"Corks" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


1. Jewelry. Punch holes through the centers of several corks and string together; for variety, use different sizes and paint them.

3. Makeup. Burn the end and use the ashes as makeup on Halloween.

 
4. Trivet.
Glue wine bottle corks together for a hot pad to protect the table.
5. Key ring.
Attach your boat key to a large painted cork; if it falls overboard, it will stay afloat and be visible.

7. Stamp.
Draw a design in the end, cut away the material outside the outline, and ink the cork on a pad.

8. Safety marker. String large corks on a yellow polypropylene line to define a special swimming area for small children.
 

9. Knife cleaner. Dip a dampened cork in scouring powder and pass if along the edges of a carbon-steel kitchen knife.

 

10. Scratch guard. Attach thin slices of cork to the bottoms of ashtrays, vases, and lamps.
 

11. Recipe holder. Cut a slit in a cork and glue it to the lid of a recipe file box; place a card upright in it so that you can easily refer to it while cooking.
 

12. Rust preventer. Rub kitchen utensils and garden tools with a cork dipped in cooking oil.
 

13. Rocker guard. To help prevent tipping, glue corks under both ends of each rocker.
