11. Storage

Old socks can be used to store all types of small things and not take up drawer space such as golf balls, kids toys, tennis balls — almost anything that tends to get lost or that you don’t have enough room to store.

Cut the toe off  a few socks and sew several together, or simply individual socks to stop drafts and bugs from coming in under the door. Fill a sock (or several socks) with rice or sand, and sew closed. Instant draft stopper!


13.  Forget the Car Wash

Use old socks to wash, dry and wax the car! Tell your kids it’s good for them!
