Old Socks: DIY Projects To Reuse Articles Of Clothing

Posted: Updated:

From Networx's S.E. Smith:

There are few things more tragic than the development of a hole in the toe of your favorite sock, or a visit by the laundry gnomes that leaves a healthy sock mateless after a round of washing. Some of us throw away socks that aren’t fit for wearing anymore, while others hoard them “just in case,” but there’s actually another solution.

In fact, a whole lot of solutions, because old socks are far from useless. You can give them a new lease on life and you might be surprised by the myriad of ways to employ an old sock around the house.
