5 Things To Do with Clothespins
Start pinning the old-fashioned way, and learn cool new ways to use clothespins in your home and garden.
1. Keep Fingers Safe
Pinch a match with a spring-type clothespin to light fireplaces and tricky candle votives.
2. Light-proof Your Hotel Room
Clip hotel drapes together to keep out glaring rays (and eyes).
3. Seperate Cords
Label clothespins with permanent marker (TV, DVR, DVD, Stereo, Phone, etc.), and use them to identify the cords that belong to each appliance.
4. Align Your Garden
Wedge a clothespin into the fork (or the spot where a branch and the trunk meet) to keep saplings growing straight and strong.
5. Save Your Page
Clamp a pin onto a page in a book to save your place. If you’re part of a book club, clip together your favorite chapter for an easy way to flip and find.
