1. Nail holder. Avoid hammering your fingers—hold a small
nail in place between the teeth of a comb.
2. Music maker. Fold a
piece of wax paper over the teeth, hold it
up to your lips, and hum.
3. Wallet guard. To make
your wallet less accessible to a pickpocket, put a small comb, fines
up, in your pocket; the fines will catch
on the pocket edges and help secure the wallet.
4. Vacuum cleaner Save
old combs to clean vacuum brushes.
5. Washboard. After
immersing a stained fabric in soap and
water, rub it across the teeth of a comb.
6. Back scratcher. Clip
a comb to the end of a ruler with paper clips or spring clamps.
