"Carpet Scraps" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


1. Insulation. Cover the walls of a room with carpet scraps for sound- proofing and temperature control.
 

2. Clatter killer. Cut pieces of carpet to fit under typewriters and sewing machines, on cabinet shelves, and in toolboxes.
 

3. Bed bumper. Pad the corners of a sharp bed frame to prevent scraping or gouging the walls.
 

4. Foot warmers. Trace your feet on a piece of paper and use as a pattern to fit thin carpeting inside your boots, rubbers, or work shoes.

 

5. Dolly. Set a heavy tern atop a piece of carpet and pull it by one of the corners.
 

6. Drop cloth. When doing messy repairs, protect the floor with old carpeting; if you’re using a stepladder, make sure the piece is wide enough so that all four legs rest securely on it.
 

7. Exercise mat. Cut a piece of old carpet 3 feet wide and as long as you are tall. Roll it up when not in use.
 

8. Knee pad. Cut two pieces of carpeting 10 inches square; cut two slits or holes in each. Run old neckties or scarves through the slits to tie the pads to your knees.
 

9. Buffer. Glue an old piece of carpet to a block of wood; use it to clean window screens, buff shoes, or erase blackboards.
