Don't throw out those old stained kitchen hot pads. Recycle them by using them as knee pads while gardening.
By Vickie from Midland, MI
Make a pair of gardening pants out of an old pair of jeans. Sew the pockets from a pair of old pants on the knees of a pair of jeans. Then stuff the pockets with some foam rubber. These built in knee pads really save your knees. Just remove the foam rubber when you wash the pants.
To protect your knees when gardening, sew patch pockets on the knee area of your pants. Slip sponges or soft foam into the pocket. When you bend or kneel, these knee savers won't move or fall off. They're always ready and available when you want to use them. Have a safe, productive gardening season!
