She was cleaning out a drawer in her kitchen island the other day. Tossed in with birthday candles and corn holders, she came across several gelato spoons thrown into the mix.
How about: getting that last bit of face cream out of a jar? And wouldn’t this be a neat tool to spackle over nail holes with filler?
They went back in the drawer . . .
Cut these into thin slices and use the cork to silence pesky kitchen cabinet doors. One with glass panes seem to rattle nicely. Especially useful if you have kids who love to slam those doors.
Or stuff a few under the lid handle of a pot and it will always keep the handle cool.
These could be used to keep post earrings or pins organized in drawer, too.
You can label the length for easy spotting, too.
But the MOST unusual use of recycling she’s come across recently has to be this idea for used pianos: For the next two weeks, (June 1-16) along several New York City streets, 88 pianos that were destined for the junk heap have been rescued and refurbished, and will be available for passersby to tickle the ivories with anything they desire, from “Chopsticks” to “Moonlight Sonata.”
These decorated pianos, uprights and baby grands, will then be donated to schools, hospitals and other organizations.
Now THAT’S recycling in a grand way!
