Four Household Uses for Pantyhose

Pantyhose made a fashion comeback last year (thanks, Kate Middleton), so we're guessing you have a pair or two in your sock drawer. If they aren't spending a ton of time on your legs, you can use them around the house, instead! Here are four of our favorite household uses for pantyhose:
Store Onions.The next time you come back from the grocery store with a bag of onions, reach for some pantyhose, not the fridge! Onions need to be kept in a dry environment – a refrigerator is too damp for them to develop a protective layer of papery skin. Onions will also spoil faster if they're stored without air circulation. So, clip off a pantyhose leg, fill it with onions and hang it up in your pantry. They'll get plenty of air and you'll stay more organized!

    Another pantyhose idea, this one for gardeners. Having limited space in my veggie garden, I planted my cantelope along a trellis. Then I use a cut up pantyhose to make a sling for the young melon, tying it in place on the fence with part of the hose. They get light and expand as the melon grows. No more brown spots where the melon has sit on the ground.
