Six on Saturday: New Uses for Sponges

We all know that sponges are great for cleaning up spills.
But did you know those little absorbent friends can do more than 
just clean up a kitchen accident?

Discover six new uses for sponges that I’m sure you will soak up! 😉 

1) Pad your grip. Make a shovel or rake more comfortable to hold by wrapping it with a flexible sponge and securing it with a rubber band.

2) Perfect your pedi. Cut up a sponge and wedge the pieces between your toes before painting.

3) Dry narrow-neck vases. Attach a small sponge to a ruler and use it to dry up water in a hard to reach vase.
4) Contain your soil when planting. Line the bottom of a planter with a sponge to keep your soil in the pot.

5) Make an ice pack. Soak a sponge in water and place it in a re-sealable bag and freeze. Use them to help keep food cool or with injuries.
6) Seal envelopes with ease. Holiday card season can be hard on the taste buds. Replace a dried out ink pad with a damp sponge and use it to seal envelopes and attach stamps. Mail happy cheer — with no licking required! 🙂
