Using Old Pantyhose for Draft Stoppers

Category Reusing

Use old pantyhose for draft stoppers. Fill them with sand or sunflower seeds and put them in front of doors to stop the air leaks at the bottom.

Hi Brenda,

I've been using old terry towels to make "draft stoppers" for years...and I fill them with the cheapest rice I can find. The rice will last almost

indefinitely as long as it doesn't get wet...and they

work very well at keeping in the heat if and when

we need it. More often, we're using them to keep

our air-conditioning from leaking out.

I also make "hot and cold" compresses with the old

terry towels...and rice. You can make them any size

you like as well as any shape. To make them cold,

place them in a plastic bag and pop them into the

freezer. To make them warm, use the microwave.

Where there's a will, there's always a way... : )

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone.
