Works for Me Wednesday: Old Socks

August 9th, 2006 at 01:05 pm


I love socks. I can never seem to find a matching pair when I want them, but I love them so very much. I buy them in packs, and I always seem to have a stray hanging around somewhere. I use them for loads of random stuff, and sometimes I even wash them.

My favorite use for old socks is to keep fruit from being bruised. I despise bruised fruit: I won't eat it if it's bruised, but I want to pack it in my lunch. So I put the fruit in the sock, and it stays nice and perfect for me. I do this with pretty much all fruit except citrus (cause it has a protective rind) and berries (because they get smooshy too easily.) Bananas, pears and apples are perfect for this treatment. I don't want to find berries smooshed in my toes, so I don't use little fruits. YMMV.

Anyway, if the thought of this makes you queasy, then there are other uses for old socks. I also use them as potholders, and as dusters (just stick your hands in and voila!) I guess I feel like my feet aren't too gross, so my socks aren't contaminated by working double-duty.

So if you're a picky eater and/or kind of a slob (like me, in both cases) then don't throw out an old sock! Smile

    Pot holder, does it keep from burning your hands? I would think the sock would be too thin.

    Great suggestions.

  2. fern Says:

    Good ideas, esp. for a sock you'd otherwise throw away cus it has a hole in it.

  3. annab Says:

    @ Laurel -- I don't use them for things I know are super hot. Just if I need to hold something briefly. More like a pot-grabber, I guess. Plus, I wear thick crew socks, which are more insulated.
