Need an extra large rubber band? Cut around the elastic top of an old pair of panty hose. Two of these crisscrossed, work fine when bundling newspapers. Use one to hold a bag in place in a garbage can.

Cut rubber gloves up for a variety of sizes to make elastic bands -- cut up the fingertips and the cuffs. I also like to use girls pony tail holders. You can usually buy a big bag of them in a discount store or on a clearance rack for a dollar or less.

I've discovered that when collecting rain in your rain barrel, you can put a leg from a pair of pantyhose over the end of your downspout. It keeps the water clean, especially if your gutters have any debris in them. I hold the pantyhose material on with an elastic band, which makes it easy to remove and rinse off when it gets dirty. I also use an old window screen over the barrel to keep mosquitoes out, and keep any wildlife from falling into the barrel. Hope these ideas are useful.

What an awsome idea! Too bad it might be hard to find a device to put on the rain barrel that would do that same thing to keep out "stuff"! I know pulling up the leaves on cauliflower and covering the plant with a cut off section of panty hose helps to keep those pesky moths off and the larvae too! Great hint - thanks!

"No Show" Socks Over Foot

CommentPin It! Was this helpful? Yes

Make your own "no show" socks. Cut the panty part off the pantyhose. Stretch the open end of the cut off stocking over your foot. Cut off the excess stocking off, leaving a seam allowance of 1/4 inch.

To protect your garden produce from insects or animals that love to sample, cover each (squash, lets say) with a length of panty hose. Close the top and bottom of the hose by knotting or tying with string so there are no openings for critters.
