Recycle, Reuse, Revamp
Have snags and runs torn part of your hosiery?
No worries! There are bunches of uses for old pantyhose and tights Just wash and let dry first then use to:
-Dust delicates such as glass, ornaments, and knickknacks that have many nooks and crannies.
-Polish & Clean old dusty candles.
-Find small lost items from the floor: Use with a rubber band and stretch the footed section of hosiery over the vacuum hose instead of using a separate attachment. Wrap the rubber band securing it all the way around the edge and turn on. Voila! Find small items like jewelry that have fallen without getting the item sucked up onto the machine.
Make Potpourri Satchels (tied off with hair bands or ribbons. I like to use organic lavender and cinnamon sticks, star anise and dried orange peels inside).
From Pantyhose to Blooming Rose
From Runs, Ruins & Rags to Roses: you can recycle some of the pretty pairs or nylon tights still in good condition overall that you can’t bear to part with and make them into roses! (Lacey hosiery works especially well) http://www.ehow.com/how_2335323_make-flowers-out-pantyhose-.html
Coming Up Roses
In fact if you are still in need of some everlasting blooms even in the upcoming cold months take a slightly worn or torn lingerie and frilly loungewear and invigorate it once again in a Blossoming Bra.
