"Cardboard Tubes" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


1. Megaphone. When you need to amplify your voice, talk through a cardboard tube.
 

2. Boot trees. Stick tubes into boots to hold their shape.
 

3. Knitting-needle case. Prevent bending and breaking—store plastic needles in an empty cardboard tube.
 

4. Fluorescent light storage. Pre vent breakage by keeping unused fluorescent lamps in cardboard tubes.

 

5. Light detangle. For trouble-tree decorating next year, wrap Christmas tree lights around a tube and secure with tape or a rubber band.
 

6. Document holder. Before storing diplomas, marriage licenses, and other certificates, roll them tightly and insert them in paper towel tubes. This prevents creases and keeps documents clean and dry.
 

7. Play logs. Notch the ends with a utility knife and construct ‘log” cab ins, fences, and other toys.

 

 

8. Linen press. After laundering tablecloths and napkins, roll them around tubes so that they won’t show creases where they were folded.
 

9. Fabric keeper. Store leftover fabric scraps, tightly rolled, inside a tube, For easy identification, staple a sample of each fabric on the outside.
 

10. Kazoo. Cut three finger holes in the middle of a paper towel tube and attach wax paper with a rubber band to one end. Hum into the other end, plugging different holes to alter the pitch.
 

11. Plant guard. Prevent accidental scarring when cutting down weeds— cut a tube lengthwise and put it around the trunks of young trees or plants; slip off afterward for use elsewhere.
