You hear about reusing, repurposing, and recycling more and more these days but the award for the most versatile reusable around the house really must go to pantyhose, any color any style, but yes, pantyhose. Recently I heard a local television station touting a segment on reinventions for this disposable clothing item, the one part of women’s wardrobes which is probably the most quickly damaged beyond repair for its intended use. Since I missed seeing the special myself, I ventured online where I found a wide diversity of fascinating results.
First, I consulted the Twitter community with a simple question as to whether anyone had a good idea for old pantyhose. One man responded that he used them to polish his boots when he was in the Marines. An article on Reader’s Digest.com mentions buffing all dress shoes with them and adds that it works so well it would cause a person to want to retire their chamois cloth. Good thing I have a drawer full of pantyhose. I don’t think I have a chamois cloth.
