Uses for Bath Puff BallsI was wondering how to reuse those net "puff" balls used in the bath? My husband took one apart, then threw it in the trash. I looked at it and thought it could be used for something. All I can think of right now is tying onions in it but it's a very long tube and I won't use that much for that. What can you think of? I have several more that haven't been used, so can use lots of suggestions. I don't like to use them in the bath.

Hiding a Bright Paint ColorI have a guest room that is painted a burnt orange on top, and is pine wainscoting from hip level down. I have a friend who is coming to visit, that ABSOLUTELY hates orange anything! I'm not repainting it, and don't want to line the walls with paper to cover the orange. Any ideas what I can do, other than hand her a pair of sunglasses to wear in the room?
