"Cotton" Common Things With Uncommon Uses


1. Arm guard.
To keep water from running down your arms when washing walls, wrap a strip of cotton batting around your wrists and secure it loosely with rubber bands.

2. Summer refresher. Dab cotton balls in your favorite cologne, seal in a plastic bag, and store in the freezer. When you need a lift on a blistering summer day, remove one of the balls and dab your wrists and neck.
 

3. Deodorizer. To eliminate a sour odor in your refrigerator, dampen a handful of cotton with vanilla extract and place it on the middle shelf.
 

4. Glove extender. Push bits of cotton into the fingertips of rubber gloves so that your nails donít poke through.
 

5. Stuffing. Use as filler for dolls, toys, pillows, and so forth.
 

6. Swab. Wrap cotton around a matchstick or toothpick; use to remove grit from filigree and carvings.
 

7. Air freshener. Saturate a ball with cologne and place in the bag of your vacuum cleaner to sweeten the air.
