    There are many many uses for pantyhose...check it out on pinterest some of which include tying your vegetables up, protecting veggies and flowers from little critters, putting net hose over a clear vase, straining paint

    I use them to stuff decorative throw pillows. They can be washed & dried in your laundry.

    Knee highs are great in the garden:

    • Insert a slice of Irish Spring soap and hang around the garden/lawn to ward off deer and other critters that do NOT like the smell.
    • Use one of them to hang near a water source to use to wash your hands. This is a great idea for a wash station for the kiddos and camping.
    • Use an empty knee high to tie up leggy plants then cut off the excess.
    • Store bulbs, onions, etc., for the winter.
    • Fill with thistle seed and hang on a sunny tree branch for the finches. They will use the runner in the stocking to get to the seeds!

    Cut off slices and tie up your tomato plants. They are great for a nervous or lost dog as a soft muzzle.

      I remember my dad doing this once. Mom had to take hers off. The stockings got us home.

    You can make beautiful faux flowers with nylons and wire. Check out YouTube! The ideas so far are terrific. I will be using several myself!

    In winter time, un-attach your laundry dryer exit air hose end, that is probably hooked to a hole in your exterior wall. Turn the dryer hose around to face inside where you want the warm moist air to go. You may have to buy additional longer dryer hose. Use something like wire hangers to hang the dryer hose on if needed. Put your panty hose around the end of the hose to catch the exiting clothes fiber dust. Either use a large metal clamp, or something like a rubber band to keep the panty hose on around the dryer hose end. Come summer, reverse.
