Uses for Old Stockings

Old stockings are great for all sorts of things. In the garden for tying up plants, the stocking is pliable and will not damage the plants. I make my own liquid fertilizer from garden waste and the stockings are great for sifting the fertilizer when it is ready to use. Cleaning - wad up the stocking and it makes a wonderful scrubbing non-scratch cleaning cloth. Left-over soap - cut the toe off the stocking and put in all the little left over pieces of soap, tie the end and it makes use of all those little pieces of soap no-one wants to use. It can be applied directly to skin and makes an excellent exfoliant. Can be used in ways in which you would normally use a cake of soap. I am sure other readers of this wonderful newsletter have more uses. If you don't wear stockings any more, they are readily available at op shops for about 50 cents a bag.
