New uses for old things

I found a great article at msn.com about 50 new things to do with old things.....here are some of what they suggested. For the article go here!

Protect your camera while traveling in a soap container.

Apply cooking spray to your snow shovel to avoid snow buildup.

Use a flatiron to get in between the buttons on a nice shirt.

A tissue box is a great thing to use to store your plastic grocery bags.

The game of Twister would make an adorable birthday tablecloth!

An empty matchbox filled with needles, threads and safety pins
make an instant travel sewing kit.

Use candy lifesavers for a cute candle holder.

Lemons rubbed on a cutting board remove smells left behind and also get rid of the stains.
Also use them on your steel sink to make it shine then throw the rest of the lemon in the disposal to make it smell fresh!

Rubber bands around a glass can help your little one get a better grip.

Use a baster to make watering your plants easy.

Collecting coasters from your travels would make cute gifts tags.

The bristles of a toothbrush are a great way to clean up your corn.

Use computer pads and hot pads!

Use bobby pins to hold your pleats in place while you iron.
