CJ Extra: Tip of the week: Alternative uses for ordinary things

Use socks to protect breakables when moving

(Metro Creative Connections)

Here are some alternative uses for everyday items:

— Socks, T-shirts and towels make excellent padding when boxing up breakables for a move.

— Spiff up dark-colored leather shoes in a pinch by rubbing them with a balled-up black-and-white newspaper page. Full-color pages won’t work. No polish needed.

— Use a kneadable eraser to rub out scuffs on hardwood or tile floors and smudges on light-colored leather bags and shoes. An emery board also can be used to gently buff away stains on suede bags and shoes.
