Great Links for your Recyclables!

on February 29, 2012

Spend some time at http://www.favecrafts.com… There is so much information jammed into this site!  Here are some direct links to Reusing things you have laying around.

1.  Save your old toothbrushes!!!!  Check out this link to see neat ways to use those old brushes!  http://www.favecrafts.com/Green-Crafting/10-Crafty-Uses-for-Old-Toothbrush  I also like to clean my lint trap out every time I use my dryer.  I hear that you should really clean your lint trap good (until water can flow through the holes).  If it doesn’t, you have a build up on it from your dryer sheets.  This is considered a fire hazard if the air can not move freely through the holes.  So, I brush hard every time with a toothbrush to get into the holes of the vent (it is a habit now and easier to get a hold of the lint anyways)… I will check it every so often by running water through it too.

2.  Neat ways to reuse those mesh bags your produce comes in!  http://www.favecrafts.com/Green-Crafting/14-Creative-Uses-for-Mesh-Produce-Bags/ct/1

  1. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site. It’s simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it’s hard to get that “perfect balance” between superb usability and visual appeal. I must say you’ve done a excellent
    job with this. In addition, the blog loads super quick for me
    on Opera. Excellent Blog!
