewter.

With so many uses for unmatched socks, don’t be surprised if you start to look forward to finding them in your laundry hamper.
