Uses for Stocking Tops and Pantyhose

contest winner icon

Cut off the elastic tops of your tights and stockings before throwing them away. I use the stocking tops for hair bands and scrunchies. I use the elastic from the waistband of tights to secure my rubbish bag around the bin and also to keep the cat litter bag in place. I have used the legs from old tights to secure a parcel. Nice and strong!

I use old pantyhose and knee highs to tie tomato plants to the pole. They are also useful for storing onions.

I cut the legs off old pantyhose and tie leg ends shut. I insert the panty into my net for my vinyl swimming pool.

The sheer to waist do better. This way I can skim all the little bugs out of the water. I use strips of hose to tie plants too, they don't cut into the plants.

You can also store baked potatoes in them for storage.

I store onions in them after harvesting for the winter and they are perfect ties in the garden.
