Discarding used sock without getting the “best” out of them will only add to the landfills. Polyester is one of the component materials used for socks and polyester makes years to decompose in the environment. Why not reuse your old socks and help save the environment. Here are fun manners to reprocess your old and worn-out socks.
Make sock dolls and glove dolls. With a pair of unpaired socks, you can transform them into huggable and fascinating tiny dolls. A much easier weekend plan is to make glove puppets. You will certainly make the small ones grin and express joy with glee with these do-it-yourself toys. Aside from kid’s playthings, you can also try out creating chew toys for your dog or cat.
Use as a pin cushion or an emery purse for your needles and pins. You can use any part of the sock. Cut off a part, sew one edge and fill up with stuffing for a pin cushion or refined sand as an emery bag to taper and clean your needles. But make a point that there are no gobs on the socks as the filling stuff will come out.
