Don’t know what to do with old baby socks? Why not make cat toys or cute Christmas ornaments. To make cat toys, insert catnip and then sew the opening closed. You can then add ribbon or yarn to drag a toy. To make some baby sock snowmen ornaments, you’ll need batting, string, fabric, white and colored baby socks, glue, buttons, permanent markers, orange and another color or pipe cleaner and two mini pompons. For directions, visit http://spoonful.com/crafts/baby-sock-snowmen. For other baby sock uses, visit http://www.frugalvillage.com/2013/02/22/new-uses-for-baby-socks/.


I wrote once here about another use for dryer sheets. Here are more uses: To help loosen dried or burnt on food from pots and pans, fill the item with hot water and toss in a used dryer sheet. Reuse then on a dry erase board. Put them in the bottom of the waste basket before putting in the liner to cut down on trash odor. For more uses, visit http://www.frugalmom.net/blog/frugal-living/catching-upand-dryer-sheets/


For another easier and less expensive way to clean, try using car polish on the bathroom counters, sinks and faucets. It will then repel dirt and water for about a month. Also, for a natural disinfectant, mix one cup water, one cup vinegar, one tablespoon castile soap, one tablespoon eucalyptus oil and one tablespoon tea tree oil. Shake it up and use on doorknobs or trashcans. For more information, visit http://www.littlepeoplewealth.com/2010/11/cleaning-on-budget/.
