OLD PAIR OF NYLONS

Filter old paint from one can into a new can. Just stretch the nylon across the top of the new can and pour the old paint through it. It will filter out lumps and dried paint.

Store scraps of soap. Collect enough pieces, and tie the stocking off. It will made a good soap scrubber

Protecting very small items, like handkerchiefs and doilies, in the washing machine and dryer (low temp). They may need ironing afterward, but lace trim and hem-stitching will be safe from the zippers and rivets of other clothes, and they won’t find their way into the lint trap.
Use to make sachets … put in some lavender flowers, cedar chips, or your favorite potpourri; tie a knot; cut above the knot; repeat up the leg and then toss the little bundles in drawers, shoe boxes, the pockets of stored coats … wherever.

Remove cat hair from furniture. Pull the stocking over your hand, and wipe down your couches and chairs. It creates static and the hairs come right up.

Find lost contact lenses, earrings, or other such tiny items. Put the stocking over the end of the vacuum hose and gently vacuum the area where the item was dropped.

Repel deer and other animals from your garden. They hate the smell of humans, so you can use nylons with ivory soap staked in the garden to keep the deer away.

Pull over a yardstick to dust under the fridge, washer, dryer, or under any hard to reach area.

Reduce your heating bill. Make a stocking snake to prevent drafts by filling the leg of a nylon with sand and tie the end shut. Place at the bottom of the door to prevent cold air from seeping inside.

I read today that you can fill nylons with your dog or cats hair and then hang them in various places in your garden. It will keep rabbit and other critters out of your garden because they think fido or fluffy is there.

you can also fit one leg loosely over your dryer vent on the outside of your house so that the lint and crap doesn't go outside and dirty up that part of your yard. Just replace as it gets full.
