5 Things To Do with Flip-flops

This fun, simple footwear has more to it than you’d think. Once you’re sick of that pair of flip-flops you can use it to clean the house, fix furniture, and more!

1 / 7

Did You Know?

Rumour has it that the design of modern flip-flops was inspired by traditional Japanese woven or wooden sandals.

2 / 7

Remove Pet Hair

Slip a rubber flip-flop onto your hand and rub carpets and rugs in the direction of the pile. Pet hair will form into balls that can then be vacuumed up. This works well on upholstery, too, including car seats.

3 / 7

Stop That Banging Door

Cut a wedge of rubbers from an old thong and use it to keep a door in the open position on a breezy day.


4 / 7

Prevent Rattling Windows

Can’t sleep whenever the wind blows? If your older-style windows rattle in their frames whenever it’s windy, cut slivers of rubber from an old thong and wedge them between the window and the frame.




5 / 7

Keep Furniture Steady

Stop the wobbles in a wonky table by cutting a piece of old thong to shape and gluing it beneath the offending leg.


6 / 7

Preserve Your Pedicure

Take a pair of flip-flops along to the esthetician next time you go to get your toes done. Slip them on post-pedicure so you can walk around without smudging the nail polish.
