Store Items in Paper Towel Tubes

Store taper candles inside empty paper towel tubes.

When traveling, store pantyhose in an empty paper towel tube to keep them from snagging.

You can also store hair ties around empty cardboard toilet paper tubes or paper towel tubes, and store small barrettes on the inside of the tube. Place tape over the end to keep them secure.


Paper Towel tubes can also be used to store crochet hooks, knitting needles, and started small projects so they don't unravel, cross-stitch projects, craft instructions, paint brushes, etc.

Toilet paper tubes are great for small extension cords and appliances that have a cord. Wrap the cord and put the toilet paper tube on. Works like a twist tie.

I use paper towel tubes to put my butcher knives in and keep them all in a draw..Just put a knife in the tube, then flatten it down some to sorta flatten it. The knifes are always protected and you dont have to worry about getting cut.... Have a Safe and Blessed Day.
