I love to read tips about ways to reuse things in a new and different way. Below are a couple of my recent favorites:
Keep old squeeze bottles from your kitchen to use as bottles for your hair-care and cosmetic needs. Plastic salad dressing and cooking-oil bottles can be cleaned and refilled with soap, lotion, or shampoo. (www.sierraclub.org)
Old towels get a second life by cutting them up to become hand towels or dishrags. You can do the same with sheets, which can be cut, hemmed, and even embellished to become table napkins (www.econifty.com).
Thinking about ways to reuse items helps save the environment and money! What ideas do you have - let us know by commenting below.
